The Georgia Tech School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) graduate programs are both in the top five in the recently published 2023-24 edition of the U.S. News & World Report national rankings.
ECE’s computer engineering graduate program advanced one spot to fifth place (tied with University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign) and the electrical engineering graduate program remained in fourth (tied with California Institute of Technology, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, and University of Michigan-Ann Arbor).
The new rankings mean that all four of ECE’s undergraduate and graduate programs are back in the top five according to U.S. News & World Report rankings. In terms of rankings among public universities, both graduate programs placed second. All ECE’s undergraduate and graduate programs now rank either No. 1 or No. 2 among public universities.
“The rankings affirm the value of ECE's excellence-at scale-approach in providing a high-quality education to a broad and diverse range of students, preparing them for the demands of a rapidly changing world and workplace,” said Arijit Raychowdhury, the Steve W. Chaddick School Chair for ECE. “The hard work and dedication of our entire community is reflected in the School’s continued recognition."
Georgia Tech’s College of Engineering graduate program have also entered the top five, climbing two spots to No. 5 in this year’s rankings.
The new rankings put the College of Engineering in third among public universities. It also complements last fall’s undergraduate list, where the College is ranked No. 5 overall.
