Cal State L.A. Engineering Program is Among America's Best for the Seventh Year in a Row

U.S. News & World Report 2006 "America's Best Colleges" issue has ranked California State University, Los Angeles' engineering program among the nation's best undergraduate programs for the seventh year in a row. Cal State L.A. is the only public undergraduate (master's-awarding) university in the greater Los Angeles area making the top of the list.

Moving up to #32 among the Best Undergraduate Engineering Programs (non-Ph.D.) in the United States, U.S.News ranked the engineering program at Cal State L.A.'s College of Engineering, Computer Science, and Technology using a reputational survey sent in the spring of 2005.

To appear on U.S. News' undergraduate engineering survey, a school must have an undergraduate engineering program accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). Accredited undergraduate engineering programs are split into two groups: those schools whose highest engineering degree offered is a Ph.D. and those schools whose highest engineering degree offered is a bachelor's or master's. According to U.S.News, schools whose highest engineering degree is a bachelor's or master's tend to be more focused on undergraduate education.
