August 17, 2010

All the hard work on designing and initiating the new Undergraduate curriculum has earned (again) the MIT Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department top ranking in the release today of the latest U.S. News & World Report.

EECS Department Head Eric Grimson noted to his colleagues that "under the engineering specialties, the EECS Department is ranked in two categories: Computer Engineering and Electrical/Electronics/Communications. I am delighted to inform you that in both categories we were ranked Number 1 again this cycle."

The MIT News Office noted that MIT’s top standing, ranked among peer institutions, will appear in both the magazine and in the 2011 edition of the magazine’s annual college guide, “America’s Best Colleges” that hits newsstands Monday, Aug. 23. All rankings went online early today.
