You’ll have to wait for March 11 to get the full list. However, U.S. News & World Report provided a preview of the top ten Engineering Schools in the country for 2015. The list is based upon a survey of more than 1,300 graduate schools and programs.

Here’s the top 10 engineering schools of 2015 in alphabetical order:

California Institute of Technology
Carnegie Mellon University (PA)
Georgia Institute of Technology
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Purdue University–West Lafayette (IN)
Stanford University (CA)
University of California–Berkeley
University of Illinois–Urbana-Champaign
University of Michigan–Ann Arbor
University of Texas–Austin (Cockrell)

A subscription is required to see the full list, which will be available tomorrow on usnews.com. You can also follow the news and comment via Facebook and Twitter #BestGradSchools. Besides engineering, also on the usnews.com website will be updated lists of the top professional graduate schools for law, education, business, and medicine.

The hard copy guidebook “Best Graduate Schools of 2015” will hit bookshelves on April 8. The book will also include specialty areas like part-time law schools and part-time MBA programs.

This is the list from 2013. There only seems to be one change, University of Southern California was replaced by University of Texas (Austin.)

Rankings are based on expert opinions and statical data that measures the quality of a school’s faculty, students, and research. The data is the result of surveys of administrators, academics, and professionals.
