Mechanical Engineering to Biology
I'm posting to find out if anyone has any experience getting there undergraduate degree in an engineering degree (mechanical in my case) and going to graduate school in a biology field?
To be more specific, I am currently in my senior year for mechanical engineering. For about the last year, I have begun to worry that I would not fit in at a traditional engineering job. I have always been interested in research but am beginning to think I might be better suited to work in the life sciences. To be even more specific, I am looking a labs which specialize in comparative biomechanics (which often falls under biology but has a engineering/physics elements).
What are the implications of having a B.S. in ME and a M.S. (or PhD) in Biology? To me, it seems like this would just make broaden my work opportunities, which is something I am definitely looking for.
