Hi, I was thinking about getting my B.S. in Bioengineering, but I heard that's not a good idea and that I should get my M.S. in Bioengineering, because a B.S. will get you nothing in terms of jobs (this is what I have read on these forums). If that's true, then why does the Bureau of Labor Statistics rank "Biomedical engineers" as the projected 3rd fastest growing profession??

Futhermore, the Bureau says that entry-level education for the profession only requires a Bachelor's degree in Bioengineering. Biomedical Engineers : Occupational Outlook Handbook : U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
I'm really interested in the things that I think biomedical engineers do, but should I get my B.S. in something like Biochemistry or Biology? I'm interested in cells and life around us. I also like math. I would love to design new things for the medical field. So should I get my B.S. in Biology/Biochemistry, and then my M.S. in Bioengineering (if I decide that's still what I want to do?).
Also, is Bioengineering a good field to get into? BLS makes it seem so.
