SUMMARY

Choosing to study Bioengineering and Biomedical Engineering is a valuable choice and typically a mandatory first step for students aspiring to enter a career as a biomedical engineering technician, a field service biologist, or a biomedical equipment technician. In fact, nationally, bioengineering and biomedical engineering is pretty common ranking as the 63rd most popular degree. Last academic year, there were 7,921 bioengineering and biomedical engineering graduates. In-state tuition for bioengineering and biomedical engineering at private schools is, on average, 4.1 times more expensive than their public peers.

There are 171 universities which offer bioengineering and biomedical engineering. 171 institutions is on par with other degrees offered in the United States. If you're hoping to surround yourself with other bioengineering and biomedical engineering majors, consider colleges in California which have the most undergraduates admitted to bioengineering and biomedical engineering annually. Zooming out, the top region to major in bioengineering and biomedical engineering is in the Southeast region with Georgia Institute of Technology-Main Campus, North Carolina State University at Raleigh, and Clemson University best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick of the best conference to study bioengineering and biomedical engineering is the Atlantic Coast Conference with Georgia Institute of Technology-Main Campus, North Carolina State University at Raleigh, and Clemson University representing the conference. On that topic, our selection for the best university for bioengineering and biomedical engineering is Massachusetts Institute of Technology. You might also want to check out our list of the best colleges.

The 'best' school does not mean it is the best school for every student. There are lots more facets to consider when selecting institution. Stuff like campus amenities, transportation services, and food would modify your feelings on where to go to college. At authority.org, we examined the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you are interested in which bioengineering and biomedical engineering university has the top college campus, the answer is Stanford University. If, for example, you are mostly interested in which school has the best campus, we have an entire page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through student reviews, government databases, professor reviews, and more in order to compare every major in an unbiased and informative way. You can explore our comprehensive list for the schools with the best student life here and from that list, our pick for the university with the best student life for bioengineering and biomedical engineering is Cornell University. Are you curious why? Keep reading to learn more about Authority's top recommendations. Many of our picks just might surprise you.

If price is a significant deciding factor in your choice of where you attend college, you might consider avoiding Columbia University in the City of New York. Columbia University in the City of New York appears to be the most expensive university for bioengineering and biomedical engineering, at least for out of state enrollment. We do have a list of the most expensive colleges that might put the price tag of Columbia University in the City of New York into perspective. For more context, you could be interested to know that bioengineering and biomedical engineering is the 47th most expensive program in the nation, with an average cost of $49,400. To zoom out a little, the most expensive state for bioengineering and biomedical engineering in the nation is Maryland demonstrated with a tuition of $55,350 at the main college in the state Johns Hopkins University. Even more broadly, the most expensive region for bioengineering and biomedical engineering is the New England region which is best demonstrated with Tufts University with a cost of $57,324, Dartmouth College with a cost of $55,605, and Brown University with a cost of $57,112.

Our cheapest region for bioengineering and biomedical engineering is the Rocky Mountains region which is represented by University of Colorado Denver/Anschutz Medical Campus with a cost of $24,408, Montana State University with a cost of $23,890, and University of Utah with a cost of $26,017. In better news, the most affordable university for bioengineering and biomedical engineering is Georgia Institute of Technology-Main Campus. Our comprehensive list of the most affordable universities can be found here.

In-state learners can expect to pay about $12,100 for a degree in bioengineering and biomedical engineering. The price inflates by a lot to an average of $30,500 for an out-of-state public-school student. Our selection for the college representing the best value for bioengineering and biomedical engineering: Massachusetts Institute of Technology. On this page you will find our comprehensive list for the schools we believe to be the best value in general. That being said, this section is based on the assumption that you are an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when it comes to in-state tuition, but as we do not know what state(s) you might qualify for in-state tuition, we are approaching this discussion through out-of-state tuition costs.

Earnings for bioengineering and biomedical engineering students range widely, but within two years graduation students will typically make around $51,300. There is a lot of variation in pay; top positions can experience pay up to $89,400. Straight out of school, the lowest end jobs within the bioengineering and biomedical engineering field earn $29,000, which is an alright wage. The top earning grads for bioengineering and biomedical engineering come from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and if you are looking for universities with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The overall diversity of bioengineering and biomedical engineering stands pretty high, falling within the 90th percentile of majors nationally. The university with the highest composite diversity for bioengineering and biomedical engineering is Massachusetts Institute of Technology and here you can find our comprehensive list for the universities which have the most diversity. The financial diversity of the Bioengineering and Biomedical Engineering major ranks only within the 43rd percentile of all majors. Racial diversity is actually above financial diversity, ranking in the 84th percentile. White collegians make up the largest share, 49%, of those studying bioengineering and biomedical engineering. Additionally, 54% of undergraduates seeking a bioengineering and biomedical engineering degree are men.

The median rating of bioengineering and biomedical engineering professors is 4.2 stars, a score which is 5% higher than the average score across every major; which is a good ranking. If you want the most popular bioengineering and biomedical engineering professor in the country, look no further than Alex Dubov at Loma Linda University. It may be shocking, but the best ranked bioengineering and biomedical engineering instructors according to students are found at Boise State University. As we including information beyond simply rankings it becomes clear that the college with the best professors for bioengineering and biomedical engineering is Massachusetts Institute of Technology. One can find more detail on our ever evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, along with many of the best examples of instructors in the country.

Finally, the most difficult college to get into for bioengineering and biomedical engineering is Stanford University. While we are unsure why you would be interested, we do have a comprehensive list of the hardest colleges to get into. Although, here at Authority we hope you believe that considering the higher education world with context primarily formed from superlatives can create issues. We at Authority encourage you to read our other pages on different colleges and read a few of our helpful background articles on important things to think about as your college search continues.
