Biomedical, Electrical, or Computer Engineering for Pre-Med?
I am currently a Junior in high school and I have recently become interested in pursuing medical school after receiving an undergrad degree. Before inquiring about med school I was fairly set on majoring in either computer or electrical engineering; however, after doing some research I have found that biomedical engineering is a very marketable engineering degree for med school and I am fairly interested in pursuing this degree. That being said, I have also heard that a BME degree does not offer very much job oppurtunities if I were to decide to not pursue med school. Is this still true today and what would be your prediction for careers in this field in the future. Also, if I decided to major in electrical or computer engineering, would I still be able to fit in all the med school pre reqs? Finally, would a biomedical degree be more helpful in getting into med school (as far as MCAT scores and marketability goes) than a computer or electrical engineering degree? Thanks in advance for your help.2 replies
