Does anyone know the latest US News Rankings for Biomedical Engineering programs? I would appreciate it if you can post the top 50 here. I am looking for Rutgers University-New Brunswick in particular. Thanks a lot.

    Thanks alot, are these the 2006 US News Rankings?
  • im_blueim_blue Registered User Posts: 2,142 Senior Member
    These are the 2007 US News graduate rankings.
  • AbN610AbN610 Registered User Posts: 142 Junior Member
    Would you happen to know the latest undergraduate rankings for Biomedical Engineering? What is Rutgers rank on the undergraduate rankings?
  • fruitloops89fruitloops89 Registered User Posts: 68 Junior Member
    Yea I'm also interested in the ranking of UNDERgrad. BME rankings. Does anyone know?
  • GandhijiGandhiji Registered User Posts: 713 Member
    I too would like to know
  • mjk88mjk88 Registered User Posts: 22 New Member
    Can somebody please comment on some of the undergraduate programs in bio or biomed engineering at some of these schools. I am particularly interested in Duke, Stanford, UPenn, Cornell, and Wash U. I would also like to know how strong their other engineering areas are in case i hate BME or BioE and want to study EE or ME for example.
  • pippyvanpippyvan Registered User Posts: 37 Junior Member
    a lot of universities do not have undergrad BME as a major. Rather, they have BME as a minor or concentration. So keep that in mind if you dont' see your school in the undergrad rankings
  • SlorgSlorg Registered User Posts: 2,009 Senior Member
    For undergrad, I think JHU is #1, and UCSD and Duke are #2 and #3.
  • tivesrxtivesrx Registered User Posts: 651 Member
    How did you find out 2007 already. It doesnt come out till the 18th
  • superwizardsuperwizard Registered User Posts: 1,251 Senior Member
    not the graduate rankings only the undergrad. The grad ones are out already.
  • ScarletPrideScarletPride Registered User Posts: 14 New Member
    OVERALL UNDERGRADUATE RANKING - Rutgers from what I've recently heard did not change position on the US News ranking from 2006 to 2007. It remains 60. However, do keep in mind that many of the programs at Rutgers such as Philosophy, History, Political Science, Biological Sciences, Physical Sciences etc etc are all ranked very high even in comparison to many "higher ranked" schools. Unfortunately, US News bases 25 perent of their "rankings" on peer review and another percentage on "endowment". Explains part of the reason why some of the top schools never ever change.

    Does anyone have access to the online premium rankings? Could someone post the full top 10 list for 2007 biomedical engineering rankings? Thank you very much!
