“These gains are the result of the hard work of our faculty and graduate students, as well as strong college-wide leadership and recruiting efforts over the past several years,” notes Sanjay Raman, dean of the College of Engineering.

The published rankings are based on reputational surveys of deans and industry, as well as statistical indicators that assess the strength and quality of a school’s research, students, and faculty.  Find out more about how U.S. News ranks its graduate engineering programs here.
