Biomedical Engineer 3.8 GPA overall 3.94 BCPM

Post by toy303 »

BME major graduated Magna Cum Laude
23o
3.8 GPA
3.94 BCPM
URM

Im just wondering based on the stats how are my chances given my ECs and major? I'm in the application process already and just trying to brace myself for whatever may happen.

Your stats seems to be kind of optimum for the biomedical engineering courses in many colleges.
For becoming a biomedical engineer the best way is a formal training in mechanical and electronics engineering with focused biomedical training. But since you have already completed the engineering degree you can go for a master's degree in biomedical.

The course would basically include neuroengineering fundamentals, biofluid mechanics, engineering electrophysiology, diagnostic imaging physics, and drug design, development, and delivery. You can later on take electives related to your ultimate career goals.

I also thinks that your stats looks to be reasonably optimum for the medicine engineering courses in several schools.For changing into a medicine engineer the most effective means may be a formal coaching in mechanical and physical science engineering with centered medicine coaching. however since you've got already completed the engineering degree you'll select a academic degree in medicine.
