National Rankings Show Consistency
Georgia Tech Ranks as the No. 7 Public University in the Nation
Posted September 10, 2013 | Atlanta, GA
For the 15th consecutive year, Georgia Tech is rated among the finest public universities in the United States. In its annual evaluation of undergraduate programs, U.S. News and World Report ranked Tech seventh in the nation. Among all national universities — public and private — Tech is ranked 36th.
“Thanks to the outstanding work of our faculty, staff, students and partners, Georgia Tech enjoys a long track record of continued excellence,” said Georgia Tech President G. P. “Bud” Peterson. “We are committed to building on our success in teaching and research, developing leaders and innovators who will improve the human condition in Georgia, the U.S., and around the globe.”
Tech’s College of Engineering maintained its 5th place ranking for undergraduate engineering programs that award doctoral degrees. With eight of its engineering programs ranked in the top five, Tech also continued its strong showing in individual disciplines.
Three other Georgia Tech initiatives are cited in the publication’s “Academic Programs to Look For” — internships, senior capstone design and undergraduate research.
The Scheller College of Business ranked 27th for undergraduate business education, up five spots from the previous year’s report.
