Auburn University’s Samuel Ginn College of Engineering continues to emerge as one of the nation’s top engineering colleges, ranking No. 29 among public institutions in the U.S. News & World Report’s 2020 Best Undergraduate Engineering Programs. 

Auburn moved up four spots among public institutions from No. 33 in the 2019 rankings. 

“This ranking shows how far we have come in creating a premier student-centered engineering experience at Auburn,” said Christopher B. Roberts, dean of engineering. “We have invested significant resources and energy into hiring renowned faculty, developing exceptional student-support programs, building unrivaled facilities and providing new opportunities for experiential learning. This ranking is a testament to that commitment.” 

Auburn Engineering offers 13 undergraduate degrees across 10 engineering disciplines as well as a host of global programs. The new $44 million Brown-Kopel Engineering Student Achievement Center opened its doors in August, providing a comprehensive, active-learning environment for student support and career development located in the heart of campus. 

U.S. News & World Report’s Best Undergraduate Engineering Programs rankings are released annually each fall.
