Genetics Degrees in USA
The University of California - Los Angeles (UCLA) and Purdue University offer the top genetic engineering programs in the country. Both schools have significant rankings and offer several options for students who want to study genetic engineering. UCLA offers master's and Ph.D. programs in biomedical engineering and Purdue offers undergraduate and graduate programs in this field.
1. University of California - Los Angeles
UCLA 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 graduate biomedical engineering degrees available for students interested in genetic engineering, 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 focus on topics such as biomedical systems, computational cardiology and tissue engineering.
2. Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana
The Princeton Review listed Purdue University as one of the best schools in the Midwest in 2010. Purdue's Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering is accredited by the ABET's Engineering Accreditation Commission and offers an undergraduate internship program. In addition to the undergraduate program in biomedical engineering, students can pursue a master's or doctorate degree in biomedical engineering, as well as a joint integrated M.S./Ph.D. program. Typical courses include energy dispersive x-ray analysis, experimental design, electrophysiology, biomedical imaging and polymer synthesis.
