ISyE Leads 2010 U.S. News Graduate Rankings

Primary tabs

The H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE) has maintained its position as the number one graduate program for industrial/manufacturing engineering for the nineteenth year in a row, according to U.S. & News World Report.

Each year, the publication collects data from educational institutions and ranks the nation's top programs in each discipline using indicators such as program size, external reputation, student selectivity, faculty honors, and research activity. 2010 marks the nineteenth consecutive year that the Stewart School has ranked as the foremost program of its kind in the nation.

Chelsea C. White III, ISyE School Chair, is pleased to see the School continue to receive this prestigious ranking, "ISyE continues to excel in the U. S. News & World Report rankings, reflecting a lot of hard work on the part of the faculty and staff this past year and in years past. I take pride in the fact that our effort and dedication to excellence in education and research are being recognized."

Released late last month, the report honored Georgia Tech's College of Engineering as the nation's fourth-ranked graduate program overall for engineering. Ten of the eleven programs within the College of Engineering placed among the top 10 in their respective disciplines. In addition to housing the nation's top industrial engineering program, Georgia Tech was also recognized for its biomedical (2nd), aerospace (4th), environmental (5th), civil (6th), electrical (6th), mechanical (6th), computer (7th), nuclear (8th), and materials science (8th) engineering programs.

Particularly of note, Georgia Tech's environmental, mechanical, and nuclear engineering programs all rose in the rankings by one place from 2009 to 2010. Additionally, the College of Management ascended seven spots to No. 22 and is now tied with Emory University as U.S. News's top-ranked MBA program within the state of Georgia.
