The Russ College of Engineering and Technology has placed 31st on U.S. News & World Report’s (USNWR) list of best online graduate engineering programs for 2017, keeping its position as one of the country’s best resources for working engineers, technologists and managers looking to pursue a graduate degree.

The Russ College offers three fully online graduate programs – a master of engineering management (MEM), a master of science in civil engineering (MSCE), and a master of science in electrical engineering (MSEE). USNWR evaluated each program on a number of factors, including student engagement, faculty credentials, and student services and technology.

“The high quality of many online programs is often ignored,” Russ College Dean Dennis Irwin said. “It’s gratifying to see that our online programs, which have existed in some form for decades, are finally getting the recognition they deserve.”

The Russ College programs scored highest in the faculty credentials and training category, in which they ranked 14th.

“I’m very pleased to see that our online engineering programs continue to be ranked as one of USNWR’s best online engineering programs,” Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering chair Robert Judd said. “I believe this is a testament to the dedication of the faculty and staff to deliver a quality program, especially in the ever increasingly competitive landscape of online education.”

The Russ College programs also received high marks for student services and technology, where it ranked 27th. OHIO also made the list of 2017 best colleges, and ranked as the 74th best public college.

This is the sixth year that USNWR has released its best online program rankings, evaluating more than 1,200 accredited U.S. distance learning programs to determine the results.
