Why I chose to be Biomedical Engineer...

     I plan to be a biomedical engineer because not only they are part of the science field ;they get to help/improve someone's life by making machines. Another reason why I would biomed engineer is because they get to help people without being a doctor and without seeing blood on daily basis.This engineers help people with disabilities, they create prosthetic and other equipment. Helping someone to start walking for the first time or helping them to start walking again is something that will help them forlife.That's what I want to do help and make a positive mark in their life. In addition, they also are responsible for creating artificial legs,arms,vessels,lungs,hearts and many more. This will improve peoples life and maybe save their life. This engineers also create machines for daily medical basis, for example the MRI(Magnetic Resonance Imaging)machine and automatic insulin pump. I wanted to become a biomedical engineer because my imagination won't be limited because the more ideas to help improve others the better for those people who need a better health.

Primary Source:

In an interview from Career Cruising; Carolyn a teacher from a 4-year college, where she teaches biomedical engineering and how to develop machines to undergraduates and graduate students. In this interview Carolyn mentions that you must be talented in both math and science but that's not all you must be willing to learn on daily basis and be open-minded. Another qualities that you must have is to be able to think clearly, listen carefully, communicate clearly and be able to work with others. Carolyn mentions that one of the greatest challenges in this job is that, "Keeping up with current developments in such a rapidly changing field is a challenge" "..demonstrate that you’re familiar with work that has already been done in your field." "So after putting all that work into a credible work plan, you might not be granted anything at all." Carolyn explains that this job requires patience and a lot of responsibilities, yet still enjoys teaching students about biomedical engineering and to continue to do some research.
