According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment in biomedical engineering is expected to grow 10% from 2021 to 2031, faster than average for all occupations. About 1,200 openings for biomedical engineers are projected each year, on average, over the next decade. The median salary was $97,410 per year as of May 2021. The increasing possibilities of new technologies and the increasing applications of medical equipment and devices will likely lead to an increase in employment for biomedical engineers.
Bioengineers have a close working relationship with other scientists and medical professors to help achieve their goals. Bioengineers and biomedical engineers combine engineering principles with sciences to design and create equipment, devices, computer systems, and software. WSU's proximity to our medical school as well as the Detroit Medical Center makes an excellent environment to learn and grow with one another.
Wayne State is a campus that truly cares for its students. There are a great number of academic and extracurricular activities to explore on or around campus. It is very easy to get involved with others, and students are very easy to get along with. It is a great social and academic environment.
