Rose-Hulman’s growing national reputation as a leader in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education continues with distinctions for the institute’s academic quality, value and career placement.

The latest recognition comes from U.S. News & World Report’s 2022 Best Colleges Guide which ranked the institute No. 1 among U.S. engineering colleges that are focused on bachelor’s- and master’s-level education.

This is the 23rd consecutive year that Rose-Hulman has been selected the best in the specialized engineering category, in U.S. News’ annual survey of college engineering deans and senior faculty across America. They were asked to rate programs at accredited undergraduate engineering programs on a scale of 1 (marginal) to 5 (distinguished). Rose-Hulman tallied a 4.6 score, tops out of 239 colleges nationwide in the category.

Rose-Hulman also once again earned No. 1 rankings in four academic department categories:

Civil engineering
Computer engineering
Electrical engineering
Mechanical engineering
Rose-Hulman President Robert A. Coons states that the U.S. News ranking is just one of several national distinctions by publications and organizations citing Rose-Hulman for academic and teaching excellence, quality STEM laboratories, faculty expertise, and innovative curricular programs that provide graduates with the problem-solving skills and lifelong educational abilities that are highly sought after by industry recruiters and graduate school admission counselors.

“Our peers within the STEM education community have observed and continue to value the qualities that have been hallmarks of a Rose-Hulman education: teaching excellence, state-of-the-art facilities, and a caring faculty and staff providing personal attention to top-notch students,” Coons said. “The formula for our success hasn’t changed throughout nearly 150 years, led by quality leadership provided by our Board of Trustees and administration, and cherished by our successful, loyal and proud alumni.”

Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Rick Stamper, PhD, adds that Rose-Hulman works hard to maintain its reputation as a top STEM college through continuous improvement across all its academic programs, including improving academic facilities, adding new academic majors, investing in new courses, and hiring faculty dedicated to undergraduate education and research.

Rose-Hulman opened a new $29 million, 70,000-square-foot academic building for the 2021-22 school year. It has engineering design spaces, chemistry and biochemistry laboratories, innovative classrooms, and collaborative workspaces to support world-class undergraduate STEM learning, research and hands-on project creation. The institute also recently added the Branam and Kremer Innovation Centers to provide students with more opportunities for hands-on learning and working on group projects and competition teams, as well as new academic majors in engineering design, data science and biomathematics.
