US News & World Report Rankings

In the 2015 US News and World Report lists of Best Undergraduate Engineering Programs, Purdue's EEE undergraduate program ranked 13th (tied with Cal Tech and North Carolina State) in the U.S. among environmental engineering programs. The Purdue College of Engineering ranked as the 9th best undergraduate program among doctoral-granting universities.

EEE by The Numbers

The B.S. degree in Environmental and Ecological Engineering at Purdue University-West Lafayette received formal final approval from the Indiana Commission on Higher Education on September 14, 2012. This marked the end of an almost decade-long process of program planning and launch. The first BSEEE class of ten students graduated in May 2013.

As a fairly new program at Purdue, EEE has been steadily growing as seen in the figure below. On the right are the demographics for the College of Engineering and EEE. As of Fall 2014 there were 84 students enrolled in EEE, of which 51% were women. This is, by far, the highest proportion of women of all Purdue Engineering Schools (across all of Purdue Engineering, 22% are women).
