The P.C. Rossin College of Engineering's online graduate engineering programs moved up the ranks in U.S. News & World Report for the third year in a row.


Compared to more than 100 schools, the Rossin College's online master's degree programs rank in the top 50, moving up for the third year in a row in the popular U.S. News & World Report. 

The Rossin College’s online master’s degree programs moved up to No. 42 in U.S. News & World Report’s recently released 2022 Best Online Graduate Engineering Programs list.

For its 2022 list, U.S. News & World Report ranked the online graduate engineering programs offered by more than 100 schools using five categories: engagement, expert opinion, faculty credentials and training, student excellence, and student services and technologies. 

“Highly ranked programs,” according to U.S. News & World Report, “have strong traditional academic foundations based on the excellence of entering students, graduation rates and instructor credentials. They also excel at educating distance learners while offering robust career and financial support.”

We are steadily enhancing our ability to deliver that value online, leveraging our strengths in key sectors of engineering.”
