The Rise of Biomedical and Medical Engineering

Category


Biomedical and Medical Engineers are in demand. Employment in this role is predicted to grow 4% from 2019 to 2028. This increase is linked to society’s general shift towards everyday engineering solutions to help improve patient care. The Biomedical and Medical Engineering fields seeks to close the gap between engineering and medicine, combining the design and problem solving skills of engineering with medical biological sciences; advancing health care treatment. The combination of engineering principles with medical knowledge to address the needs of our ever-increasing population has contributed to the development of revolutionary and life-saving concepts such as artificial organs, prosthetics, clinical equipment such as MRIs and EKG/ECGs, regenerative tissue growth, pharmaceutical drugs and therapeutic biologicals.

The increased interest for pursuing a Biomedical and Medical Engineering career can be a reflection of the diligent marketing that has taken place around the subject, raising awareness and encouraging youngsters to consider it as a future career. It’s said that every 70 beds in a hospital, requires a Medical or Biomedical Engineer to monitor the actions in each hospital. However, it also hasn’t gone unnoticed that in recent studies, professionals in these fields ranked in the ‘above average’ category for job satisfaction and salary expectations. These careers can be considered low stress level jobs, with a good work-life balance and solid prospects to improve, progress and earn a high salary.
