Idaho State University’s environmental engineering graduate program is ranked no. 8 nationally by Graduate Programs in its Spring 2015 Rankings of the Top Environmental Engineering Graduate Programs.

Graduate Programs bases its ranking solely on ratings and reviews from current or recent graduate students posted on graduateprograms.com.

“It’s gratifying to be recognized by the students for the quality engineering program that we have at Idaho State University,” said Civil and Environmental Department Chair Bruce Savage. “Really our program is a hidden gem.”

Program rankings, compiled using data gathered between September 1, 2012, and March 31, 2015, encompass reviews posted by more than 70,000 students participating in more than 1,600 graduate programs nationwide. Ratings are based on a 10-star system, with 1 being the worst and 10 being the best.

Rankings are located online at http://www.graduateprograms.com/best-environmental-engineering-schools//

The Top 10 Environmental Engineering Programs are listed below:

1 – The University of Alabama at Birmingham
2 – Northwestern University
3 – University of Florida
4 – Michigan Technological University
5 – California Institute of Technology
6 – The University of Texas at Austin
7 – Stanford University
8 – Idaho State University
9 – University of Colorado at Boulder
10 – University of Georgia

Graduateprograms.com reaches current and recent graduate students through scholarship entries as well as social media platforms.

Graduateprograms.com assigns 15 ranking categories to each graduate program at each graduate school. Rankings cover a variety of student topics such as academic competitiveness, career support, financial aid and quality of network.

For a given graduate program, rankings are determined by calculating the average score for each program based on the 15 ranking categories. These scores are then compared across all ranked schools for that program and are translated into a final ranking for that graduate program. A given graduate program is not ranked until a minimum threshold of graduate student surveys is completed for that program, according to John Karageorge, at Graduate Programs.
