Excellence Rising

The Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering’s 12 engineering programs are in the top 20 rankings for public institutions in the U.S. News & World Report (USNWR) Best Graduate Schools report for 2020. While five disciplines maintained their rankings (Nuclear – No. 14, Mechanical – No. 16, Aerospace – No. 16, Computer – No. 16, Chemical – No. 19), seven others advanced to new heights.

Cammy R. Abernathy, Ph.D., Dean of the College praised the efforts of all involved to achieve these remarkable results: “We are excited to note the continuous improvement – from one to as many as four levels – of many of our engineering specialty rankings. This, I think, speaks volumes about the outstanding research and leadership from our faculty, which in turn helps us attract high caliber graduate students from all over the world to come to the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering in pursuit of their advanced engineering degree.”
