         Biomedical Engineers

          Biomedical engineers are people who combine sciences (biology, chemistry, physics, and mathematics) and engineering to create and design new medical equipment. These people are required to make full use of their hands, have good vision, read and write, have good communication skills, have patience and imagination, and have good problem-solving skills. Biomedical engineers work in multidisciplinary teams consisting of surgeons, therapists, and other medical specialists. They spend most of their hours working in laboratories. Full-time biomedical engineers usually earn about $1570 weekly. Without biomedical engineers, the doctors today would not have had any technologically developed instruments. The advances biomedical engineers have made in their field have helped saved an uncountable number of lives.
