Two online engineering programs at JHU ranked among nation’s best
Two Whiting School of Engineering online programs are ranked among the best in the country in the new U.S. News & World Report rankings of degree-granting online programs released today.
The Whiting School’s online computer information technology program is ranked No. 5 for the second year in a row, and the online engineering program jumped to No. 14, up from No. 19 a year ago. More than 3,100 students across the country are enrolled in Engineering for Professional’s online and part-time programs, and nearly 1,000 of them study information technology.
“Johns Hopkins Engineering provides novel online courses and programs that focus on emerging, industry-specific topics, giving our students the knowledge they need for a competitive advantage in their careers,” according to Dan Horn, associate dean for the Engineering for Professionals program at the Whiting School. “We are constantly refining our programs and courses to reflect the latest in technologies that students can apply to real-world situations to solve complex problems.”
U.S. News ranks the nation’s best online graduate programs in seven disciplines, as well as the best online bachelor’s programs. Rankings are determined by assigning programs scores in five weighted areas: opportunities for student engagement, faculty credentials and training, expert opinion of the program, student services and available technologies, and student excellence.
