Molecular Biology & Biotechnology (MBB) vs Biological Engineering

Postby kingzednoc123 » Thu May 11, 2017 8:03 am

In terms of career paths, which one is better? What are the similarities and differences of what one can do after one finishes from these programs? Also, are these good pre-medical programs? Thank you!

Hi, Talha here. I have done pre-medical. after that i got admission in biomedical engineering and i am of the view its more better than Molecular Biology, Biotechnology (MBB) & Biological Engineering. But you need to learn more math in it.

They can both lead to great careers. I would go with whatever you find more interesting.

Both of these would be great options! In the case of differences, biomedical engineering focuses more on heath technology (making artificial organs). Getting a degree in biomedical engineering could lead to being employed at hospitals, laboratories, universities and many more great options.

Molecular biology would focus more on the study of biology that looks at the structure and functions of cells. This would not include as much technology as would biomedical engineering so my suggestion would be to determine what major you would like to go into based on you liking and knowledge of engineering/computers. Likewise to biomedical engineering, a major in molecular biology would allow for some great and uniques job opportunities. I hope this was helpful!
