Missouri S&T continues to garner recognition as a top-ranked university in the nation for students pursuing graduate degrees in engineering, with the school’s online master’s in engineering management on the rise, according to the latest U.S. News and World Report rankings.
Missouri S&T is tied with Duke University for third place in U.S. News’ rankings of online graduate engineering management degree programs, announced yesterday (Wednesday, Feb. 7), up from its sixth-place ranking last year.
Missouri S&T’s engineering management program was the first in the nation, conferring its first degree in 1968. In 2022, it became one of three founding departments of the Kummer College for Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Economic Development, which was made possible by a transformative $300 million gift from the late June and Fred Kummer, a Missouri S&T graduate.
“We are so pleased to see our peers recognize our programs as truly exceptional opportunities for professionals who are seeking advanced degrees,” says Dr. Tim Faley, interim vice provost and dean of the Kummer College. “This ranking is a continuation of this pioneering program’s long-standing tradition of excellence.”
