Career as Biomedical Engineer: A Sneak Peak

Biomedical Engineers are those who possess academic, professional and technical skills in setting up devices, instruments, tools and atmosphere perfect for medical experiments. For this, they should have a solid understanding of the biological materials to be experimented, as well as sharp engineering skills to create a perfect experiment atmosphere, unique for each experiment. With the technology expanding rapidly each day, the need to be a computer person too adds to be qualified as an engineer these days. Simply put, Biomedical Engineering (BEM) is an aggregated study of life science, chemistry, medicine, electrical, electronics and computer science.

Scope of Biomedical Engineering

Taking up a career in Biomedical Science could easily make your job search a sure shot success, as the fields employing BEM are fast earning their importance in the modern world, and growing substantially every day. Though the general suggestion given to biomedical engineers is to either take up a sales position in a well acclaimed medical supplies company, or to do further research in BEM, there are some excellent and less discussed jobs that biomedical engineers can go for. Let’s see some of the most interesting ones that can change anyone’s perception about the future of biomedical engineering.

Telemedicine Engineer

A recent survey by PricewaterhouseCooper (PwC) indicates that most people in India travel around 20 kilometers every time to visit their doctors. And, for the 70% of the population living in the rural areas of the country, the distance is even more. As most specialist doctors operate from major cities only, the rural population seldom gets the benefit of consulting a specialist doctor for ailments.

But, a simple biomedical engineering innovation called Telemedicine has changed everything about this. Plans to setup telemedicine centers are already in the board for several hospitals across the country. Apart from that, service providers like MediAngels, iClinic and Mediphone that mainly depends on Biomedical Engineers are fast gaining their popularity, in India and abroad. With an enhanced engineering skill and thorough understanding of how hospitals work, biomedical engineers can easily move up the queue of future safe engineers.

Recently, robots were introduced in medical processes like surgeries, treatments, etc. As more and more hospitals start adopting robotic technology in their processes, which they definitely will, the demand for biomedical engineers will go on increasing.

Bioinformatics Expert

Marc Wilkins coined the term “Proteome” by combining Protein and genome together. In 1997, the study of proteins in large scale that is the base of the famous “Human Genome Project” is termed as “Proteomics”. When it was found that mRNA analysis was not as effective as it should have been, most of the disease identification systems have gone to the protein level, and proteomics became famous overnight.

A career in biomedical engineering could not be much more interesting if one choose to be a Bioinformatics expert with skills biochemistry and computer science, as newer, computer based tools and techniques X ray crystallography and NMR Spectroscopy are highly demanded for proteome experiments these days.

Bio – MEMS

Bio MEMS is an abbreviation of Biological MicroElectroMechanical Systems. Bio MEMS is one of the most sought after branch of science these days, and one of the most popular applications of Bio MEMS is the widely known cell engineering. Yes! Every experiment, study and research about making artificial cells, tissues and organs are based on Bio MEMS, and a biomedical engineer with notable skills in Chemistry, Electronics and micro-fabrication can easily reach the top of the scientific community, when he or she chooses Bio MEMS as his specialty.

Other Careers in Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical Engineers who are experts in installation, setup and maintenance of medical equipment & tools are highly employable in research institutes and medical supply manufacturing companies. Also, the need for highly trained biomedical engineers who can take care of quality control and product testing in government and multinational Research and Development institutes are increasing exponentially.

When a master’s degree or Doctorate is pursued after a degree in biomedical engineering, instead of a career in engineering, people can go for a teaching job in universities and institutions. Fellowship or internship in research facilities can also lead to a successful career path, since only a few engineers get into R&D after their engineering studies, thus making it a career with less competition and more scope.

Apart from these, Biomedical engineering can also lead you to become a stockiest for reputed pharmaceutical companies, top level sales and customer service executive for medical equipment & supplies companies, etc.

Bio Medical Engineering is sure to be one of the most sought after in the not so distant future, and when it does, the competition is going to be really tough. The time is now, when you should stop calculating the advantages and disadvantages of taking up Biomedical Engineering, and start sharpening your skills in science, electronics and engineering. Rest assured, you won’t regret choosing biomedical engineering among others!
