Engineering Program 38th on Latest US News List
The Fred DeMatteis School of Engineering and Applied Science is ranked 38th in the nation for engineering programs that do not offer a doctoral degree, according to the 2018 U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges rankings released today. The engineering ranking represents a jump of 17 spots compared to the 2017 US News rankings.
Overall, Hofstra was ranked 132nd among national universities, which are defined by US News as schools that offer a full range of undergraduate majors, as well as master’s and doctoral degrees; many of which emphasize research. National universities comprise less than 20 percent of all schools ranked by the magazine.
In their ranking of the nation’s Best Undergraduate Business Programs, the Frank G. Zarb School of Business came in at 128 on the list.
“We continue to be proud of our strong performance as a national university in the 2018 US News & World Report rankings, and in particular the growing recognition of our engineering programs, which focus on real-world experience and are ranked 38th in the nation this year for schools without a doctoral engineering program,” the University said in a statement. “In addition, earlier this year, the Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell was recognized in the 2018 US News rankings as #55 for primary care and #71 for medical school research.”
