1 Developing Bioengineering Educational & Research Opportunities @NC A&T Harvey Borovetz

2 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)

3 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. The Power of Biomedical Engineering Michael Gibbons, ASEE (2011)
