Career In Biomedical Engineering

Planning a career in Biomedical Engineering?


Then, it is the right place for you to know about all the important topics about Biomedical Engineering.

Biomedical Engineering is the engineering techniques with organic sciences to improve the quality of healthcare, pharmaceutical and human life.

This field is gaining a huge popularity around the globe with its significant innovations in the medical field.

In a simple way we can say that:

“Biomedical Engineering is an interdisciplinary field of engineering courses that deals with the study of engineering laws and techniques that are applied in the medical field.”


This field tries to close the gap between engineering & medicine.

Biomedical engineers also known as Bio/Design/Clinical Engineers.

Biomedical engineer is the ocean of knowledge. As a biomedical engineer, they have knowledge of Maths, science, biology and medicine.

Biomedical engineers work at the intersection of engineering, the life sciences and healthcare.

    The salary part of this degree course is not attractive compared with a degree in ECE and computer science. The beginners get a starting salary as six lakhs per annum whereas a bio medics get less than half of this salary! Wonder why anyone opt for this course when the basic qualification for both the degree courses is the same and the duration of the courses is the same four years! Is there any suggestion why anyone should Falk for bio medical engineering?
