March 12, 2013

Extending a decades-long run, MIT’s graduate program in engineering has again been ranked No. 1 in the country by U.S. News & World Report. MIT has held the top spot since 1990, when the magazine first ranked graduate programs in engineering. U.S. News awarded MIT a score of 100 among graduate programs in engineering, followed by No. 2 Stanford University (95), No. 3 University of California at Berkeley (87), and No. 4 California Institute of Technology (78).MIT’s graduate programs led U.S. News lists in seven engineering disciplines, up from four No. 1 rankings last year. Top-ranked at MIT this year are programs in aerospace engineering (tied with Caltech); chemical engineering; materials engineering; computer engineering; electrical engineering (tied with Stanford); mechanical engineering (tied with Stanford); and nuclear engineering. Other top-five graduate programs at MIT include industrial/manufacturing/systems engineering (No. 3, tied with Northwestern University, Stanford and Berkeley) and biomedical engineering (No. 5).
