Seven Wright State University graduate engineering programs are ranked by U.S. News and World Report as among the best in the nation for 2024.

The 2024 Best Graduate Schools rankings are based on expert opinions about program excellence and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school’s faculty, research and students and their post-graduate outcomes.

“Wright State University offers more than 150 graduate programs, many of which are nationally recognized and offer coursework and research opportunities led by world-class faculty,” said Subhashini Ganapathy, Ph.D., dean of the College of Graduate Programs and Honors Studies. “We are proud to offer a range of flexible program options that significantly increase accessibility for anyone interested in pursuing graduate studies. Our graduate programs provide an excellent opportunity for students to pursue advanced degrees while balancing work, family and other responsibilities.”

Wright State’s College of Engineering and Computer Science was ranked the 167th best overall engineering school, out of the 199 programs that participated in the rankings.

Seven graduate programs offered by Wright State’s College of Engineering and Computer Science were included in the Best Graduate School rankings:

  • Master of Science in Aerospace Systems Engineering: 66
  • Master of Science in Industrial and Human Factors Engineering: 77
  • Materials science and engineering graduate degree program: 102
  • Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering: 127
  • Master of Science in Computer Engineering: 130
  • Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering: 146
  • Master of Science in Electrical Engineering: 147

The Master of Science in Aerospace Systems Engineering provides graduate study opportunities focused on theoretical study and practical experience in aerospace systems engineering. The program distinguishes itself from others by requiring an interdisciplinary minor in a relevant aerospace area, providing students with a strong systems understanding necessary in the aerospace industry.

The Master of Sciences in Industrial and Human Factors Engineering is a highly customizable degree that can be completed entirely or partially online through distance-learning courses. Students plan a custom course of study in logistics and supply chain, human factors and ergonomics, and data science. The program prepares working professionals with skills to effectively design and operate a variety of systems in such fields as health care, manufacturing, aerospace, distribution and retail.

Earlier this year, U.S. News ranked Wright State’s online Master of Science in Industrial and Human Factors Engineering 37th out of 108 programs nationally in its Best Online Graduate Programs rankings for 2024.

Wright State’s MBA program also recognized

The 2024 Best Graduate Schools rankings from U.S. News also recognized the part-time Master of Business Administration offered by Wright State’s Raj Soin College of Business, ranking the program in the 244 to 269 range.

Earlier this year, Fortune also ranked Wright State’s part-time MBA program as among the best for 2024.

In July, the Raj Soin College of Business plans to launch a new accelerated business essential MBA module that will provide students an opportunity to test out of foundation courses. It is a new offering to accelerate students past the foundation courses.
