From the reviews:
"Bioengineering and Biotechnology are emerging as distinct disciplines amid the biological revolution and during a period of rapid globalization. These interesting times offer us unprecedented opportunities for professional and personal growth. This book covers many important areas of opportunity, including entrepreneurship, finance, law, and education, with a global perspective. The legacy of our times will include how well we used our rapidly advancing technologies to improve the world around us. This book provides a roadmap for the contributions of Bioengineering and Biotechnology in this quest."
-James E. Moore, PhD, Texas A&M University
"This book will be essential reading for all those seeking career guidance in bioengineering and biotechnology."
-Tony Bradshaw, PhD, Director bioProcessUK - BioIndustry Association (BIA), Chairman, The Royal Academy of Engineering/BIA Life Scientists' Career Seminars
"...the topics [are] quite extensive covering definitions, core curriculum, career opportunities, including a wide range of alternative career pathways as well as social and ethical issues. The material covered is unlike any of the standard publications related to these fields of activity... [the book] can be read at different stages of one's career."
-Joseph D. Bronzino, PhD, Trinity College
"The editors have assembled a very distinguished and diverse array of people to present true-to-life depictions of the opportunities--and responsibilities--that await those who pursue careers in biomedical engineering and biotechnology. … This excellent volume is without comparison and deserves a place in every biology, medical, engineering, and undergraduate library. Summing Up: Essential. Students of all levels and practitioners." (K. A. Newman, Choice, Vol. 46 (8), April, 2009)
From the Back Cover
Bioengineering and biotechnology are exploding--the number of career opportunities is expected to increase twice as fast as for other science and engineering fields over the next decade. Bioengineers and biotechnologists have enormous potential to meet employment needs ranging from traditional careers in science and engineering through a host of alternative career pathways. This book provides a roadmap to the broad and varied career development opportunities in bioengineering, biotechnology, and related fields. Eminent practitioners lay out career paths related to academia, industry, government and regulatory affairs, healthcare, law, marketing, entrepreneurship, and more. Lifetimes of experience and wisdom are shared, including "war stories," strategies for success, avoidance of common pitfalls, and discussions of the authors' personal views and motivations. Career Development in Bioengineering and Biotechnology is an indispensable guide to some of the most exciting career and professional growth opportunities in science, engineering, and beyond, and a "must read" for anyone interested in a career related to this burgeoning field.
"An ambitious undertaking with the goal of not only presenting career options and career development techniques but also addressing how the work of an individual can impact society...the information is practical, concrete, and would be of most use to those in the early stages of professional preparation or for more experienced personnel in search of more satisfying directions."--Journal of Biological Engineering
"we have to admire the editors and the authors for providing a vast amount of useful information that was much needed."--Current Science (journal of the Indian Academy of Sciences)

I am studying a bioengineering Master at EPFL in Switzerland.
I found this book really helpful and giving a broad preview of the spectrum of different professions of the field. This kind of information is kind of hard to get without being able to meet the specialists. This book offer such information.
I also liked very much the parts where the ethics, vision and goals of bioengineering are explored by the writers. It gives a wider perspective of the "why" of bioengineering and its usefulness for society.
To me, this book is a masterpiece and I intend to read it again along my career from time to time.
As said in the title, I recommend it to bioengineers and biotechnologists as a mirror on their field. Such a mirror usually ones gets only after 10 years or so of experiences and encounters.
