Undergrad Engineering Program in National Top 50

Sept. 10, 2015 -- The UC Irvine Samueli School’s undergraduate engineering program has been recognized among the top 50 in the nation by U.S. News & World Report – for the seventh consecutive year.

The magazine’s 2016 Best Colleges report, released this week, ranked the Samueli School’s undergrad program 48th among both public and private colleges, and 27th among just publics.

 “At the Samueli School, we know that we offer a high-quality engineering education to our students, and this ranking makes it public knowledge as well,” Dean Gregory Washington said. “We’re proud of our record, and we will continue providing an educational experience that prepares our students to meet the engineering demands of an increasingly complex and technical global society.”

The U.S. News rankings of undergraduate engineering programs accredited by ABET are based solely on the judgments of deans and senior faculty at peer institutions.

UC Irvine ranked ninth among public universities nationwide, and 39th overall among the 1,365 public and private colleges and universities evaluated.  Rankings are available online through Sept. 30 at www.usnews.com/colleges.
