September 9, 2014

Georgia Tech’s engineering college has climbed to fourth in the annual undergraduate engineering program rankings released by U.S. News & World Report on September 9, 2014.

The College of Engineering (CoE) is tied with Caltech among bachelor’s programs at universities that offer doctoral degrees, as reported in the annual U.S. News publication called America’s Best Colleges. All of the programs offered by CoE, the nation’s largest and most diverse engineering college, placed among the top eight of their respective areas.

The Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering is again No. 1 among similar schools, while Tech’s programs in aerospace, biomedical, civil, environmental and mechanical engineering are all ranked in the top five in the nation in their disciplines. The college is the second-ranked public engineering institution in the country behind the University of California—Berkeley.

“It is gratifying to know that U.S. News & World Report recognizes Georgia Tech’s excellence in undergraduate engineering education, “said Gary S. May, dean of engineering at Georgia Tech. “This shows we are doing an outstanding job at producing a high level of academic quality within the college. The ranking is a reflection of the efforts of our faculty, staff and students whose hard work and commitment to excellence truly make us a world-class technological university.”
