Clark School Earns High Rankings from U.S. News, ARWU
The University of Maryland's Clark School of Engineering earned national and international recognition in two recent academic program rankings.
The Institute of Higher Education and Center for World-Class Universities ranked the Clark School 13th in the world among all engineering programs in its Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU). Among all public university programs, the Clark School was ranked 8th.
Since 2003, Shanghai Jiao Tong University's Institute of Higher Education and Center for World-Class Universities has published the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU). The ranking is purely objective based on quantitative measures of productivity with no reputation component. The ARWU survey is primarily based on research productivity and academic scholarship, including the number of highly cited researchers on the faculty, the number of articles by faculty members published in Nature and Science magazines and the overall quality of journals in which articles have appeared.

The 2011 U.S. News and World's Best Colleges survey ranked the Clark School’s undergraduate program 19th in the nation among all engineering programs. Among public programs, the Clark School ranked 9th.

The Clark School also earned recognition in The Wall Street Journal's "Top 25 Recruiter Picks," which identified those universities from which large employers most heavily recruit graduates to fill entry-level jobs. In that survey, the University of Maryland was ranked 8th in the nation, and the A. James Clark School of Engineering was ranked 3rd among all engineering programs.
