UM-Dearborn rates high in magazine survey

DEARBORN---The University of Michigan-Dearborn was rated among the top five master's-level public universities in the Midwest in the annual guide to American colleges published this week by U.S. News. In addition, the campus's College of Engineering and Computer Science was rated among the top undergraduate engineering programs in the country.

In the magazine's ratings, UM-Dearborn is compared with other public universities that offer a full range of undergraduate and master's degree programs, but few doctoral degrees. Those institutions are rated by region because they tend to draw students from their surrounding areas, according to the magazine.

UM-Dearborn's engineering program was ranked among the top 30 schools in the country without doctoral programs, based on a survey of deans and senior faculty members around the country. The ratings appear in the magazine's annual guide to America's best colleges, published August 23.

In specialty areas, UM-Dearborn's undergraduate program in industrial and manufacturing engineering was ranked fourth in the country.

Nearly 1,500 undergraduate students are currently enrolled in the College of Engineering and Computer Science, pursuing degrees in computer and information science, electrical and computer engineering, industrial and manufacturing systems engineering, and mechanical engineering. The school also offers master's degree programs, which currently enroll nearly 1,000 students.

"These polls are not scientific, and their results cannot be considered accurate measures of the quality of a school," according to Subrata Sengupta, dean of the UM-Dearborn College of Engineering and Computer Science. "But it is nice to know that we enjoy a good reputation among faculty members at schools around the country."
