U.S. News & World Reports places the AE School No. 4 in the nation – No. 1 among publicly funded institutions

The U.S. News & World Report announced today that the Daniel Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering’s graduate program is ranked No. 4 in the nation – No. 1 among publicly funded institutions.

“It is a great honor to be recognized by our peers as a top aerospace engineering graduate program,” said Mark Costello, William R. T. Oakes Professor & AE School Chair. “Year after year I am proud of the research conducted by our talented faculty and students, and hopeful for what’s yet to come. None of this would be possible without the support of our alumni, donors, partners, and staff”.  

The AE School’s master’s and doctoral degree offerings include hands-on research, word-class faculty experts, mentorship networks, as well as distance learning opportunities. New research facilities, like the Indoor Flight Lab and the Yang Aero Maker Space give students access to innovative and collaborative research and work spaces.

Georgia Tech’s College of Engineering is now No. 7 in the nation among engineering graduate programs. That’s one spot higher than last year and tied with the California Institute of Technology. The College is fourth among public universities, and for the 11th year in a row, all 11 of the College’s graduate programs are ranked in the nation’s top 10.
