Higher Education Articles November 28, 2012

Biomechanical engineering started through the combination of biological and mechanical. Biomedical engineering and biomechanical engineering are associated with each other. This article is for students who considered enrolling into one of the best schools in biomechanical engineering. Here, we listed some of the top biomechanical engineering schools and colleges in the United States.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) – Cambridge, Massachusetts

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology began operating in 1865. MIT comprised of five schools and a college, one being the School of Engineering. MIT has established an enviable tradition of being one of the leading academic institutions in the United States (source: U.S. News and World Report). In 2011, it ranked sixth on the list of top engineering universities that offered bachelor degree programs in bioengineering or biomedical specialties. Students aiming for a degree in either mechanical engineering or biological engineering can choose to join a biomechanical engineering program to earn a graduate or undergraduate degree.
