      You do need a bit of business to get by. One of my biomedical engineering undergraduate classes at university was a business one.

      Biomedical engineers at university also work a lot with companies as well as hospitals to build medical devices. Also some of the work we do at the university can be used commercially or we could start our own company for something we built.
