UM-Dearborn rates high in magazine survey

DEARBORN---The University of Michigan-Dearborn was rated among the top six 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 eighth among public 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 22.

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

"The university's top-ten ranking in its Midwest category is just one more piece of evidence that tells students and their families what exceptional opportunities are here at the University of Michigan-Dearborn," according to Stanley E. Henderson, vice chancellor for enrollment management and student life. "And the top-ten national ranking in the undergraduate engineering program and top-five spot in the undergrad industrial/manufacturing specialty are especially gratifying because they speak to the reputation UM-Dearborn's engineering programs have among other institutions. It's great to be at a place that others hold in such high regard."
