The University of Nebraska-Lincoln's No. 61 ranking in the latest U.S. News & World Report college rankings is in part fueled by the College of Engineering's rise to No. 80 among U.S. undergraduate engineering programs.

The College of Engineering was ranked No. 80 among U.S. undergraduate engineering programs, improving from No. 82 last year.

“The latest improvement in our ranking is one of many indicators of the college’s positive trajectory,” said Lance C. Pérez, dean of the College of Engineering and Omar H. Heins Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. “Our enhanced national reputation is a direct reflection of the investments made in the college by the university, the state, Nebraska industry and donors.”
