Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla is ranked fifth in the nation for students interested in engineering and is ranked first in Missouri, according to Money’s “Best Colleges for Engineering Majors.”
The ranking, released June 7th, was developed from Money’s Best Colleges list, which identifies Missouri S&T as one of the nation’s best values overall. The new ranking, which is focused on engineering education, also is based on the median salaries of recent engineering graduates from each university and the number and proportion of a university’s recent graduates earning bachelor’s degrees in engineering.
In its engineering ranking, Money cited S&T’s breadth of undergraduate programs in engineering and its 19 student design teams, which bring together “over 1,300 students who collaborate with industry professionals to build everything from dirt bikes to robots to remote-controlled aircrafts.”
Missouri S&T is the only Missouri university to make Money’s list of the top 50 engineering programs in the U.S.
The new ranking follows one released last month, also from Money, that places Missouri S&T at No. 41 in the nation and 30th among public universities.
