Johns Hopkins University’s engineering graduate programs are again among the nation’s best, according to U.S. News & World Report‘s annual Best Graduate Schools rankings. 

The graduate engineering school rankings, released today, are determined by a number of factors, including a school’s research expenditures, faculty productivity, admitted student information, and its reputation among peers and the employers who hire its graduates. Specialty rankings are based on leadership feedback from peer schools and program and are influenced by multiple factors, including an institution’s global and national reputation, publications and citations, research statistics, and other factors.  

The biomedical engineering graduate program, which is part of both Johns Hopkins’ Whiting School of Engineering and School of Medicine, ranked No. 1, tied with Georgia Institute of Technology. 

The Whiting school ranked No. 14 for engineering graduate programs overall, moving up two spots this year. 

Other Hopkins Engineering graduate programs ranked in the top 25 include: 

  • Chemical Engineering: No. 19 (tied) 
  • Computer Engineering: No. 18 (tied) 
  • Computer Science: No. 23  
  • Electrical Engineering: No. 23 (tied) 
  • Environmental Engineering: No. 25 (tied)  
  • Materials Science and Engineering: No. 20 (tied) 
  • Mechanical Engineering: No. 14 (tied)
