Purdue Engineering undergraduate programs consistently rank high among their national peers. In the U.S. News & World Report survey “Best Colleges 2015,” released in September 2014, Purdue’s College of Engineering ranked 9th nationally among doctoral-granting universities. Undergraduate program rankings are based on ratings by deans and senior faculty in those disciplines at peer institutions.

* Nuclear engineering programs are not ranked by USN&WR every year and were not ranked this year. 2005 is the most recent year in which the Nuclear engineering specialty was ranked by USN&WR.
