Career options for Bioengineering graduates
Bio and Biomedical Engineering is a very wide and diverse area - so graduates holding a degree in Bio and Biomedical engineering can find themselves on one of very different job placements - it depends on the interests of graduates and their specialization.
Bioengineering graduates are welcome in food production, pharmacology and pharmacy, Medical device industry, Hospital equipment selection, development of mechanisms based on the principles of biological organisms, human medicine, healthcare consulting, Biomechanics and rehabilitation.
Three most popular fields for Bio and Biomedical Engineering are Biomedical devices (which is more engineering area), Biomedical research (which precedes the Biomedical devices area) and Pharmacology.
A degree in Bio and Biomedical Engineering is usually very practical and prepares specialists, so usually graduates find a job after receiving an undergraduate degree, since it provides all needed skills. A option of completing an undergraduate degree in more basic area (for example, Medicine), and then receiving a Master’s degree in Bio and Biomedical Engineering is rather popular too.
An undergraduate degree in Bioengineering and Biomedical Engineering is also a great start for education in Medicine, Engineering or other fields. Many graduates holding a degree in Bioengineering and Biomedical Engineering apply for graduate study programs in Dentistry, Law or Clinical Medicine.
Graduates may also continue their education in order to get access to more advanced career options, or start research and teaching activity in an institution or become an independent researcher.
