Hi! My name is Aarti Kamath and I am a master’s student in biomedical engineering at Drexel University. I joined the biomedical engineering program in order to learn about medical devices, and today, as I look back I am sure I made the right choice. The curriculum of the program allowed me the flexibility to choose the courses that focused on my area of interest and that are crucial in propelling my career in the area of medical device development.
I realize that my experience at Drexel has been a little different than that of my friends at different universities - I will be graduating with a MS degree AND also with almost 7 months of hands on professional experience at a world-renowned pharmaceutical device company. I completed the graduate co-op options offered in the MS in biomedical engineering and biomedical science program and found a paid co-op (internship) position with B.Braun Medical Inc. in Allentown, PA. During my co-op I was able to apply what I learned in the classroom and gain many additional new skills while making significant contribution to the healthcare industry. After graduation I will be continuing on as a full time employee with B. Braun Medical Inc.
