Results of a Biomedical Engineering Educational Questionnaire, which was sent to 222 engineering schools, are analyzed and a summary directory is presented. Of the schools queried, 121 had degrees or programs in Biomedical Engineering, and 49 schools awarded degrees; 38 awarded Ph.D. degrees, 37 awarded M.S. degrees, and 25 awarded B.S. degrees. Options or programs in Biomedical Engineering were available in 88 schools in which the student received some other engineering degree. No degrees or programs were available at 76 schools, and 25 did not reply. The student enrollment for the 1973 fall semester was 3,769, and the total number of graduates since 1965 was 2,889. Current enrollment by degree is 1,530 for the B.S., 1,306 for the M.S., and 933 for the Ph.D. Degrees awarded since 1965 were 574 for the B.S., 1,424 for the M.S., and 891 for the Ph.D.
