TYLER (September 25, 2023) – Engineering and nursing programs at The University of Texas at Tyler are in the top 100 nationwide according to U.S. News and World Report rankings released last week. This is the fifth consecutive year that the College of Engineering has been ranked in the top 100.

UT Tyler’s College of Engineering is East Texas’ only comprehensive engineering school with degree programs in chemical engineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, construction engineering, construction management, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering. Nearly 1,000 engineering students attend classes on campuses in Tyler and Houston, and students have garnered top finishes in national contests such as Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers Robotics and American Society of Civil Engineers Concrete Canoe competitions.
“Receiving this level of recognition from one of the nation’s most respected ranking organizations speaks to the quality and breadth of our current and emerging undergraduate programs and the dedication of our faculty to provide students meaningful, engaging experiences,’’ said Dr. Javier Kypuros, dean of the College of Engineering.
The UT Tyler School of Nursing aims to provide students with the advanced skills they need in convenient formats to meet the growing demand for patient care and leadership in the health care industry.

Braithwaite School of Nursing Building. About 2,000 nursing students comprise 25% of the university’s enrollment.
“This ranking reflects our ongoing commitment to excellence in nursing education,” said Dr. Barbara Haas, dean of the School of Nursing. “We’re proud of our faculty, staff, students, practice partners and the entire UT Tyler community for their dedication and contributions to the continued success of our nursing program.”
