An undergrad degree in Chemical Engineering then a graduate degree in Biomedical Engineering
Hi, I am transferring in the fall to UT Austin ( I am currently attending a community college). I want to work in the biomedical engineering field, so I decided to pursue a B.S. in chemical engineering, and then, I will get a M.S. in biomedical engineering. I chose this path because I heard that biomedical engineering graduates have a hard time find jobs since employers prefer degrees from traditional engineering disciplines such as chemical, mechanical, and electronic engineering (I need to consider the job outlook of this profession because I help my parents to stay financially afloat- my father is disabled, and my mother takes care of him). Since I am getting closer to transferring, I am having doubts about my choice. Do you think that by getting a B.S. in chemical engineering, and later, a M.S. or PH.D in biomedical engineering would be a good idea? Or should I just pursue a B.S. in biomedical engineering and then pursue a graduate degree in biomedical engineering as well? Any advice you can give me, it will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for all the help you can provide.
