Engineering Ranks Tops for Hispanics
KIMBERLY MILLER | February 07, 2008
The College of Engineering has been ranked tops for Hispanic students once again. New data from the Engineering Workforce Commission of the American Association of Engineering Societies show that UTEP ranks:
- No. 1 in awarding bachelor’s degrees in engineering to Hispanics
- No. 4 in awarding master’s degrees in engineering to Hispanics
- No. 2 in awarding doctoral degrees in engineering to Hispanics
The rankings are based on data from the 2006-2007 academic year for colleges and universities in the United States (not including Puerto Rico).
The Engineering Workforce Commission monitors engineering job statistics that help universities, corporations, and government set salary, hiring, enrollment and degree trends. The degree rankings are among the many reports the organization releases each year.
UTEP’s College of Engineering has received numerous accolades in recent years. In September 2007, the college was recognized as the top graduate engineering school for Hispanics for the third consecutive year by Hispanic Business magazine.
The college consistently ranks as one of the top 5 schools in the continental U.S. in awarding bachelor’s degrees to Hispanics, and has been named a "Model Institution for Excellence" by the National Science Foundation.
