Length of Training/Requirements
The requirements for this field depend on the chosen specialty and work setting. Educational requirements may vary from a bachelor’s degree in engineering to a doctoral degree. The doctoral degree is typically required for a teaching or administrative position at the university level.

Licensure/Certification

Certification is voluntary and can be obtained through the International Certification Commission and the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation. Applicants who have passed an examination administered by the National Council of Engineering Examiners, have an engineering degree from an accredited program, and who have four years of work experience may apply for a professional license. Biomedical engineers working with the public, also have the option of becoming registered as professional engineers. Two exams exist: one administered by the Texas State Board of Professional Engineers and the other by the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation.
