Top Ten Schools for Biomechanical Engineering

[maxbutton id=”1″]
Choosing a school can be an overwhelming experience, but this list makes it less so. The criteria used for rating the schools in this list was extensive and included such things as student SAT scores, faculty pay rates, graduation and job placement rates, spending per student rates, as well as the views of competitors and neutral professionals. The following is a list of the top ten schools, in order, for biomechanical engineering:

1. John Hopkins University (Whiting): This University rated #1 for several reasons. To begin, it has an amazing student ration–4.8 students: 1 teacher. In addition, there are vast opportunities for research. Students have access to the labs and other research resources of any of the universities that partner with John Hopkins, which expands student opportunity for experience and growth exponentially.

2. Georgia Institute of Technology: The engineering program in this school is extensive and provides an immense amount of choices for specialization. There are over 20 engineering programs to be explored and combined in majors and minors. Combining such things as biomechanical engineering with other mechanical engineering increases student post-graduation prospects incredibly.

3. University of California–San Diego (Jacobs): This University provides many opportunities for graduate and combined graduate programs. It offers a Master of Science Degree, Master of Engineering Degree, and Ph.D. programs. In addition, it offers joint M.D./M.S and M.D./Ph.D. programs. This is a rare opportunity for ambitious students.
