The University of Tennessee, Knoxville’s Tickle College of Engineering rose eight spots in the U.S. News and World Report’s ranking of online master’s engineering programs that was released Tuesday, climbing to a tie at 21st among all institutions and 17th among all public schools in the 2021 listings.
“I am happy to learn that our online offerings in engineering continue to rise in the rankings,” said Janis Terpenny, dean and Wayne T. Davis Dean’s Chair of the college. “Our aim is to increase our online offerings significantly in the near term, making our high-quality education available to ever more learners, whether they are seeking undergraduate or graduate degrees, certificates, or other professional development opportunities.”
Unlike the graduate and undergraduate program rankings, which typically come out in March and September, respectively, not every discipline within engineering is ranked in the online edition. Civil, electrical, industrial, management, and mechanical engineering were the five areas of study calculated in the online rankings.
