The Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science at UT Dallas improved its ranking in the latest U.S. News and World Report review this month, moving up to 73rd in the country.
The news comes at the same time as the celebration of the opening of the new Bioengineering and Sciences Building, the largest academic building on the campus at 220,000 square feet.
In state rankings, the school fell only behind the University of Texas, Texas A&M and Rice University, three of the largest and most prominent schools in the nation. Several individual programs rose significantly in the new rankings list as well, including the computer engineering program which moved up four spots and the systems engineering program that climbed 11 slots. Both are now ranked 58th.
Perhaps one of the biggest gains for UT Dallas this round was the improvement of the School of Economics political and policy science program, moving up 36 spots from its 2012 ranking to now sit at No. 68. The Naveen Jindal School of Management full-time MBA program tied for 37th.
Other rankings include audiology (fourth), productions and operations (21st), and the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences, which continues to rank in the top 20 nationwide.
