The H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering’s (ISyE) undergraduate program maintained its longstanding position as the top program of its kind in the 2019 Best Colleges undergraduate rankings of national universities by U.S. News & World Report (USNWR). The rankings were released on September 10, 2018. This makes 24 consecutive years that the undergraduate program has held the No. 1 ranking.
“This recognition is a testament to ISyE’s dedication and commitment to excellence in education and research,” said Edwin Romeijn, H. Milton and Carolyn J. Stewart School Chair and Professor in ISyE. “We’ve held the top ranking for 24 consecutive years thanks to the hard work and collective efforts of our world-class faculty, outstanding students, dedicated staff, and engaged alumni.”
For the first time, all 10 of Georgia Tech’s engineering programs that are ranked by USNWR are in the top five. For the sixth time, the overall College of Engineering ranks as fourth on the USNWR chart, again tying the College with the California Institute of Technology's engineering program. Among public universities, Georgia Tech's engineering program ranks second behind the University of California, Berkeley.
