Texas Tech’s online engineering program moves up in U.S. News & World Report rankings

Texas Tech’s Worldwide eLearning online engineering program moved up one spot from 2017 on the U.S. News and World Report rankings.


The 2018 Best Online Program rankings released on Tuesday listed Tech at No. 16 for Best Online Graduate Engineering Program. The survey of more than 1,300 online programs includes general rankings of each institution’s online undergraduate degree programs and discipline-specific rankings of online master’s programs.

The programs are listed in a searchable directory for prospective students to use to find information about tuition, online services and other data.

Texas Tech Worldwide eLearning offers more than 60 fully online degrees, certifications and certification preparation programs.

Students have access to on-site instructors, technology and tools via seven regional teaching sites across the state, including El Paso, Fredericksburg, Highland Lakes, Junction, Waco, Collin County and Cleburne.

The degrees earned online and at regional sites are the same as those earned at Tech’s Lubbock campus.

“Our university is committed to providing students with a high-quality Texas Tech education no matter where they reside,” said Justin Louder, associate vice provost of Worldwide eLearning. “Not only do our faculty members provide first-rate instruction, but the institution offers year-round support to our online and distance Red Raiders. This ranking reflects Texas Tech’s commitment to our Worldwide eLearning students.”
