The Ohio State University Department of Food, Agricultural and Biological Engineering (FABE) rose in the latest rankings from U.S. News and World Report 2022 Best Colleges Issue. FABE ranked sixth in the nation in agricultural and biological engineering, up from seventh last year, and is the highest ranked of Ohio State’s 10 departments or specialties that received enough votes for inclusion.
Ohio State once again ranked first in Ohio for its undergraduate engineering program and 16th among public universities nationwide. Among both public and private institutions, Ohio State’s College of Engineering ranks 27th, up one spot from last year.
Other nationally ranked Ohio State engineering undergraduate programs included materials engineering (12), electrical engineering (16), industrial/manufacturing engineering (16), aerospace engineering (19), mechanical engineering (21) chemical engineering (23), electrical engineering (24), civil engineering (27), and computer engineering (27).
The publication’s rankings of undergrad engineering programs accredited by ABET are based solely on the judgments of deans and senior faculty at peer institutions. Those same respondents also were asked for nominations of the 15 best engineering programs in 12 specialty engineering areas. Those receiving the most mentions in each appear on the site ranked in descending order as long as the program received seven or more nominations in that specialty area.
