How does one go about getting into biomedEng with a degree in mechanical engineering. Just the artificial limb and organ side of things?

usually it's incredibly easy . . . at least for biomechanics. for artificial organs, you would probably specialize imo depending on your research. the ugrad classes (about 3 of them) deal with the heart and vascular system, liver and kidney, and lungs and blood.

limbs might apply to biomechanics, so you should really be a good candidate!

Is for getting into a graduate program, or as in getting a job. I was asking more for getting a job.

real world jobs exist in the field of bioengineering? this would be the first i've heard of it. . .

Hahaha there are actually a lot of jobs available for it here in New Orleans. But the requirements for all of them say BS in Biomed Eng or relevant degree. I'm just curious if a degree in MechE is "relevant" enough for something like that, along with some personal learning of the field?

yeah, go for it . . . it can't hurt.

see if a community college offers bio1-2 at night . . .
