Good information drives good decisions. Is college supposed to give the student an experience or prepare the student for a career? Its hard to get good information wading through the college marketing efforts to sell you their school. Making a decision based on marketing hype can easily lead to a wrong decision that is a waste of money and time. Most people can not afford to loose either. The following reports contain the type of information that I would use to help make a good decision investing tens of thousands of dollars on an engineering education. Take advantage of my experience in education, research into the job and graduate statistics, industry needs, and curricula in the Biomedical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering Technology fields.
PLEASE NOTE: These services and products should not and are not meant to be used as your sole or main source for making a decision about a particular program or how to proceed with your particular job hunting campaign. To obtain the full benefit of the information provided it should be reviewed by you and your academic adviser or school counselor against other published factual information.
Parents and prospective BME or BMET students:
BME or BMET graduate rates in 2006-7: You get a table with the number of BME or BMET graduates organized by university and college in 2006 and 2007. This table offers indirect information on the relative sizes of all the BME or BMET programs reporting their graduation rates in one convenient form. The statistics will give parents and potential students an idea which programs are growing. A single year to year comparison is not a definitive indicator of growth but if you see a decline in graduates or a small graduating class in a program you are interested in you should ask the reasons for it before you make a decision. A number of these programs have just been created and are small. You may not want to experience the growing pains of a new program. If not properly supported they can be closed leading to a potentially painful close out process with limited availability of courses, etc. Please indicate e-mail and address and which table you would like when you place the order. Click on the following contact form link and include your name, e-mail and either BMET report or BME report, Contact Form. The report will be sent when you make payment using the same name and e-mail using the PayPal link immediately below. Read the description of the product to insure you get the correct report type. You can also use the Contact Form if you have any questions about the content of the report or payment.
Basic BME or BMET Program Review by the Numbers for 2009:
This review is based on published information which although available is difficult to obtain, ferret out or overlooked. I have included information on graduation rates, faculty publishing and patent activity, accreditation, mission and vision. Each piece of information provides an insight into the current strength of the program by the numbers. I also provide my opinion of what to ask to get a better picture of the programs ability to prepare the graduate for gainful employment. Please indicate your e-mail and address and which school or schools you would like when you place the order. Each school listed will be considered a separate report and is billed as such.
