Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla is one of the nation’s top 10 “high-value institutions,” according to a new online tool from The New York Times designed to aid prospective students in their college search. Missouri S&T is eighth among universities that provide great value for the cost, according to a ranking published in a March 27th Times article. The article’s author compiled a top-10 list of universities that provided “high earnings” for their graduates along with “low prices” for tuition, fees, and housing. The list included three Ivy League universities–Princeton, Yale, and Harvard–as well as other nationally known institutions. Missouri S&T is ranked eighth on the list – sandwiched between No. 8 Harvard and No. 9 University of Florida. The Times joins several other media outlets and rankings organizations that have recognized Missouri S&T’s value in recent years. They include the highest average starting salary for graduates of any Missouri university, as determined by SmartAsset, Number 3 for career placement among public universities in the U.S., according to the Princeton Review, and Number 5 university for engineering, according to a ranking by Money, which also includes S&T in its list of the nation’s top universities.
