In the annual U.S. News & World Report survey of engineering school deans, ECE's graduate program in computer engineering was ranked the 4th program of its kind in the country. The Department's graduate programs in electrical/electronic/communications have moved into an 8th place ranking, up from 10th last year. Carnegie Mellon's College of Engineering graduate programs overall ranked 11th among the nation's best.
"Our high rankings are a testimonial of our ability to engage in interdisciplinary research and leverage the work of our small but outstanding faculty," said James H. Garrett Jr., acting dean of the College of Engineering. "The whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Of the more than 300 engineering colleges in the U.S., ranking in the top 5 percent is a recognition of our creativity and hard work."
Other graduate rankings are listed in the Carnegie Mellon News.
