The 2015 graduate program rankings have been released by U.S. News & World Report, and the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Georgia Tech continues to do very well. Electrical engineering ranked sixth and computer engineering ranked seventh in the overall rankings.  Among public universities, the School took the third and fourth spots in EE and CmpE, respectively.

“Given the current student/faculty ratios, economic factors, and tightening federal research dollars from the last year, the School of ECE is doing an extraordinary job both in education and research,” said Steven W. McLaughlin, Steve W. Chaddick School Chair of ECE.

“The innovation and ingenuity that I see from our faculty, staff, and students on a daily basis are inspiring and invigorating,” McLaughlin said. “I sincerely appreciate the hard work, dedication, and creativity of our faculty, staff, and students that keeps us ranked among the very best in the country.”

The College of Engineering placed sixth overall and second among public universities, and for the third year in a row, all 11 of the programs within the College are in the top 10. Georgia Tech appears on the top 10 list of engineering specialties more than any other ranked institution. Tech’s programs in business, computer science, mathematics, and physical science also placed well in the annual rankings.
