I think a survey of companies that make medical electronics devices would reveal a larger number of EEs than BMEs on the payroll. The issue for you might come down to what is your primary interest? If you want to help design the product, or the chip(s) at the heart of the product, then you sound like an EE to me. If biology & medicine are more your strength, and you don't see yourself as becoming a circuit designer, than BME is a better choice.

I can't say what is "Good enough" but what is required. An EE degree definitely helps you there and some experience working in the Bio-Med field will get you there.

If your goal is to work developing medical devices than the Biomedical Engineering degree is a good choice. It contains electrical engineering courses as well as other engineering courses specific to development of devices for use with the human body.

My dream is to help develop the next generation of medical electronics. Which degree would better qualify me to do this: Electrical or Biomedical Engineering? I am a students at Columbia University in case that's relevent. Thanks in advance for your replies.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
