Civil and Environmental Engineering News

U.S. News and World Report has ranked VMI among the nation's top three undergraduate public liberal arts colleges for nine years.  VMI's engineering programs were once again included in the magazine's list of the nation's best undergraduate engineering programs at schools whose highest degree is a bachelor's or master's degree.  The Institute placed No. 19 on that list this year, up from last year's ranking of 21st.  The rankings in the engineering category are based exclusively on the reputation of the program.

U.S. News considers such factors as a college's reputation as rated by academic leaders nationally; the retention of students; class size; the quality of the faculty; the quality of students; financial resources; graduation rate performance; and the alumni giving rate.
