No engineering school in the top 50 of U.S. News & World Report’s ranking of undergraduate programs had a more substantial gain in the last two years than the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University (tied with the University of Notre Dame).

Out of 212 universities included in the survey, the Fulton Schools of Engineering now ranks No. 33 overall, and No. 19 among public universities, across undergraduate engineering programs. ASU’s engineering school is up three spots from last year’s ranking (from No. 36) and has risen nine spots from two years ago (No. 42).

“Engineering and computer science are foundational to not only technology innovation but to advancing quality of life,” says Kyle Squires, ASU’s vice provost of engineering, computing and technology and dean of the Fulton Schools of Engineering. “Consequently, the need for talented engineers is only increasing in our society. In the Fulton Schools, our faculty begins preparing students for these critical roles from their first day, creating a commitment to excellence and impact that becomes deeply ingrained, as reflected in these rankings.”

Six areas of study in the Fulton Schools of Engineering now rank among the top 25 undergraduate engineering areas in the nation, according to U.S. News. ASU’s undergraduate areas in civil engineering, computer engineering, cybersecurity, electrical engineering, environmental engineering and mechanical engineering are rated among the best nationally.

• No. 18 in civil engineering.
• No. 20 in cybersecurity.
• No. 20 in electrical engineering.
• No. 21 in environmental engineering.
• No. 23 in computer engineering.
• No. 23 in mechanical engineering.

U.S. News & World Report also ranked the undergraduate computer science program, which is part of the Fulton Schools of Engineering, at No. 46 (up eight spots) among more than 530 undergraduate computer science programs that were included in the survey.

The engine powering the Fulton Schools of Engineering’s continued recognition on the national stage is its world-class faculty. With a clear focus on preparing the next generation of leaders and innovators, ASU’s engineering faculty is committed to conducting use-inspired research and advancing entrepreneurship to address the great challenges of our time and transform society for the better. This academic year, more than 50 new faculty members are joining the Fulton Schools of Engineering, bringing skills and insights from top universities, leading laboratories and pioneering industry sectors from around the world.

The Fulton Schools of Engineering’s reputation for accelerating innovation continues with the launch of the university’s newest engineering school — the School of Manufacturing Systems and Networks. With the goal of playing a significant role in supplying the talent needed to support U.S. leadership in advanced manufacturing, the School of Manufacturing and Systems Networks is building on the Fulton Schools of Engineering’s foundation of comprehensive engineering, computer and technology programs to create a unique educational enterprise that will be a model for preparing students for the jobs of the future and to make an impact in their communities and around the world.
