provide excellent opportunities for Hispanic students.
The College of Engineering at The University of Texas at El Paso has made Hispanic Business Magazine’s list of Top Ten Graduate Engineering Schools for Hispanics for the 4th year in a row.
The College came in at number four this year, after being number one for the past three years.
The rankings are announced in the magazine’s September issue and through its website. The placements are based on factors such as the number of Hispanics enrolled as full-time students, Hispanic faculty, and the college’s reputation.
“We are delighted to be ranked in the top 10 for a fourth year,” said Richard Schoephoerster, dean of the College of Engineering. “It is our mission to provide our students with top-notch educational programs and research opportunities. Diversity drives innovation and we are committed to preparing our graduates to be the leaders and innovators of tomorrow.”
To be on the list means the graduate schools are doing a good job in many categories, especially with recruitment and retention of Hispanics, said Mike Caplinger, the magazine’s research supervisor.
Hispanic Business magazine started the lists in 1998 for top law and business schools. It added medical and engineering in 2005. To see the complete rankings, visit.http://www.hispanicbusiness.com/rankings/
