Masters in Engineering School Rankings

Masters of Engineering School Rankings

The hierarchy for engineering programs among the universities is generally established by the US News and World Report annual survey of colleges, universities and graduate schools. Newsweek and to some degree, Forbes Magazine conduct similar surveys but the most often quoted source is the traditional review conducted by US News. Most universities today have consolidated their engineering schools, with the exception of degrees in computer engineering and some of the esoteric new options such as financial engineering. Consolidation was not always the standard collegiate structure however and some schools still have strong programs in economic or industrial areas common to the region. The University of West Virginia and the University of Kentucky both have strong mining engineeringprograms. University of Texas features petroleum and chemical engineering, while schools in Indiana and Michigan have structural engineering and industrial engineering programs that grew up with the automotive and steel industries.
