The U.S. News & World Report released their 2014 rankings, including the lists for best engineering graduate schools.

The graduate engineering program at Georgia Tech is currently tied with Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Illinois – Urbana-Champaign for fifth. 

Within the individual engineering specialties, chemical engineering at Georgia Tech, ranked No. 10, remains in the top 10 graduate programs nationwide. The rest of the top 10 are as follows:

     1. Massachusetts Institute of Technology
     2. California Institute of Technology
     3. University of California – Berkeley
     4. Tie: University of Minnesota – Twin Cities and Stanford University
     6. Tie: University of Wisconsin – Madison, University of Texas – Austin, Princeton University
     9. University of California – Santa Barbara 

All 11 of Georgia Tech’s engineering programs ranked within the top 10 of their specialties—demonstrating the overall strength of Georgia Tech’s College of Engineering. The list includes industrial engineering (No. 1), biomedical and bioengineering (No. 2), civil (No. 4), aerospace (No. 5), electrical (No. 5), environmental (No. 5) computer (No. 5), mechanical (No. 5), materials (No. 9), chemical (No. 10) and nuclear (No. 10).

Georgia Tech’s undergraduate engineering program is currently tied for fifth with the University of Illinois – Urbana-Champaign.

To determine rankings for graduate engineering programs, data from nearly 200 engineering programs is collected and calculated. The overall ranks are based on a peer assessment score, recruiter assessment score, mean GRE quantitative scores, acceptance rate, student-faculty ratio, percent of faculty in the National Academy of Engineering, doctoral degrees awarded, total research expenditures, and average research expenditures per faculty member. Individual specialty rankings are based solely on peer assessments from department heads in each area.
