ISyE's Undergraduate Program Ranked No. 1 for 23 Consecutive Years

Sep 13, 2017 | Atlanta, GA

The H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering’s (ISyE) undergraduate program retained its longstanding position as the top program of its kind in the 2018 Best Colleges undergraduate rankings of national universities by U.S. News & World Report released on September 12, 2017. This makes 23 consecutive years that the undergraduate program has held the no. 1 ranking.

“This recognition is a testament to ISyE’s dedication and commitment to excellence in education and research,” said Edwin Romeijn, H. Milton and Carolyn J. Stewart School Chair and Professor in ISyE. “We’ve held the top ranking for 23 consecutive years thanks to the hard work and collective efforts of our world-class faculty, outstanding students, dedicated staff, and engaged alumni.”

The overall College of Engineering (CoE) ranking marks the fifth time CoE has grabbed this spot on the U.S. News chart, and it again ties the College with the California Institute of Technology's engineering program. All engineering specialties but one at Georgia Tech placed in the top five of their kinds, a unique distinction for a program as large as the College of Engineering.
