Duties and Responsibilities:
Biomedical Engineers use engineering principles to solve health related and medical problems. They do a lot of research in conjunction with life scientists, chemists, and medical professionals to design medical devices like artificial hearts, pacemakers, dialysis machines, and surgical lasers. Come conduct research on biological and other life systems or investigate ways to modernize laboratory and clinical procedures.
Frequently biomedical engineers supervise biomedical equipment maintenance technicians, investigate medical equipment failure, and advise hospitals and installing new equipment.
Biomedical engineers work at hospitals, universities, industry, and research laboratories.
Average: $29,000 – $600,000
