This month, we’re thrilled to announce the launch of EiE Careers for Engineers, a new online experience for kids ages 7-12 to explore STEM careers. One career track featured on our interactive Careers quiz is biomedical engineering!Biomedical engineers design equipment and devices for health and wellness such as replacements for body parts and diagnostic machines. They also install, maintain, repair, and provide technical support for biomedical equipment to keep people and animals healthy. Their work provides current and future solutions to health problems and helps us stay well. Biomedical engineers do essential work every day!
What kinds of jobs do biomedical engineers do?
→ Medical device engineers design and test things like insulin pumps, joint and organ replacements and mobility aids
→ Animal biomedical engineers design solutions for creatures great and small who need help moving around like they would in the wild
→ Equipment testing and field servicing to make sure existing biomedical machines are working the way they should
