Auburn University’s Samuel Ginn College of Engineering has again been recognized for its premier engineering education, ranking No. 29 among public institutions in the U.S. News & World Report’s 2021 Best Undergraduate Engineering Programs. 

This is the second consecutive year Auburn has been ranked a top 30 public engineering institution. In addition, Auburn was also ranked No. 27 for best First-Year Experiences and No. 35 on the Most Innovative Schools list.

“U.S. News & World Report continues to recognize our efforts to create an exceptional student-centered engineering experience at Auburn,” said Christopher B. Roberts, dean of engineering. “When students come to Auburn, they receive hands-on experience both inside and outside the classroom, backed by expert faculty and unparalleled student support programs. Our alumni have long known this, but more and more, our engineering peers surveyed by U.S. News & World Report are seeing this, too.”

Auburn Engineering offers 13 undergraduate degrees across 10 engineering disciplines as well as a host of graduate programs. The new Brown-Kopel Engineering Student Achievement Center offers one of the most comprehensive, active-learning environments for students in the country.
