Biomedical Engineering at Hopkins Remains #1 in U.S. News “Best Graduate School” rankings

March 16, 2016

GILMAN_spring_grass900x600In the 2017 edition of U.S. News and World Report’s ranking of graduate engineering programs, Biomedical Engineering at Johns Hopkins remains first in the nation— a position the department has held since 1990 when the magazine began ranking the discipline.

“We’re gratified that we continue to be highly regarded by our peers,” said Ed Schlesinger, dean of the School of Engineering. He said the consistent No. 1 rating “reflects the deep integration through the bioengineering department between engineering and medicine.”

The Whiting School overall jumped a few spots, from a tie for 25th to tied for 21st. Dean Ed Schlesinger says he believes the improvement in part reflects a greater emphasis in the field generally on the convergence of engineering, medicine, and biological science, a development that plays to Hopkins’ strength.
