Here are the top US engineering schools with relatively low tuition as ranked by U.S. News & World Report. The U.S. News list compares schools on their research activity, faculty resources, academic achievements of entering students, and assessments by other engineering schools and employers.

U.S. News noted that 202 engineering schools responded either to the current survey or the previous year with the necessary data to be ranked. New this year, in rare cases where an active engineering school reported enough data to be eligible the previous year but did not complete a statistical survey this year. Those schools were still ranked using their previous year’s data. As always, U.S. News relies on schools to accurately report their data.

U.S. News derived each school’s overall rank by scoring them on nine distinct ranking factors. These scores were standardized so they were compared with the means and standard deviations among all other ranked schools. Next, the standardized values were weighted, totaled, and rescaled so the top school received 100; others received their percentage of the top score. Finally, each engineering school in this gallery is numerically ranked in descending order of its overall score.
