The Best Undergraduate Chemical Engineering Schools

Save

In 2010, the U.S. News and World Report ranked the top colleges and universities in the nation in the field of chemical engineering. The top tier of the 278 schools surveyed included Stanford University, California Institute of Technology, Georgia Institute of Technology, University of Texas Austin, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology

  • Ranked first on the list for the 21st consecutive year on the U.S. News and World Report listing for both the graduate and undergraduate programs, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is one of the most prestigious chemical engineering programs in the nation. Producing CEOs, award winners and professors, MIT is widely known as setting the standard for research and training in the specialty of chemical engineering. Located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, MIT offers three undergraduate programs in chemical engineering, including a program focusing on the emerging biotech and life sciences industry. The chemistry programs also offer joint programming with MIT's Sloan School of Management, allowing students to gain a business perspective.
