Rankings: Two CoE disciplines move up while one marks its 3rd year at No. 1

Two engineering disciplines, electrical engineering and biomedical engineering, moved up in the latest US News & World Report undergraduate program rankings released Tuesday, Sept. 10. Purdue's EE program stepped up two spots from No. 9 to No. 7, and BME rose from 18th to 15th. Agricultural and Biological Engineering continues its reign at No. 1 for the third consecutive year.

Overall, the College of Engineering's undergraduate programs remain at No. 10 among doctoral-granting universities, tied with UT-Austin.

The rankings are derived from responses to a survey sent to deans and selected senior faculty who rate programs on a 1-to-5 scale.
