Biomedical Engineers

Outlook

There will be great demand for skilled biomedical engineers in the future. Prospects look particularly good in the health care industry, which will continue to grow rapidly, primarily because people are living longer and require better medical devices and equipment. The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that employment for biomedical engineers will grow about as fast as the average for all careers through 2028. New jobs will become available in biomedical research in prosthetics, biotechnology, pharmaceutical manufacturing and related industries (especially in cost-management settings), the development of artificial internal organs, computer applications, and instrumentation and other medical systems. Three-dimensional printing, smartphones, and other technologies have created new job opportunities as the industry uses them in conjunction with medical equipment and devices.
