The 20 Smallest Undergraduate Biomedical Engineering Graduating Classes of 2009

There are any number of reasons why these are small graduating classes.  The most likely is that the listed schools have only recently inaugurated their Biomedical Engineering programs.   A number of schools took advantage of the Biomedical Engineering program grants by the now defunct Whitaker Foundation before it ceased to exist in 2005.   The foundation supported the creation of at least 30 programs.  Personally I don’t believe that a small graduating class has anything to do with the quality of a program.  It would be wise for prospective students and their parents to ask about plans for accreditation at these schools if they are new programs.
