The 2023-24 U.S. News & World Report national graduate school rankings, released Tuesday (April 25), put Purdue University’s Elmore Family School of Electrical Engineering in the top 10 once again Tuesday (April 25). Electrical Engineering is ranked 8, while Computer Engineering came in at 10.

Purdue’s College of Engineering is at No. 4 out of 220 for the third consecutive year, with the nation’s top five as MIT; Stanford; the University of California, Berkeley; Purdue; and Georgia Institute of Technology.

Purdue’s newest initiative, Purdue Computes, builds on this momentum to help elevate all of Computing at Purdue into the top 10. In addition to bringing together Computer Science and Computer Engineering, it represents an immediate $50 million investment to expand Purdue’s semiconductor facilities,and launches an Institute of Physical AI at Purdue, focusing on the areas of computing ‘where atoms meet bytes,’ which are crucial for the nation as well as the state of Indiana.

“These rankings reflect the success of our collective research enterprise across Purdue – from record research expenditures, graduate student selectivity and numbers, along with investments in major centers,” said Arvind Raman, the John A. Edwardson Dean of the College of Engineering.

Provost Patrick Wolfe added, “Along with substantial investments in a reimagined School of Business that plays to our strengths in analytics and engineering, and an expansion into Indianapolis that is strategically focused on these same areas, these latest in a long line of strong STEM rankings highlight our relentless pursuit of scholarly excellence at scale.”

Several Purdue engineering programs continue to rank among the top 10: aerospace (No. 6); civil (No. 7); electrical, industrial and mechanical (all No. 8); and computer (No. 10). Just outside the top 10 are nuclear engineering at No. 11, environmental at No. 12 and materials at No. 13.
