Again and again and again.

The School of Aeronautics and Astronautics continues to be one of the highest ranked undergraduate aerospace engineering programs by U.S. News & World Report. AAE is No. 4 in the 2022 rankings released Monday for best undergraduate aerospace/aeronautical/astronautical engineering programs that offer a doctorate.

It ties for the School’s highest ranking in USNWR’s list, as AAE last was ranked No. 4 two years ago. The School has been in the top 6 since the 2005 list.

“Being the No. 4 undergraduate aerospace engineering program in U.S. News and World Report’s reputation-based ranking is a great recognition of the job our faculty and staff do to provide educational experiences to our students, and it is a great recognition of the success our students have after graduating from Purdue’s School of Aeronautics and Astronautics,” said William Crossley, J. William Uhrig and Anastasia Vournas Head of Aeronautics and Astronautics.

Purdue’s College of Engineering was ranked No. 10. Undergraduate engineering program rankings are based solely on peer assessment surveys of deans and senior faculty members at engineering programs, the USNWR website said. To appear on an undergraduate engineering survey, a school must have an undergraduate engineering program accredited by ABET.
