    Re: Details about Job of Lecture job options in Biomedical engineering

    Biomedical engineers may work in hospitals, universities, industry and laboratories. They enjoy a range of possible duties, including the design and development of artificial organs, modeling of physical processes, development of blood sensors and other physiologic sensors, design of therapeutic strategies and devices for injury recovery, development and refinement of imaging techniques and equipment, development of advanced detection systems, testing of product performance, and optimal lab design.
    According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics2, Biomedical Engineers have excellent job prospects and earning potential in coming years. A 2006 report stated:
    Biomedical engineers held about 16,000 jobs in 2008. Manufacturing industries employed 36 percent of all biomedical engineers, primarily in the pharmaceutical and medicine manufacturing and medical instruments and supplies industries. Many others worked for hospitals. Some also worked for government agencies or as independent consultants.
    Job Outlook
    Employment of biomedical engineers is expected to grow much faster than average for all occupations through 2018. The aging of the population and the focus on health issues will increase the demand for better medical devices and equipment designed by biomedical engineers. For example, computer-assisted surgery and molecular, cellular, and tissue engineering are being more heavily researched and are developing rapidly. In addition, the rehabilitation and orthopedic engineering specialties are growing quickly, increasing the need for biomedical engineers. Along with the demand for more sophisticated medical equipment and procedures is an increased concern for cost efficiency and effectiveness that also will boost demand for biomedical engineers. However, because of the growing interest in this field, the number of degrees granted in biomedical engineering has increased greatly, leading to the potential for competition for jobs.
    Median annual earnings of biomedical engineers were $77,400 in 2008. The middle 50 percent earned between $59,420 and $98,830. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $47,650, and the highest 10 percent earned more than $121,970.
    According to a 2005 salary survey by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, bachelor's degree candidates in biomedical engineering received starting offers averaging $52,355 a year, and master's degree candidates, on average, were offered $61,000.

    you dont need to worry about the scope ,its huge and leads to a very bright future.

    good luck
