UT Knoxville’s nuclear engineering graduate program is now a top 10 program, according to the U.S. News and World Report 2011 graduate rankings. The program was ranked ninth in the country, rising three spots from last year.
UT’s law, education, and logistics programs also were ranked among the best in the nation. The magazine annually ranks graduate programs at public and private colleges and universities in the United States.
The new UT Knoxville–ORNL Graduate Fellowship Program is expected to increase emphasis on graduate student recruiting. “The fact that our nuclear engineering program is one of the best in the country will be a definite asset in attracting high-caliber candidates to UT,” said Wayne Davis, dean of the College Engineering.
