The Johns Hopkins Department of Biomedical Engineering has once again been named the nation’s top undergraduate program in BME by U.S. News & World Report, the longest-running and most widely cited assessment of U.S. colleges and universities. Earlier this year, the department’s graduate program was also ranked No. 1 in the nation for best graduate programs in biomedical engineering.

Hopkins BME has been setting the bar for biomedical engineering education and research for more than 50 years, and it continues to lead the way through a curriculum that combines classroom instruction with opportunities for hands-on learning. Through project-based courses, research experiences, design projects, clinical exposure, and more, students in the program work with leading Johns Hopkins physicians and scientists to solve real-world engineering problems that improve human health.

“What continues to distinguish the JHU Department of Biomedical Engineering as the top undergraduate program is the caliber, diversity, and ingenuity of our students and faculty,” said Eileen Haase, associate director of the BME undergraduate program. “The past year has been difficult for all academia, and our ranking is a testament to the department’s effort in prioritizing student wellbeing and success.”

Johns Hopkins University has again been recognized as one of the nation’s top universities in the annual USNWR’s Best Colleges Rankings, earning the No. 9 spot for the second year in a row. JHU shares this spot with the California Institute of Technology, Duke, and Northwestern. Read more on the Hub.
