Clark School of Engineering Jumps in U.S.N.W.R. Rankings

Clark School of Engineering Jumps in U.S.N.W.R. Rankings

The Clark School of Engineering undergraduate program achieved its highest ranking ever among schools that offer the engineering Ph.D., up two spots from last year to 22nd overall with one program ranked 11th. The university was ranked 24th among national public universities, tied with Rutgers, compared with a six-way tie for 22nd last year.

Engineering Dean Nariman Farvardin notes not only did the Clark School achieve its highest ranking ever, it ranked 12th overall among state-supported engineering programs. "This is a tribute to the hard and high-quality work of the faculty and staff in the Clark School and the leadership provided by Herbert Rabin, Bill Destler and George Dieter," Farvardin says. Rabin served as interim dean for the past year, and Destler was dean of engineering for five years, succeeding Dieter, who was dean for 17 years.
