The Power of Biomedical Engineering
Michael Gibbons, ASEE (2011)
Biomedical engineering sustained the
largest growth of any discipline at each
degree level over the past
decade. It now ranks sixth among 21
engineering fields tracked by ASEE in
bachelor’s and doctoral degrees
granted and ninth in master’s degrees.
The Power of Biomedical Engineering
Michael Gibbons, ASEE (2011)
Enrollment trends indicate the discipline
will continue to outpace
engineering degree growth overall,
which during the decade stood at 17
percent for bachelor’s, 38 percent
for master’s, and 51 percent for
doctorates. Reported biomedical
research expenditures have grown
350% since 2000.
