“Biomedical engineers are translators,” Dr. Dawn Elliott explains. She says that the difference between biomedical engineer and other engineering careers is “breadth vs. depth.”

“Other engineering disciplines are more specialized,” she says. “BME is a more diverse engineering education, and a more diverse biological education."

This allows biomedical engineers to work closely with physicians, researchers, manufacturers and sales associates.

The profession will play a profound role in healthcare improvements in the coming years, which will fuel the profession’s astounding growth in job opportunities and compensation.
