Ohio Northern University’s College of Engineering ranked in the top 50 undergraduate engineering programs

Sep 11, 2013

Ohio Northern University’s T.J. Smull College of Engineering has been recognized as one of the nation’s top 50 undergraduate engineering programs in “Best Colleges 2014,” published by U.S. News & World Report.

The college ranks 33rd among engineering schools whose highest degree is a bachelor’s or master’s, marking the sixth time in seven years that U.S. News & World Report has listed ONU in its top 50 rankings. U.S. News ranks undergraduate engineering programs accredited by ABET (formerly known as Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology).

“At the Smull College of Engineering, we believe that our field truly helps to shape the world and that fostering experiential, hands-on learning is the key to engineering success. We are very proud of the accomplishments of the college’s faculty and students and their many achievements that have been recognized at the national level,” said Eric T. Baumgartner, dean of the T.J. Smull College of Engineering.

The rankings are based on a spring 2013 survey of engineering deans and senior faculty at all ABET-accredited programs. The survey asked the dean and a faculty member at each accredited program to rate the programs with which they’re familiar on a scale from 1 to 5.

ABET accreditation demonstrates the Smull College of Engineering’s commitment to advancing the quality of its programs. It is recognition by the technical professions that the college’s programs are preparing students well, and it is evidence of the college’s commitment to “best practices” in education through formal continuous quality improvement processes. ABET accredits more than 3,100 applied science, computing, engineering and engineering technology programs at more than 670 colleges and universities in 24 countries worldwide. See more at
