The Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory is ranked #2 (tied with UC San Diego) in U.S. News & World Report’s latest ranking of the nation’s top graduate biomedical engineering programs for 2018-2019. The Coulter Department is an exceptional and thriving public-private partnership between Emory University’s School of Medicine and Georgia Tech’s College of Engineering.


“Our ranking reflects the continued expansion of our world-class faculty at both Emory and Georgia Tech, dramatic growth in research funding, and enhanced training opportunities for our graduate students,” said Susan Margulies, chair of the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering.


For the seventh consecutive year, all 11 of Georgia Tech’s graduate engineering programs are ranked in the top 10 in their fields in the 2019 U.S. News & World Report graduate rankings.


Overall the Georgia Tech College of Engineering’s graduate programs are ranked eighth in the country and third among public colleges.


On a program level, the College of Engineering’s industrial and systems engineering program is ranked first in the country for the 28th consecutive year. Biomedical engineering and environmental engineering each rose two spots from last year’s rankings to second and fifth place respectively, while computer engineering, electrical engineering, materials science and engineering, and mechanical engineering all rose one spot with computer engineering receiving a fourth overall ranking—its best ever.


"The faculty, staff and graduate students should be proud of the reputation and accomplishments of our eight engineering schools and the College as a whole," said Steve McLaughlin, dean of the College of Engineering. "With all Georgia Tech graduate engineering programs placed in the top ten nationally, it is through their hard work that we continue to be recognized as one of the premier engineering colleges in the Nation. We are gratified that our peers recognize the efforts we make toward providing an exemplary graduate school environment and exceptional levels of research productivity.”
