Computer Engineering Graduate Program Jumps 2 Spots in U.S. News & World Report Rankings

Computer Engineer Graduate Program Ranks No. 13

The Department of Computer & Information Science & Engineering (CISE) at the University of Florida continues to climb in the latest U.S. News & World Report (USNWR) rankings among public graduate engineering programs. The computer engineering graduate program has risen to No. 13 among public universities nationwide. Last year, the program was ranked No. 15 among public universities.

“The increase in our rankings is a result of dedication to excellence in our Ph.D. programs,” said Juan E. Gilbert, Ph.D., The Banks Family Preeminence Endowed Professor and CISE department chair. “The faculty are determined to provide our Ph.D. students the best training for their futures, and this change in rankings is a result of that determination.”

The computer engineering degree offers a broad, flexible approach in mastering both computer software and hardware. The department offers both a master’s degree and a Ph.D. in computer engineering.

Six of the UF engineering college’s disciplines — agricultural engineering, biomedical engineering, computer engineering, industrial engineering, materials engineering and nuclear engineering — are listed among the Top 15 public programs. Overall, the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering, which saw its research expenditure grow by more than 10%, ranked No. 26 among all public institutions.
