EEE ranked 12th undergraduate program in the nation by U.S. News & World Report

Purdue Environmental and Ecological Engineering was ranked the 12th undergraduate program in the nation by U.S. News & World Report, tying with Yale University.

At No. 43 overall among 400-plus universities ranked in the country, Purdue captured its best-ever undergraduate ranking by U.S. News & World Report as it improved its position from No. 51 last year.

Purdue’s renowned College of Engineering moved up one spot to No. 8 in collegewide undergraduate rankings. Purdue was also named the No. 7 Most Innovative university, as the new U.S. News & World Report undergraduate ranking extends Purdue’s streak to six consecutive years as a top 10 Most Innovative school in the nation.   

The 2024 U.S. News rankings released Sept. 18 were calculated using 19 key measures of undergraduate academic quality for national universities. Each school’s ranking factors were calculated and compared with the mean and standard deviation values of other schools to create a normalized score.

“While any single ranking is bound to be noisy and partial, the latest U.S. News undergraduate ranking is yet another reflection of the hard work by our students, faculty and staff,” said Purdue President Mung Chiang.
