NYIT School of Engineering Ranked in Top Quartile of U.S. News & World Report’s 2013 Edition

New York Institute of Technology's (NYIT) School of Engineering and Computing Sciences was ranked among the top engineering schools offering bachelor’s or master’s degrees, according to U.S. News & World Report.

"We are pleased with the ranking and peer recognition we have received in U.S. News & World Report’s 2013 edition. Our commitment is and will remain focused on the quality, student-centered education we provide and the continuous efforts to improve our programs and facilities in order to attract the best faculty and students to NYIT," said Nada Marie Anid, Ph.D., Dean, NYIT School of Engineering and Computing Sciences.   

The U.S. News rankings of the undergraduate engineering programs accredited by ABET, formerly known as the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, are based solely on the peer judgments of deans and senior faculty who rated each program they are familiar with on a scale from 1 (marginal) to 5 (distinguished). Engineering school deans and faculty members were surveyed in spring 2012 for this ranking.

Also, for the 15th consecutive year, NYIT is ranked a top regional university by U.S. News & World Report, and, for the first time, is named among the top 50 universities in the north in the 2013 rankings.

The rankings of top engineering schools were announced at www.usnews.com/colleges, and are published in the 2013 Best Colleges guidebook.
