Top Genetic Engineering Schools: List of Best Programs
Genetic engineering is not offered as a major at most schools; however, many programs in biomedical engineering, which is closely related and focuses on the use of engineering principles and techniques in the field of medicine, are available across the country. Read on to learn more about some of the schools that offer great undergraduate and graduate degree programs in this field.
Top Genetic Engineering Schools
1. University of California-Los Angeles
The University of California-Los Angeles (UCLA) was established in 1919 and was ranked 25th on the U.S. News and World Report's 2011 list of best colleges nationwide. This quarter-based school system has eight biomedical engineering degrees available for students interested in genetic engineering at the graduate level, including the Master of Science (M.S.) in Molecular and Cellular Bioengineering and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Biosystem Science and Engineering, as well as biomedical engineering fellowships. Classes in the available graduate degree programs focus on topics such as biomedical systems, computational cardiology and tissue engineering.
