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.
