For the sixth year in a row, Manhattan College was ranked in the top 20 in U.S. News & World Report’s annual America’s Best Colleges rankings in the category of Best Regional Universities in the North.
The report will hit newsstands on Sept. 18 in the 2013 guidebook, and lists Manhattan as No. 17.
The College’s School of Engineering also earned a national placement of No. 35 in the Best in Undergraduate Engineering category, advancing from No. 40 in the 2011 rankings. This particular category evaluates engineering schools that offer bachelor’s and master’s degrees, but not doctoral degrees. U.S. News surveys engineering deans and senior faculty at undergraduate engineering programs accredited by ABET (formerly known as Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology).
“We are proud to be recognized in this publication as consistently among the best of our peer group, and are gratified by this confirmation of the strong national reputation of our School of Engineering,” said Brennan O’Donnell, Ph.D., president of Manhattan College.
