America’s Best Colleges List Ranks Cal State Northridge Among Top 50 Undergraduate Engineering Programs

Cal State Northridge’s College of Engineering and Computer Science has ranked among the nation’s best undergraduate engineering programs, according to the new 2005 “America’s Best Colleges” list released by U.S. News & World Report magazine.

The honor marks the second straight year the university’s engineering college has earned its place among the nation’s 50 best undergraduate programs in engineering. Northridge is one of only six California State University programs in the top ranked tier of engineering programs accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology. “It is exciting that our college has once again made the list of the best undergraduate engineering schools,” said S.T. Mau, dean of Northridge’s College of Engineering and Computer Science. The college, ranked 39th, tied with seven out-of-state institutions in the magazine’s survey of public and private engineering schools whose terminal degree is the bachelor’s or master’s.

Northridge was also rated among the nation’s top five master’s level colleges and universities whose undergraduates go on to obtain doctoral degrees in science and engineering, according to a 2003 National Science Foundation survey.
