Four College Departments Ranked in US Top 100 by US News

  Four departments in the Fulton College of Engineering and Technology are ranked among the top 100 in the United States, reports U.S. News & World Report in its "America's Best Graduate Schools" issue, on sale Monday, April 3.

U.S. News ranks graduate programs in the areas of business, education, engineering, law and medicine. These rankings are based on two types of data: expert opinion about program quality and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school's faculty, research and students. Indicator and opinion data come from surveys of more than 1,200 programs and nearly 9,600 academics and other professionals conducted in fall 2005. The magazine also ranks programs in the sciences, social sciences and humanities based solely on the ratings of academic experts.

The following are the other BYU graduate programs and specialties ranked in the new issue:

Ira A. Fulton College of Engineering and Technology

-- 62nd, mechanical engineering specialties

-- 74th, civil engineering specialties
