U.S. News and World Report has released its 2006 rankings of U.S. graduate programs.

The College of Engineering's overall graduate education program was tied for 15th among schools offering a doctoral degree.

The nuclear engineering graduate program tied for second.

Decorative initial cap This spring, our American Nuclear Society (ANS) student chapter received the Most Outstanding Student Organization Award from the UW-Madison Student Organization Office and Student Leadership Program for its work, including significant outreach activities. (ANS members spoke this year to more than 2,000 students at schools around the state.) Also, the members of approximately 50 College of Engineering student organizations recently voted the American Nuclear Society the college’s best student organization. Assistant Professor Paul Wilson advises the group.

Undergraduates Tracy Radel, Michael Priaulx and Thomas Rickmeyer received $2,000 scholarships from the American Nuclear Society (ANS). The trio is among 27 recipients nationwide of ANS undergraduate scholarships. Of 21 awarded nationally, two $3,000 graduate scholarships went to UW-Madison engineering physics students; the recipients of those scholarships are grad students Kent Wardle and Julie Tucker.

Junior Kyle Oliver took second place and $2,000 in the 2005 Steuber Writing Prize competition with his story, “Influence and Relations: Milne and Poincare on Methods and Mathematics.” Sponsored by UW-Madison alumnus William Steuber, the annual competition honors the best writing by engineering undergraduate students.
