The University of Texas at Tyler College of Engineering is ranked 42nd nationally by U.S. News and World Report, as shown in the list of top undergraduate (non-doctoral) engineering programs released this week. The College of Engineering has steadily climbed the publication’s Top 100 list for four consecutive years, this time up from last year’s ranking of 75.
For the second year in a row, UT Tyler is the highest-ranked public institution in Texas for undergraduate engineering programs without a doctorate. This is just one of UT Tyler’s most recent rankings. The U.S. News and World Report list also ranked UT Tyler’s undergraduate nursing programming 112th, and the university is 35th on the Washington Monthly’s 2023 list of colleges for best shot of ranked colleges for Buck’s list of South Colleges.
“We are thrilled to be recognized by such prestigious publications as US News and World Report and Washington Monthly,” said UT Tyler President Kirk A. Calhoun, MD, FACP. “I would like to thank the deans and professors for their commitment to providing our students with the best education.”
UT Tyler provides the only comprehensive engineering school in East Texas, offering degree programs in chemical, civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering, as well as a new computer engineering program slated to launch in next fall. The college also offers construction management programs with teaching sites at the university’s main campus in Tyler and the UT Tyler Houston Engineering Center in Houston.
“This recognition by US News and World Report reflects our faculty and staff’s continued commitment to providing students with an engaging and meaningful experience,” said Javier Kypuros, PhD, Dean of the College of Engineering. “Our breadth of current and emerging undergraduate programs rivals research institutions in major metroplexes across the state, and as evidenced by the placement of our alumni in industry-leading companies around the world, the College of Engineering strives to prepare alumni who will be agents of change in their organizations and communities.
With a mission to improve educational and health care outcomes for East Texas and beyond, UT Tyler offers more than 80 undergraduate and graduate programs to 10,000 students. UT Tyler recently merged with the University of Texas Health Sciences Center at Tyler (now known as the UT Tyler Health Sciences Center). Through its alignment with UT Tyler Health Science Center (HSC) and UT Health East Texas, UT Tyler has unified these entities to serve Texas with quality education, cutting-edge research, and excellent patient care. Listed by Carnegie as a doctoral research institution and by US News & World Report as a national university, UT Tyler has campuses in Tyler, Longview, Palestine, and Houston.
