Central Michigan University’s School of Engineering and Technology has been ranked 86th among the nation’s universities that offer bachelor’s and master’s degrees in engineering by U.S. News & World Report.
For their 2015 rankings of engineering programs without a doctorate degree, only 200 schools accredited by ABET, formerly known as the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, were eligible for inclusion in a peer assessment survey.
“CMU’s undergraduate engineering program recognition by U.S. News reflects the benefit of our small class sizes that allow for greater interaction with dedicated faculty,” said CMU School of Engineering and Technology director Mohamad S. Qatu.
“We have excellent facilities and updated laboratories, and emphasize the importance of student internships. We graduate well-prepared engineering students who are leaders in the field and who land coveted jobs at top companies.”
CMU offers ABET accredited bachelor’s degrees in mechanical engineering and electrical engineering, and has seen substantial growth over the last few years in the number of students enrolled in engineering and technology programs.
Internships are an important part of the curriculum, and engineering graduates are recruited for employment and work at highly respected Michigan companies including Chrysler, Dow Chemical, Dow Corning, Ford Motor Company, Gentex and Steelcase.
CMU’s Engineering and Technology building, which features 30 specialized laboratories and classrooms, prepares students with a solid career foundation working with electronics, robotics, manufacturing systems and more.
In addition to the latest No. 86 ranking for the undergraduate engineering program, Central Michigan University also ranked No. 194 among national universities overall and No. 110 among top public schools.
In 2014, U.S. News & World Report rated Central Michigan University No. 1 overall for undergraduate online programs, No. 1 nationally for its online bachelor’s and master’s in education programs for veterans, No. 3 in graduate education programs for teachers and administrators, and No. 17 for its online graduate business program.
