Boise State Engineering Program Earns Another High Ranking From U.S. News & World Report

U.S. News and World Report published its "Best Colleges 2013" guidebook and rankings, and it shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone that Boise State was once again included.

Boise State is ranked #13 in the nation among public institutions for its engineering programs.  The rankings are based soley on a survey of engineering deans and senior faculty at all programs accredited by ABET (formerly known as Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) conducted last spring.

Boise State was 15th last year in the survey among public institutions.  The College of Engineering has seven departments with programs in civil engineering, computer science, materials science and engineering, construction management, electrical and computer engineering, mechanical and biomedical engineering, and instructional and performance technology.  More than 2,300 students were enrolled in the Engineering field at Boise State in the spring semester.
