Trine named one of Midwest's best
On the heels of being named to the Princeton Review’s Best Midwestern Colleges, U.S. News & World Report ranked Trine University among the best Midwestern Regional Colleges in its 2012 edition of America’s Best Colleges.
Trine is ranked 34th among Midwest institutions which focus on undergraduate education, but grant fewer than half their degrees in liberal arts disciplines. Trine’s Allen School of Engineering & Technology made the top 100 list of Best Undergraduate Engineering Schools at which a master’s degree is the highest education offered.
“We continue to provide our students with quality academics that prepare them for professional careers and graduate schools. These rankings are a testament to our hard work and dedication to our students,” said Trine president Earl D. Brooks II, Ph.D. “Our engineering students and faculty continue to garner regional and national attention, which only further improves the image of this fine institution.”
U.S. News & World Report gathers data from each college for up to 15 indicators of academic excellence. Each factor is assigned a weight, and the colleges in each category are ranked against their peers, based on their composite weighted score.
Weighted factors include an assessment by peer administrators; graduation and retention rates; faculty resources; student selectivity; financial resources; and alumni giving. The indicators reflect a school’s student body, faculty and financial resources, and outcome measures that signal how well it educates students.
