Ranks for engineering programs as ranked by recruiters from the Wall Street Journal (note these are generic rankings–but they are by recruiters, which is a key distinction vs. having a peer based ranking–ie other departments ranking you) Ideally, I would want a school that perhaps did well on both.:
1. Georgia Tech
2. Purdue (Indiana)
3. University of Maryland
4. University of Illinois-Champlaign
5. Virginia Tech
6. University of Michigan
7. Cornell University (Ithaca, NY)
8. MIT (Cambridge, MA)

14. Iowa State University
15. North Carolina State University
16. Texas A & M
17. Clemson
18. Cal Tech
19. UCLA
20. University of Wisconsin
21. Carnegie Mellon
22. RPI
23. West Virginia University
24. Arizona State University
25. Texas Tech University

For graduate education for biomedical engineering straight from US News:
1. John Hopkins (Baltimore MD)
