The Johns Hopkins biomedical engineering programs have, once again, been named No. 1 in the country according to the annual U.S. News and World Report rankings of the “Best Graduate Schools.” Hopkins BME shares the top spot with the Georgia Institute of Technology.
The U.S. News rankings gives each school an average rating based on a survey of academics at peer institutions. Hopkins BME has been ranked No. 1 for biomedical engineering since 1992, when U.S. News began ranking specialty disciplines.
“The Hopkins BME community is the ‘secret sauce’ that makes our program so great,” said Michael I. Miller, the Bessie Darling Massey Professor and Director of Biomedical Engineering at Johns Hopkins. “Our students and faculty are engineering the future of medicine through their creativity, passion, and innovation. Their work will drive the breakthrough discoveries that will improve human health for generations to come.”
Positioned within the School of Engineering and the School of Medicine, the Hopkins BME graduate program provides students with opportunities to engage with some of the best clinical and basic research scientists in the world. Students specialize in one of seven modern disciplines ranging from biomedical data science to immunoengineering, applying engineering approaches to understand and improve human health.
Hopkins BME also holds the No. 1 spot in the U.S. News rankings of the best Undergraduate Biomedical Engineering Programs. Additionally, several other graduate programs within Johns Hopkins University have ranked among the nation’s best, including nursing, public health, and education.
