2017 graduate program rankings from U.S. News & World Report released- Georgia Tech third among public engineering schools, seventh in the nation overall

Four of Georgia Tech’s engineering graduate programs rose in this year’s U.S. News & World Report graduate rankings of national universities granting doctoral degrees and industrial engineering maintained its position atop the industrial/manufacturing/systems engineering category for a 26th consecutive year.
“With three programs ranked second or higher and all 11 in the top eight in their fields, Georgia Tech continues to be an excellent option for graduate students looking for a world-class engineering education.” said Gary S. May, dean of the College of Engineering.  “This recognition is a testament to our hard-working faculty who are committed to providing their students with outstanding educational and research opportunities."
Aerospace engineering jumped from fifth in the nation to second, chemical and biomolecular engineering moved to eighth from ninth, civil engineering rose from fifth to fourth, and computer engineering moved up one spot from seventh to sixth.
As in the last four rankings, all of the College of Engineering’s specialties were ranked in the top 10 in their respective fields, making Georgia Tech the only institution in the nation to garner top 10 rankings for all of its engineering graduate programs in five straight years.
