U.S. News and World Report released its much-awaited 2022 Best Graduate School rankings, and four UH Mānoa College of Engineering graduate programs were ranked among the best in the nation. Civil engineering ranked No. 84; computer engineering, a joint program in the College of Engineering and Department of Information and Computer Sciences ranked No. 105; electrical engineering placed No. 107; and mechanical engineering is No. 139. The College of Engineering ranked in the No. 154–202 tier among top engineering schools in the U.S. that grant doctoral degrees.
Engineering Dean Brennon Morioka is pleased with the recognition, but even happier because of what it represents for our students and community. “We are very proud of our growing reputation with our peers, with our industry partners, and especially with our students,” said Morioka. “While we are pleased that all of our engineering degree programs are ranked nationally, we continue to strive to improve the educational experience of our students, the level of innovation of our research endeavors, and the impact our College of Engineering ʻOhana can have within our state and local communities. While we continue to strengthen our partnerships in industry and research, we have also introduced the concept of industry-infused curriculum where industry is embedded into the learning experiences of our classrooms, where mentorship and entrepreneurialism are celebrated, and where Hawaii’s young leaders are cultivated. We are invigorated by our progress, but we are even more excited about the future that lies ahead of us.”
