List of Schools Offering Accredited Biomedical Engineering Programs
Links to 50 U.S. universities and colleges with accredited Biomedical Engineering (Bioengineering) programs. Although ABET, Inc. is asking programs to focus on student outcomes an accredited program does not necessarily prepare its graduates well for corporate careers. The prospective student would be well advised to ask for job statistics from the biomedical engineering program they are interested in to establish what percentage of the B.S. graduates pursuing jobs in the medical device or pharmaceutical industry are getting them within 6 months of graduation. Every ABET accredited program should have statistics of this type to share. If they don’t they have not established an important feedback mechanism to check on the success of their graduates. This is particularly galling since feedback is an extremely important part of developing any quality product not to mention electronic devices and programs.
