Hi..
I just wanna ask a few questions about the Biomedical Electronics Engineering course that i have taken for my Undergraduate studies..

Here are the questions:

1. What are the future of this course?
2. Is this course really beneficial?
3. Where does the job opportunities in this course? please state the country which offers the
best job opportunities for the qualified engineers in this course.

Thanks:)

Your questions are fairly meaningless without context. Are you looking to get into Biomedical Engineering? If so, then yes- it will be beneficial. If not, then you could probably find a more relevant elective.

I once worked with that title years ago at a medical center. A lot of the work involved instrumentation amplifiers, bio-tachometers, etc. And there was trouble-shooting and repair.

I never took any specific courses in biomedical electrons back then and things have probably changed, but I would think if you have an EE degree, biomedical engineering would make use of the same principles.

I've been in the biomed business twice. I'm currently in it. However, almost none of the people I've worked with are actually biomed engineers. Most have been electrical, mechanical, or software engineers that are really good at what they do. Occasionally, we have physics people that resort to engineering because physics can be a hard area to break in, and these guys have been very good.

Of course most places want someone with a medical engineering background, because there is a good deal of regulatory knowledge that comes with the business. It's also kinda nice to have people that "know" the business and can anticipate their duties.

As for places, they are spread around. Any where technology is prevalent, you'll have biomed companies popping up as well. Think California and Boston. Also, there's a good bit of engineering in Minisotta.

Then again, so medical firms are the product of random business men, and these companies can be almost anywhere - though they'll likely be near a large city (a source of labor / resources)

It's not a business for anyone. It's a sheer wall of paperwork and procedures, and you'll find plenty of people that like that environment. Then again, it has some security against the economy, and if your in a design group, you may experience some work that few on the planet will ever see.

thanks to all that reply my answer...

it's just i still not very exposed to what the future of biomedical engineering undergraduates and i'm a little bit worried bout it...sometimes when we had learn so many tough subjects yet the outcome in the reality life was not what we've had expected...
