A Career in Biomedical Engineering

A Career in Biomedical Engineering

by Melissa Abramovitz




Engineering is a top career field but differentiating between one engineering discipline and another is not always easy. The Careers in Engineering series provides easy-to-use guides for teens who are trying to understand the differences between various engineering careers and which of these careers might match their interests, skills, and talents. Each book focuses a single discipline, such as biomedical engineering or electrical engineering, among others. What the job entails, what it pays, and future prospects are discussed along with insights from industry insiders-and a Q&A interview in every book.
