On the List

ONU’s College of Engineering has been recognized as one of the nation’s top 50 undergraduate engineering programs in Best Colleges 2016, which is published by U.S. News & World Report.

The college ranks 39th among engineering schools whose highest degree is a bachelor’s or master’s, marking the eighth time in nine years that U.S. News & World Report has listed ONU in its top-50 rankings. U.S. News ranks undergraduate engineering programs accredited by ABET (formerly known as Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology).

“The faculty, staff and students in the T.J. Smull College of Engineering are again pleased to be recognized for excellence in undergraduate engineering and computer science education,” said Dr. Eric T. Baumgartner, dean of the College of Engineering. “We fully embrace our mission to engage students through personal relationships and high-impact educational experiences in order to maximize their success. We are very proud of the accomplishments of our students, faculty and alumni, which help to bring national recognition to the college.”

The rankings are based on a spring 2015 peer assessment survey of engineering deans and senior faculty from ABET-accredited programs who rated each program they are familiar with on a scale from 1 to 5.
