Best Colleges for Biomedical Engineering

The field of biomedical engineering views the human body as being like a machine. Understanding the human body in this manner can lead to breakthroughs in anything from cancer research, genetics, prosthetics, nutrition, and surgical techniques. In order to break into this exciting field you will first have to complete an undergraduate degree in this highly-specialized discipline. This field didn’t even exist a generation ago so post-secondary programs in biomedical engineering are all relatively new and the best of them have top-caliber facilities with the latest technology (3-D printing, lasers, spectrometers, high-level microscopes and related software, etc.). Our list of the Best Colleges for Biomedical Engineering features schools that meet this criteria.
