UF NE Graduate Program rises to No. 12, MSE Maintains at No. 8 Among Public Institutions

2021 USNWR Graduate Program Rankings

The UF Department of Materials Science & Engineering and the UF Nuclear Engineering Program, housed within the department, are once again ranked among the best graduate school programs at public universities in the U.S.

The Nuclear Engineering graduate program climbed two spots to No. 12, from its previous No. 14, according to the 2021 U.S. News & World Report Best Graduate Schools Ranking. Additionally, the Materials Science & Engineering graduate program maintained its No. 8 ranking.

U.S. News & World Report determines the top graduate schools through a combination of objective measures including placement success, student selectivity and an industry-wide assessment of reputation.

“Rising two spots in the nuclear engineering graduate school rankings is challenging given the high caliber of our peers but reflects the hard work and dedication of our department as a whole,” said Michele Manuel, Ph.D., chair of the Department of Materials Science & Engineering. “Our students, faculty and staff all play a major role in keeping UF at the top and on the rise.”
