    Energy,How things produce movement. Well in my school the last exams where newtons laws and the conservation of energy so i really am an ignorant. I was thinking in mechanical they look to see even robots, motors and things like that.

    Biomedical look to see a lot of calculations or Mechatronic i am clueless =(

    I'm just finishing up a undergraduate in biomedical, and unless your really interested in somthing like tissue engineering, what would likly suggest is to enter a ME or EE program and find a prof to work with who does biomedical engineering to work with but get a degree in EE or ME and try to take a couple biology courses. If a biomedical company wants someone who understands mechanics, they ofter hire a ME and if they want someone who understands electrical stuff they get a EE. Unless your going to be working for small start ups where a braod knowlege base is useful, or you want to go to grad school I would stick to ME,EE or ChemE to be more employable.

    Sounds like you might enjoy Mechanical. You should go to the Mechanical Engineering forum here and see what kind of things they're discussing...just to get an idea of the kinds of things they study.
