T.J. Smull College of Engineering Ranked in Top 50

Sep 2, 2008
Ohio Northern University's T.J. Smull College of Engineering is ranked as one of the top 50 undergraduate engineering schools in the nation according to "America's Best Colleges 2009," which is published annually by U.S. News & World Report.

ONU tied for 38th place in a ranking of those undergraduate engineering colleges that do not offer a doctoral degree program. Across the nation, there are approximately 175 engineering colleges in this category and, in the state of Ohio, ONU is one of only two schools ranked in the top 50.

"The faculty and staff of the College of Engineering are extremely pleased with this recognition as we seek to achieve excellence in undergraduate engineering education," said Dr. Eric T. Baumgartner, dean of the College of Engineering. "This ranking is based on a peer assessment of the quality of our programs, and it is rewarding to know that our peer institutions regard the college as one of the best in the nation."

This marks the second consecutive year that ONU's College of Engineering has cracked the top 50. In the 2007 rankings, ONU was ranked in a tie for 54th place and jumped to 47th place a year later.

ONU offers degrees in civil, computer, electrical and mechanical engineering and computer science. The college also has memberships in national organizations such as the American Society for Engineering Education and the Association for Computing Machinery and is recognized by the Ohio Board of Registration for Professional Engineers and Surveyors.
