Top 20 Schools With Largest B.S. Biomedical Engineering Graduating Classes in 2011

Top twenty schools which offer undergraduate Biomedical Engineering (BME) degrees by total BME graduating class size for each school. These schools represent 2556 graduates. They represent about 63 percent of the total number of B.S. BME graduates for 2011. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects approximately 1300 new Biomedical Engineering jobs every year between 2008 and 2018. There is a significant mismatch between the actual number of total number of BME graduates (B.S., M.S., and Ph.D.) and the projected number of jobs (see link at bottom of table below).   This is particularly true for this field the additional engineering depth obtained in the higher degrees is very attractive to the medical device and drug industries.  Anyone interested in these programs should note that the size of a departments graduating class does not necessarily indicate a high level of quality when it comes to preparing a student for a corporate career.
