The University of Minnesota has once again been recognized for outstanding programs in engineering and computer science in the latest rankings from College Choice and Guide2Research.

College Choice placed the U of M as #4 in the U.S. for the best undergraduate engineering programs (among other research intensive universities).

The College Choice rankings specifically recognized the College of Science and Engineering’s unique combination of majors in programs within the college.

“The University of Minnesota offers the best engineering degrees for undergraduates seeking multiple options for their engineering major” states College Choice. “With the option to earn a science major or minor within the same college, Minnesota appeals to engineering students with an interest in chemistry, physics, or mathematics.”

Guide2Research has announced that the University of Minnesota is the #26 computer science university in the United States (and #40 in the world) for 2020.

These rankings, based on H-index and DBLP publications, were designed to offer the academic community more visibility and exposure to the influential research contributions made by leading institutions at the forefront of computer science.

This departmental ranking follows four computer science faculty members (Vipin Kumar, George Karypis, Joe Konstan, and Shashi Shekhar) being named to Guide2Research’s list of the top 1,000 computer science researchers in the world.
