ChBE Rises to Second in U.S. News Undergrad Rankings

Georgia Tech’s School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering rose to 2nd in the nation (1st among public universities) for its undergraduate program in the latest rankings of U.S. News & World Report. Last year, the school was ranked 3rd.

"This ranking is a wonderful reflection of the talent of ChBE's graduates and the hard work that our faculty and staff do every day to help our students succeed,” says Professor David Sholl, the John F. Brock III School Chair of ChBE.

All of Georgia Tech's undergraduate engineering programs are ranked in the top five of their respective disciplines by U.S. News & World Report, with the College of Engineering listed at 4th overall among engineering schools. 

"This is one indication of the breadth and depth of our undergraduate programs,” says Steve McLaughlin, dean of the College of Engineering. “Since these rankings are based upon how our peers across the country perceive the quality of our programs, it is gratifying to know that they think very highly of Georgia Tech’s engineering programs. The rankings also demonstrate the commitment to excellence shown by our students, faculty and staff.”
