Higher ranking schools have received that rank as they are seen as offering high quality courses, producing graduates of an excellent calibre which is recognised by potential employers. It gives you a head start in the career market, allowing you to network with prestigious colleagues within the field you are hoping to work.

Top chemical engineering schools allow you to study subjects such as chemistry, biology, maths and physics. Different programs may place a higher emphasis on a particular subject. Chemical engineers are involved with enhancing safety and are involved in diverse areas such as product development, DNA analysis and medical research.

The top ten schools as identified by a U.S. News Survey include Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of California-Berkeley, Stanford University, University of Minnesota, California Institute of Technology, Georgia institute of Technology, Princeton University, University of Wisconsin, University of Texas and the University of Delaware. What all these Universities have in common is that they attract generous funds for research, which means that there is plenty of scope to be involved in the newest research methods and studies.

When Universities attract high research grants they also attract eminent researchers to come and work for them which gives you the opportunity to be taught by the brightest and the best within their field. Both undergraduate and graduate programs are available at these Universities.

Biomedical engineering schools allow you to study biology, engineering and biomedical principles. Biomedical engineers may be involved in stem cell research, the human genome, medical devices and mapping of the human genome, allowing you to study a wide range of diagnostic, treatment and innovative technologies to enhance peoples life’s.
