Here are a couple of links to Biomedical Engineering employment statistics.

Clearly, the job market for program graduates is very good. Students should still start early, use the resources provided by MSOE's Career Services office and work hard at finding a good position.

MSOE is very fortunate to have an alumnus, Brian Biersach, deeply involved in medical device testing, standards and compliance. In fact, he runs a company,  Medical Equipment Compliance Associates (MECA Home: IEC 60601-1 Standards Compliance and Certification (IEC, UL, AAMI, CSA, EN)) that provides medical device testing services. Brian is very supportive of our program allowing class field trips to his company's labs, often hiring our students as interns and frequently speaking to our classes.

A particular useful resource he has provided online to the medical device design community is an extensive summary of international medical device standards. This list is available at: http://mecalabs.com/assets/meca-60601-ed3-standards-list-(2013-10-15).pdf. I urge students to consult this list as they investigate standards that may apply to their capstone design project.

Here's an unusual opportunity for graduate study (and I suppose summer research)...


We invite seniors who plan to pursue graduate education in Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Computer Science, or any of the Engineering disciplines to explore the Tufts University Soft Material Robotics – IGERT website. Information on how to apply for a Soft Material Robotics – IGERT Fellowship is available on the website.
