The joint Emory University-Georgia Institute of Technology biomedical engineering program continues to offer one of the best graduate educations in the nation, according to new rankings from U.S. News and World Report released March 30.
The program is No. 2 on the 2022 list of top graduate degrees.
“I am gratified our efforts continue to be recognized by our peers,” said Susan Margulies, the Wallace H. Coulter Chair of the Department. “This challenging year has reinforced what a special place Coulter BME is, and I am incredibly proud of the work our students, faculty, and staff have done through it all to continue our mission of improving people’s health.”
The updated rankings mark the 14th time in the last 18 years that the master’s and Ph.D. programs in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering have earned the second spot on the list. The consistently high ranking speaks to the Department’s recognized tradition of excellence, innovation and impact since its inception.
“We work every day to educate the next generation of pioneering biomedical engineers and engage in fundamental and translational research at the interface of engineering and medicine,” Margulies said. “Our talented students go on to pursue a wide range of career paths, including academia, industry, entrepreneurial ventures, and government. Their success and accomplishments as alumni help carry the story of our program far beyond Atlanta.”
The Coulter Department joins every other graduate program in the Georgia Tech College of Engineering among the top seven in their respective disciplines on the 2022 Best Graduate Programs lists. The College overall is No. 8.
"The graduate rankings released today are a testament to the high standards of education, innovation and research happening at the College, which have been recognized by our peers,” said Raheem Beyah, engineering dean and Southern Company Chair. “We should be especially proud of this given the many challenges over the past year with the pandemic. Through it all, our faculty, students and staff have remained resilient, making the College what it is today."
