I am Kwitegetse Nemeye and I was graduaded in biomedical engineering (orientation biomechanics and instrumentation) by the Ecole Polytechnique de Bruxelles (Université Libre de Bruxelles) in 2012.
I worked as a research assistant in a biomechanics laboratory in Montreal. I was in charge of a project biding the laboratory and two firms and I had to develop softwares and graphical interfaces for orthopedists and orthesists. During this experience I developped programming skills mostly in software design. More, as the principal manager of this project, I had to make sure than the project was concluded and this allowed me to develop other skills like the management of priorities and planning. However, I already started to develop these skills during my study in engineering (designing medical device or medical software's for example). .
At the moment, I am not working in the life science field and I realize that I miss it. The main reason is that working in life science area makes me feel more useful for the society. I am certain that I will be able to be completely fulfilled, happier and then more efficient in my work.
Then I am looking for a new opportunity to increase my knowledges and to grow as a civil biomedical engineer.
