LSU College of Engineering ranks in top 8% nationally for graduates
Increasing student demand for an engineering degree and the heightened workforce need for more engineers are illustrated in the LSU College of Engineering's latest national enrollment rankings, the university says. The newly released 2012 edition of Profiles of Engineering & Engineering Technology Colleges published by the American Society of Engineering Education places LSU's College of Engineering in the top 8% of 348 schools in the country for number of degrees awarded. ASEE annually publishes the leading data on engineering colleges in the United States, including both individual college statistics and national trends. LSU says a strong focus of the state's flagship university is to raise the rank and profile of LSU among peer institutions nationwide, and the College of Engineering exemplifies that charge. "These higher rankings are proven evidence of the impact the flagship College of Engineering program has on the state and is now respected nationally," says LSU Chancellor Michael Martin in a prepared statement. The LSU College of Engineering was ranked 26th nationally in the number of undergraduate students enrolled of the 343 schools reporting, and 30th nationally in the number of undergraduate degrees granted out of 348 schools reporting. In addition, the LSU chemical engineering program ranked 25th out of 159 schools for bachelor's degrees conferred, and the electrical engineering discipline placed 49th out of 256 schools reporting.
