Georgia Tech’s School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering rose to 3rd in the nation for its undergraduate program in the latest rankings of U.S. News & World Report. Last year, the school was ranked 4th.

Georgia Tech was tied for 4th overall for its undergraduate engineering program, with all of its engineering specialties ranked in the Top 6.

“This is indeed a reflection of the strong and sustained efforts demonstrated by our engineering chairs, faculty, staff and students,” said Steven W. McLaughlin, incoming dean of engineering at Georgia Tech. ”We continue to strive to provide the best engineering education possible, and create an environment where today’s students are developed as tomorrow’s thinkers, leaders, and creators. While rankings do not tell the whole story regarding a campus or program, they do demonstrate the commitment that each of the individual Schools have toward our students and to excellence in education and research.”

Program scores are based on surveys of deans and faculty members at other universities. The U.S. News rankings can carry heavy influence among current undergraduates, professors, prospective students, peer institutions, and the media.
