GT ChBE moves up in graduate rankings

The School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering at Georgia Tech has moved up one spot to No. 9 in U.S. News & World Report’s annual ranking of graduate schools nationwide.

Georgia Tech’s ChBE graduate program is tied with the University of California-Santa Barbara and the University of Delaware in the 2016 ranking. The listing includes a rating from 1 (marginal) to 5 (outstanding); Georgia Tech earned a 4.1 on the scale.

“Considering that there are more than 150 chemical engineering schools in the country, it is an exceptional achievement to be ranked No. 9,” said David Sholl, chair of the School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering. “We have worked hard to provide a top-notch education for graduate students as well as undergraduates, and we recruit the brightest graduate students to contribute to the groundbreaking research that is conducted here at Georgia Tech. This ranking reflects that commitment.”

The Georgia Tech College of Engineering was ranked No. 6 (tied with Purdue University-West Lafayette in West Lafayette, Ind.) among the best graduate schools in engineering, and it was No. 2 among public institutions.

All of the College of Engineering’s individual schools were ranked among the top 10 in their fields. Georgia Tech is the only institution in the nation to have all of its engineering graduate programs in the top 10 in four straight years.
