For the fourteenth year running, Georgia Tech has been ranked as one of the country’s top ten public universities by U.S. News and World Report. Tech ranked 36th among all national universities, and is ranked fifth for undergraduate engineering programs.
All of the Institute’s engineering schools received a top-ten ranking, and the newly-named Scheller College of Business ranked 31st for undergraduate business education.
Meanwhile, SmartMoney recently honored Tech with the distinction of being the best return-on-investment for American students. On average, recent Tech grads earn $59,000 annually, about 67% of their tuition; graduates who got out in the 1990s earn an average of $102,000 annually, more than three times the cost of their tuition nearly twenty years ago.
