WVU Tech is once again listed on the top 100 undergraduate engineering programs on U.S. News and World Report’s annual college rankings list. Released today, the rankings list considers institutions, including military and private schools, that offer only bachelor’s or master’s degrees in engineering. The new rankings show that WVU Tech’s program is ranked #25 (tie) in the United States among public institutions.
“We’re beyond proud to find recognition among such well-known peer institutions. We know that this recognition comes from our students, graduates and faculty, who are out there doing quality work on a national level and living up to the standards we set for them here,” said Dr. Zeljko “Z” Torbica, dean of the Leonard C. Nelson College of Engineering and Sciences at WVU Tech.
The ranking is another high mark in the college’s push for national recognition as a top-quality engineering school. WVU Tech’s engineering faculty spend time outside the classroom promoting research in their fields. As part of that push, two members of the college were recently named Golden Bear Scholars in the university’s newest initiative to increase faculty engagement in research, scholarship and creativity.
The university has also worked in recent years to increase the number of ABET-accredited programs within the college. With the addition of computer science to that list in 2015, the Leonard C. Nelson College of Engineering and Sciences now offers nine ABET-accredited engineering, engineering technology and computer science degree programs.
