New this year, U.S. News ranked the top 700 undergraduate nursing programs in the nation and MSOE’s nursing program was among the Best Undergraduate Nursing Program in U.S. (288th).  

The 2022 rankings by U.S. News assessed 1,466 U.S. bachelor’s degree-granting institutions to 17 measures of academic quality. Rankings are based on several factors and scores are weighted to arrive at a final overall score. Among the many factors weighed in determining the rankings, the key measures of quality are: peer assessment of excellence, graduation and retention rates, faculty resources, student selectivity, financial resources, graduation rate performance and alumni giving. U.S. News uses the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education to group schools into like categories. MSOE is classified as a Regional University.  

U.S. News bases its undergraduate engineering programs rankings on the judgments of deans and senior faculty at peer institutions, who are surveyed each spring and asked to rate each program they are familiar with on a scale of 1 (marginal) to 5 (distinguished).
