Bioengineering is one of the youngest of the engineering sub-disciplines. Getting into a top-rated biomedical engineering graduate program can be very difficult. Professors and advisers in your bachelor's degree program can also be a valuable source of information about graduate programs. Ratings for the top biomedical engineering schools in the United States are ranked based on a process of peer review by college deans and senior faculty.
