Michigan Tech Undergraduate Engineering Rises in US News Rankings
by Jennifer Donovan, director, public relations
In the latest US News and World Report "Best Colleges" rankings released today, Michigan Tech's undergraduate engineering programs ranked 64th in the nation among schools offering doctoral degrees, up two places from last year.
Among public universities, Tech's undergraduate programs in all disciplines placed 58th nationwide, and among national universities, Tech's undergraduate education placed solidly in what the magazine calls its first tier, ranking 120th of 199 first-tier universities. US News defines a national university as one that offers a full range of undergraduate majors as well as master's and PhD programs, and emphasizes faculty research.
Michigan Tech was also listed as an "A-plus School for B Students." The category lists top-ranked universities that consistently consider and admit promising students whose high school grade point average is below an A.
