The Top 20 Schools With Largest B.S. Biomedical Engineering Graduating Classes for 2008

Top 20 schools which offer B.S. Biomedical Engineering degrees by graduating class size.  These schools represent 1650 graduates.  They represent about half the total number of B.S. BME graduates for 2008.  The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects approximately 1500 new Biomedical Engineering jobs every year between 2008 and 2018.   As can be seen there is a significant mismatch  between the actual number of graduates and the projected number of jobs.  Anyone interested in these programs should note that the size of a department does not necessarily indicate a high level of quality when it comes to preparing a student for a corporate  career.
