Updated Engineering Rankings

Recommended Posts

US News has released updated rankings for graduate schools...out of curiosity, does anyone have access to the 'US News Engineering School Compass?' There has been some shuffling of Environmental Engineering programs among the top 10 but I'm curious to see rankings for the top 20 or so environmental programs for the new year.

You don't seriously consider a jump of a couple of spots (or even 5!) as an indicator of the quality of a program, do you?

I don't think anyone actually does. No, but there's kind of an unofficial competition between the 2 programs, and it seems MIT has been winning it for the last number of year. So Stanford getting ahead is kind of fun to watch :P

@zerothorder, I am pretty sure BU's rankings in ECE (photonics) isn't particularly high ranked. However, I am getting my Masters in EE at BU (not in photonics), but I know there's lots of good work happening in that area. I also think BU gets pretty underrated for engineering. The profs are good, the research is good, and facilities are great, and the campus is nice. I am not sure if you are considering other places, but if you are worried about BU because of ranking, I think you will be ok.

can you find anything related to ranking of Boston University for photonics or related areas?

thank you.

No specific photonics ranking, but BU is #48 in Electrical Engineering and #58 in Materials Science and Engineering.
