College Ranks 12th Overall in Latest U.S. News Survey

The latest U.S. News and World Report ranking of U.S. engineering graduate programs places the college 12th overall.

The rankings are based on five measures of academic quality: faculty resources, research activity, student selectivity, and two measures of institutional reputation achieved by querying engineering deans and practicing engineers who are members of the National Academy of Engineering.

The college also placed highly in two specialty areas. Both the chemical engineering graduate program and the nuclear engineering program were ranked fifth in their respective specialties.
