Are jobs in this industry on the rise? Are there any sub-sectors that are growing?

Where are the jobs? Which places have the most biomedical engineer opportunities?

Hmm... well, consider that most you are jus t recent grads. I only still in school, but I believe that securing an entry level position is always difficult, and that those with connections are at a great advantage. I personally hope one would not experience this kind of difficulty with more years of experience under their belt. Good luck folks.

Andre in Dayton, Ohio said: where you can get cerification ? training ? experience ?

fresh graduates have no experience ? even PhD students dont have practical experience . so whats the solution .

i have master degree in biomedical engineering since 2006 and now we are 3008 and still cant find a job !!!

there should be a solution to this problem ?!

I think it's a matter of location. This industry is very concentrated in a couple of area, California and Minnesota. There are still a lot of opportunities outside these states, but your chance of getting job is much higher if you happen to live in these two states. I recently got a Master's Degree in BME and immediately had multiple offers in California. Probably the best bet is to do internships while still in school, as those almost always turn into offers if you make a good impression (that's where one of my offers came from). For entry level, there are a lot of startups in this field that can't really afford to hire seasoned professionals so they end up hiring recent grads. I would say that is probably the best place to look.

it is really hard to find a job since i moved here in the US. There are lots of good opportunities outside this country but trully its hard to get a job without connections.

Yes, it is very hard. I just graduated with a BS in biomedical eng. and I am having the hardest time to find a job. Half of my graduating class did not have a job when they graduated. Those who did have a job got an offer through their past internship. I did an internship as well but my luck the company went out of business. If I could go back, I would have never majored in BME. The job market is horrible. Plus its a well known major either. Does anybody know if there any institute that provides training for recent grads from biomedical engineering, so that at least could get some practical training for the industry?

If Biomed, Chem, and Materials are your only options, go for Materials.

I find the comments on this forum to be somewhat puzzling. First, when I look at the starting salaries reported for biomedical engineers at both general salary survey sites and at specific colleges, I see consistently that starting salaries for BME's with bachelor degrees are in the range of 50,000 to 60,000. This is a substantial premium above what most college graduates earn. If there is a glut of biomedical engineers relative to the job opportunities, it is hard to understand why the field commands such high starting salaries. Moreover, the starting salaries of bio-medical engineers are competitive with the starting salaries of other more traditional engineering disciplines. Again, this seems inconsistent with the notion that it is harder for BME's to find jobs.
I am also skeptical of the viewpoint that biomedical engineers are less prepared for entry level positions than other engineering disciplines (e.g. jack of all trade, master of none) I am a lawyer, who worked as a economist, before going to law school so admittedly I don't have experience in the engineering field. However, it has been my experience in every post-college job that I have held that nearly all the skills necessary to perform a specific job are learned on the job. I have found that my legal education was very necessary, but only insofar as I could speak the "same language" as other lawyers and had a sufficient understanding of law that I could understand the on-the-job training. None of the big law firms that hire the top law students from the top schools expect that their entry level lawyers will be prepared out-of-school to represent important clients. They develop the needed skills after several years. Maybe engineering is different so I would be curious what employed engineers have to say. Incidentally, a good friend who is an R&D Eengineer at Proctor and Gamble tells me that he has hired physics majors without engineering training for entry level engineering jobs.

PhD increases ur chance of getting a full time job unlike Masters where you research for only 2 years max....

It is true just like the Ph.D guy said we need to plan things out beforehead. I myself am BME master and am just planning to enter the job market. My honest suggestion: 1. as an bachelor, don't do BME, instead pick EE/ME/CS, and you can always minor in bio. B/c lots of Bio companies prefer those majors than a BME which is a little bit of everything but not specific enough to handle a job. 2. If you go for Ph.D, BME wasn't bad at all, b/c it's easy to get grant, and then during 5-6 year time you can take a lot of class and finish w/ 2-3 masters(EE, ME, CS) so when u r done,you have more options... good luck guys, as for me, I really plan to get a 2nd master in CS, which is lucrative and easy to find a job, even in Bio field.

oh, and i forgot to mention that thank god i was able to finish BS+MS BME in 3.5 yrs. so i still have time for a 2nd master while my peers are taking their regular masters. what happens if those of you who will finish w/ a BME master and still find it hard to get a job(b/c BME is too general and usually u don't get to master a single area)? Are you going to do a 2nd master like i do? My humble suggestion would be ones above, and if you just really want a BME, do BS.EE/ME/CS +MS. BME , or B.S BME + MS. EE/ME/CS, leave yourself some options.....

I feel like there are a lot of people struggling for BME jobs which come as a shock to me considering How fast The field is growing. check out the department of labor and industries website: www.bls.gov/oco/ocos027.htm. It says the growth rate for BME is 72% over the next 10 years!!! that is phenomenal. I am currently a student in the BME program at Drexel University in Philadelphia and they are one of the oldest coop schools in the country. Basically, to anyone who is unfamiliar with coop, a BS degree at Drexel takes 5 years but you do 3 six month coops within the professional world (and i am not talking about making copies and filling) and these count for credit towards graduating and are also Paid. I encourage anyone who is thinking of looking at colleges to take a look at one that offers such an opportunity. My first coop was as production engineer for Johnson & Johnson manufacturing insulin pumps, great experience and networking opportunities. I hope i do not have the same issues when i graduate in 2 years that most of these people seem to be having. GOOD LUCK fellow engineers

If that's the case, then you are pretty safe to land on a job. Not all universities have such a great co-op like u guys do. A good co-op or internship basically just turn into a permanent job,OR else you have to manually apply for 100+ related jobs which i don't even think I can find that many.

Here is some geographic perspective.

California, Massachusetts, Texas and Minnesota seem to be the states with the most biomedical engg. jobs. If one you are just graduating and can move, these states are good options for biomed.

You could try getting grant money to start your own biomed company. Go to grants.gov through the NIH. Lots of good opportunities there. Come up with an idea, get funding, go through FDA or UL or whatever and get to market. Long but rewarding process but if you have a good idea I have seen it work

Thus, I'm still searching the job market for that MIRACULOUS opportunity.

This is entirely true. I have not had luck finding job postings, and definitely not had interviews for a bio engineering role.

I graduated last year with a BSc in Biomedical Engineering and currently I am doing a Master degree which i will finish in September. Now I am looking for a job in the Biomedical sector, though, all the entry levels need a minimum of 2 years experience. I have only a 6 months internship experience. How can I get a job?

I am really disappointed. Ge has great entry levels for biomedical engineering, but it is only in US and I don't have work permit. Siemens, on the other hand, offers such a programm but requires excellent German. My German is not that good.

So. . . what should I do? Practice my German, marry an american guy. . . . ohhhh I need to find a job. . .

CHRIS C. in Tempe, Arizona

To those of you who are newbies and still in school, allow me to shed some light on the industry in the real world. Biomedical Engineering specifically medical equipment support is in fact in demand. However as a regional director who oversees 6 programs in 6 seperate medical centers naturally what I look for is experience. The concept is plug and play, the ability to wind this individual up with the compatability to work and adapt in any enviroment or facility. Unfortuanetly, the selections are few and far between. Keep in mind that we are service providers, and customer service is of the utmost importance. If you are in school now I would suggest that you become familiar with safety standards, policy and procedures, performance indicators, communications, professional business writing, especially email etiquette. Dont dress your resume with too much credentialling and degrees. These are wonderfull accomplishments but for the most part useless in the field. I have worked with students from Duke and even MIT and I have learned that although your scholastics are outstanding it does not prepare for the demands we face everyday. I have seen. should have been genius, pass out in the OR, become so nautius that they just walk out , and thats the easy part. Its the sheer pressure we face everyday and it never ends. So be sure to remain objective when you interview, after all for most of us this what we do and its a love/hate relationship. Remain objective, positive, energetic, flexible, willing, enthusiastic, do not limit yourself to a single solution, think contingency, a back up for the back up. Most of all do not ask about salaries, especially if you have no real experience. In other words, focus on what you will learn and the oppurtunities available. I can tell you that we are eccentric. highly intelligent , super multi-taskers and we dont require coffee to stay afloat. If there was a word of advice to give. INTEGRITY.

Eli in Tel Aviv, Israel

Hello,
I am beginning university in 1 month. I am currently signed up for degree in biomed engineering. Ive spoken to many people in this field and they explained to me that a first degree in BME is problematic since you come out neither an engineer or a doctor or biologist or really anything. Ive been advised to do a degree in mechanical or electrical engineering and study BME for perhaps mastrlers but only after i have a more practical and strong foundation in a more classical engineering.
Ive decided to switch to a dual degree program in mechanical engineerig and physics. Does anyone have any insight on this matter? Is it true that a first degree in BME is relatively "useless" ?
Thanks

I am exactly the same. A PhD in Bioengineering (which they say is nearly the same as biomedical engineering though i'm pretty sure bioengineers are not as well regarded). I have been looking for work for 1 year while I was ABD. Now that I have graduated, I have been looking for work for 3 months. I have applied to biomedical companies and software companies. Nothing yet. BLS.gov is a liar - jobs are not growing in this sector. I am unemployed. No joke I will be working in a coffee shop soon just to pay bills.

Honestly, I have a degree in biomedical engineering (B.S.) from Boston University. It is just about useless. Most of my professors and other professionals I have met working in bioengineering majored in either physics or mechanical engineering. The people I know working as biomedical engineers were mech Es or electrical Es in college. I would focus on the major without the bio. You can always pick up the biology easily after learning the engineering aspect.

Hi guys,
I've read all the comments, I must agree with the ppl who say biomedical engineering is a bit of everything but nothing specific. I've just finished my 3rd year of it, it's a very very very difficult degree and to think the job prospects are limited is such a major disappointment . I'm a student in Galway Ireland , it's supposed to be one of the biggest biomedical engineering "hub" in Europe! There are a lot if company's in Galway that are here .... However my problem is that as part of our degree we are supposed to go on a 5 month work placement in a company that makes medical devices , stents, catheters etc... But none of these company's will take on any students now , I've tried and tried but not having any luck! This is going to totally affect me when I qualify and start looking for employment ! I really wish I could get some experience somewhere , any1 any advice/help ?? Thanks guys .

I changed my major to ME only because of the job prospect of BME.Still,I am thinking about having a concentration on BME. I think you could do the same.You could do your minor on ME Or anything else that you like.
I believe the important thing is to bring something special out of you.If you cannot do it,it always gets hard to shine in any major you pursue.

Hey Tel,

What people say is correct, you will be having a very difficult time if you rely on your Bioe degree. I'm a dual degrees recent grad of 2011, I have a degree in mechanical engineering and one in bioengineering. I tried looking for a job with just bioengineering related works, searched 5 month and couldn't get any reply, then I just start looking for ME job, in a month a got two job offers, picked one closest to me.

At least my ME is paying all my bills (I'll be debt free in 2 months all thanks to ME job), the pay is average with full benefits, maybe just maybe once i'm debt free I'm gonna try and start a medical device company. I'm still very optimistic.

To all who worry about job prospects, make sure you pick a traditional field such as ME, or EE they are your bread winners and then pick your dream field just for hell of it. Also always apply to state school when possible, I learn my lesson on my first two years of private college, when I transferred to state university, I end up with enough scholarship to pay some of my private college debts. All my current student debts are from that first 2 years of private school... so don't fall for their glossy brochures go with your cheapest but decent school...

I'm in my 3rd year of my UG biomedical course. And i was hoping to prepare for GRE and do my Ms abroad. But from what i have read, it got me thinking again.
I'm really confused of what to do, after taking such a specific course I find myself without many options.
I have one year to decide. Either an Ms or MBA.
I really like the course and i want to continue but if it is so hard to find a job, I would have to try management. Also, my grades aren't very impressive and i dont expect to get any financial aid for the Ms.
I cant seem to come to a decision. please help me out

hari, you better off not taking MS or MBA at this time, you will get into a lot of debt and no job, in current economy even experienced MBA has no job prospect, so don't join their ranks. After your undergrad studies, try and find a job and get a few years of experiences (& save up money) before going back to school.

Good luck.

BTW, bilingual is awesome (get one if you got the chance), I found another job that is for ME with 50% increase from my current job.. time for me to move to another state
