Milwaukee School of Engineering was named one of America’s Top Colleges by Forbes on its fourth annual list. MSOE has been included on the list every year since Forbes began ranking colleges and universities in 2008.

To compile the list, Forbes reviewed postsecondary institutions in the U.S. based on the quality of teaching, great career prospects, graduation rates and low levels of debt. According to Forbes, “The 650 institutions of higher education in this ranking are schools which award undergraduate degrees or certificates requiring 4 or more years of study, according to the U.S. Department of Education, and only those schools categorized by The Carnegie Foundation as Doctorate-granting Universities, Master‘s Colleges and Universities, or Baccalaureate Colleges are included in this sample of schools.” There are more than 2,500 colleges and universities in the United States.
