Missouri S&T is once again one of the top-ranked graduate engineering schools in the nation, according to U.S. News & World Report. The magazine’s annual rankings of graduate schools, released in March, listed Missouri S&T 67th among the nation’s best graduate engineering schools and 39th among public graduate engineering schools. The rankings are included in the U.S. News guidebook’s “premium” online edition at www.usnews.com.
Last year, the guidebook ranked Missouri S&T No. 70.
U.S. News’ online rankings include six Missouri S&T graduate engineering programs, four of which improved upon their 2007 rankings, and one program not ranked last year:
- Aerospace engineering, ranked 39th (28th among public universities)
- Civil engineering, ranked 38th (tied for 24th among public universities)
- Computer engineering, ranked 57th (tied for 33rd among public universities)
- Electrical engineering, ranked 50th (tied for 30th among public universities)
- Materials engineering, ranked 39th (25th among public universities)
- Mechanical engineering, ranked 48th (tied for 29th among public universities)
“We are very pleased with Missouri S&T’s outstanding graduate programs and the national recognition they have received,” says Provost Warren K. Wray. “Having five graduate programs among the nation’s top 50 underscores the recognition that our peers have of our programs.”
U.S. News ranks 12 individual engineering disciplines. Missouri S&T offers 10 of those programs (including the six listed above), plus seven additional graduate degrees in engineering that are not ranked by U.S. News.
