October 7, 2016

The Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory moved up one spot (to third) in U.S. News & World Report’s latest ranking of the nation’s top undergraduate biomedical engineering programs. The department is a partnership between Emory University’s School of Medicine and Georgia Tech’s College of Engineering.

The Georgia Tech College of Engineering continues to be recognized as one of the best in the nation, ranking fifth, in the annual undergraduate engineering program rankings released in September, 2015. Each of the College of Engineering's 10 undergraduate degrees programs was ranked seventh or higher in their respective fields with six programs ranked fourth or higher in this year's rankings.

“We are proud to once again be recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the elite engineering institutions in the United States," said Gary S. May, dean and Southern Company Chair in the College of Engineering at Georgia Tech. "The strength of our college is the depth and breadth of our programs, and it is gratifying to see so many of our individual schools ranked among the best in their fields. With 10 highly ranked programs housed within one college we are in a unique position to offer an unparalleled interdisciplinary educational experience to the next generation of the world's engineers.“

“For almost two decades Georgia Tech has ranked in the top 10 among public research universities. While we are well known for excellence in engineering and other STEM fields, word is also getting out about our other outstanding programs, such as our undergraduate business program, along with our focus on innovation,” said Georgia Tech President G.P. “Bud” Peterson.

Georgia Tech ranked seventh among public universities and 36th among all national universities in the 2016 Best Colleges undergraduate rankings by U.S. News & World Report.
