The U.S. News & World Report’s latest rankings of the best online degree programs rate two of Kansas State University’s courses in the top-tier. According to the report, K-State ranks No. 20 and No. 86 for the best online graduate engineering and online graduate education programs, respectively.
More than 1,200 online programs were surveyed by U.S. News & World Report, with rankings evaluated in five categories, including student engagement, faculty credentials and training, student services and technology, peer reputation, and admissions selectivity.
“To have our online graduate program ranked in the Top 20 by U.S. News & World Report is a proud accomplishment for both the college and university,” said Darren Dawson, dean of the College of Engineering. “It is a strong indicator of the high quality of our student and faculty, as well as the research they are pursuing.”
The university administers its online programs through Kansas State’s Global Campus. Currently, K-State offers online engineering master’s degrees in software, mechanical, electrical, chemical, civil and nuclear engineering, as well as engineering management and operations research. Education master’s degrees can be obtained online in academic advising, adult and continuing education, and curriculum and instruction.
“Kansas State University’s online graduate programs continue to meet industry needs for an increasingly educated and skilled U.S. workforce,” said Sue Maes, dean of Global Campus. “We are pleased to help extend these programs to adult learners on a national and global scale.”
