Hi, so Im a soon to be high school senior and i plan to either do biomedical or bioengineering, because i just dont know what is the difference between what they study or do. I want to know whats the best path to take in college if i want to become a biomedical/bioengineer. For example, ive heard that a B.S in Bioengineering/biomedical engineering will not get me a job unless i do a Masters. So, I was wondering if there is a path such as Electrical Engineering or Mechanical Engineering where i can "focus" on biology? Basically, i want to know what major i should input on my college applications this fall, since i dont know whats the best path for my future. I don't know what i should pick as my major in order to become a biomedical/ bioengineer.
Also, what type of engineering major would best transition into Biomedical/Bioengineering field?
Im from california and would most likely be attending a UC.
I hope i make sense. If not feel free to comment and leave questions. Thank you.
