Worldwide Recognition of University of Washington Attracts Zachary Stephen Layton

The early years of the University of Washington were rocky; the University closed 3 times. But tenacity paid off. By 1889 300 students were enrolled, and a legislative committee was formed to find a new campus which could accommodate what was becoming a booming educational institution. Internationally, Academic Ranking of World Universities ranked UW 15th among the world’s top 500 universities in 2015, a magnet for high achievers like Zachary Stephen Layton.

Bioinstrumentation Projected to Have Fast Job Growth

The University of Washington School of Medicine is a public facility, and the first of its kind in the contiguous states of Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho. Founded in 1946, the medical education which Zachary Stephen Layton received at University of Washington was from a leader in primary care, family medicine, biomedical research, experimental therapy, clinical treatments, and academic medicine.

Zachary Stephen Layton works as a biomedical engineer in Seattle, Washington, with a specialty in bioinstrumentation. Layton analyzes problems which are experienced in biology and medicine, and works to design solutions which will be positive for patients. The study of bioinstrumentation is highly technical, as doctors and specialists have an ongoing need for innovative electronic and measurement devices to be used for diagnostics and for treatment of diseases and conditions.

Zachary Stephen Layton has worked since his graduation in research and medical laboratory environments.   Biomedical engineers in general may find lucrative employment in manufacturing, universities, hospitals, research facilities of companies and educational and medical institutions, and government regulatory agencies. Layton acquired his Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Washington, which led to his work with bioinstrumentation. Another avenue to the biomedical profession is a bachelor’s degree in an associated field of engineering, and an added graduate degree in biomedical engineering. The employment projections for biomedical engineers are bright, indicating a growth of 27 percent from 2012 to 2022. An older population which is living longer will continue to place growing demands on the medical professions for health care, and with that demand will come the need for ever more sophisticated technology.

Zachary Stephen Layton – Best Kept Secret in the U.S. on Union Bay in Seattle

Consistently ranked among the top 20 universities in the world, Zachary Stephen Layton chose the University of Washington to earn his Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering.   UW is a public research university in Seattle, Washington founded in 1861.  It numbers among the oldest universities of the West Coast of the United States, and prides itself on one of the highest regarded medical schools in the world, which speaks even more highly of Zachary Stephen Layton’s choice of University of Washington for his career studies in biomedical engineering.  UW has three campuses: University District of Seattle, Tacoma and Bothell.

In 1854, Seattle was competing with other Washington Territory settlements for top spot in the rapidly developing West Coast.  Prominent Seattle residents like Daniel Bagley felt that the establishment of a university would enhance the position and prestige of the settlement.  Two fledgling universities were established initially, in Seattle and Lewis County, but no donated land was found for the Lewis County proposal, so the legislature settled on Seattle for the location in 1858.  Arthur and Mary Denny donated eight acres in 1861, with Edward Lander and Charlie and Mary Terry donating 2 more acres on Denny’s Knoll.  The University of Washington which Zachary Stephen Layton came to know so well was actually organized by the plans used for the 1909 Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition, which was built on the undeveloped campus land of the time.   With the end of World War II, the G. I. Bill was an important source of growth for UW, spurring the opening of the medical school in 1946.  The University of Washington Medical Center is ranked today, by U.S. News and World Report, as one of the top ten hospitals in the U.S.
