US News & World Report's rankings for 2016-2017 has all of our programs, graduate and undergraduate, in the #1 spot. Our graduate program in environmental engineering has held the #1 spot for the past 8 years; civil engineering has been in the top 2 for the past 14 years. Our undergraduate programs in environmental engineering and in civil engineering are top ranked every year, often like this year, as #1.

Our doctoral program tops the 2010 National Research Council rankings.
