U.S. News and World Report has just published their annual rankings of the Best Engineering Undergraduate Programs in the country and the UT ECE Department is ranked #7 in Computer Engineering. The Electrical Engineering Undergraduate Program was ranked #11. This continues a long streak of UT ECE being ranked among the Top 10 programs in the country.
The U.S. News rankings of 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 (two surveys were sent to each ABET-accredited engineering program) were surveyed for this ranking in spring 2010.
