The Georgia Tech School of Electrical and Computer Engineering both moved up and maintained its positions from last year in the 2017 U.S. News & World Report graduate engineering program rankings. Computer engineering advanced one spot to sixth place, and electrical engineering held steady, also in the sixth place position. Among public universities, the School ranked third in both EE and CmpE.

“We are doing an extraordinary job both in education and research. The innovation and ingenuity that I see from our faculty, staff, and students are inspiring and invigorating, thus making ECE an excellent option for prospective graduate students who are looking for a challenging and rewarding educational experience,” said Steven W. McLaughlin, Steve W. Chaddick School Chair of ECE. “I sincerely appreciate the hard work, dedication, and creativity of our faculty, staff, and students that keep us ranked among the best in the country.”

The College of Engineering placed seventh in the overall rankings and third among all public engineering institutions.

All of the graduate programs in the College ranked in the top 10 of their respective areas, making Georgia Tech the only institution in the nation to garner top 10 rankings for all of its engineering graduate programs for five straight years.
