MSE program ranked 6th nationally, 14th internationally

Carnegie Mellon University’s Materials Science and Engineering program has been ranked 6th nationally and 14th internationally by British education company Quacquarelli Symonds’ (QS) 2014 World Education Rankings. The QS rankings are among the top three most influential and widely observed international university rankings.

“The ranking reflects the strength of our academic reputation and scholarship; these are two of the three factors in the scoring,” said Greg Rohrer, who heads Carnegie Mellon’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering. “In other words, the research carried out by our faculty and students is highly respected across the world.”

Rohrer noted that the department will continue to pursue the most technologically relevant areas, such as materials science, materials for energy systems, and biomaterials.

“We have excellent young faculty whose reputations in the academic world are growing and will continue to grow for the foreseeable future,” Rohrer said. “It is the work and accomplishments of these faculty who will advance our reputation.”
