    Hi, I have a degree and masters in Chemical Engineering. I graduated 2 years ago and I have been working in an Accenture, a Technology Consulting firm. However, I want to get back into engineering- is it too late? I also want to go into Bio medical Engineering with prosthetic limbs and artificial organs etc, but this is not chemical engineering. How would I go about this and where do I apply etc? Thanks, Ceire

    Hi. I am a girl student in biomedical engineering. I have consulted some experts in this job. One asked me about my future since I have chosen this field saying, "only one girl candidate is selected out of 100 in interviews (in this field alone)." I asked him why and said to him that women are working in all areas today. His answer was a smile. Really, is there any complications to getting a job in the biomedical field for a woman? If yes, please explain to me about it so that I can ...
