Undergraduate Engineering Programs Rank High in Latest U.S. News & World Report Best College Rankings

September 9, 2015

Six programs ranked in the top four in their fields with all 10 undergraduate engineering programs ranked seventh or higher in their disciplines

The Georgia Tech College of Engineering continues to be recognized as one of the best in the nation, placing fifth in the annual undergraduate engineering program rankings released by U.S. News & World Report on September 9, 2015. Each of the College of Engineering's 10 undergraduate degrees programs was ranked seventh or higher in their respective fields with six programs ranked fourth or higher in year's edition of America's Best Colleges, published annually by U.S. News.

The George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering saw the biggest jump among CoE's schools, climbing from fifth in the nation to second. Industrial and systems engineering retained its top spot and has been ranked first in the country for a 21st consecutive year. Overall CoE is ranked second among public universities in the United States.

“We are proud to once again be recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the elite engineering institutions in the United States," said Gary S. May, dean and Southern Company Chair in the College of Engineering at Georgia Tech. "The strength of our college is the depth and breadth of our programs, and it is gratifying to see so many of our individual schools ranked among the best in their fields. With 10 highly ranked programs housed within one college we are in a unique position to offer an unparalleled interdisciplinary educational experience to the next generation of the world's engineers. We are in good company in the top 10, but we will not rest on our laurels. Our competition is not sitting still, and neither can we. We must redouble our efforts in the coming year in order to continue attracting the best and brightest students and faculty members in the world."
