Biomedical Engineers

There will be great demand for skilled biomedical engineers in the future. Prospects look particularly good in the health care industry, which will continue to grow rapidly, primarily because people are living longer and require better medical devices and equipment. The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that employment for biomedical engineers will grow much faster than the average for all careers through 2022. New jobs will become available in biomedical research in prosthetics,¬†biotechnology, pharmaceutical manufacturing and related industries (especially in cost-management settings), the development of artificial internal organs, computer applications, and instrumentation and other medical systems. In addition, demand will exist for professors to train the biomedical engineers needed to fill these positions.
