Selected Engineering Occupations
Biomedical Engineers integrate engineering with the life sciences to improve human and animal health. This is accomplished by applying engineering, life sciences, and imaging as diagnostic tools as well as improving the function of living systems by developing medical devices and systems. There are a wide variety of disciplines within biomedical engineering, including biomedical imaging, biomechanics, drug delivery, neural engineering, and product sales. A Bachelor of Science in biomedical engineering is required for entry-level positions.

Biomedical Engineering Technicians maintain and repair medical equipment in hospitals, clinics, and other health facilities. These duties require the ability to diagnose and repair malfunctions and to be able to read equipment blueprints. Entry-level positions require an associate degree in applied science or electronics.

Chemical and Biomolecular Engineers are responsible for the development and production of pharmaceuticals and bioengineered materials such as polymers, composites, and a variety of chemicals. Chemical and Biomolecular engineers work in a variety of industries such as pharmaceuticals, food and plant processes, and medical devices. Entry-level positions require a bachelor degree in chemical or biomolecular engineering
