Methodology for U.S. News and World Report rankings:

Unlike the U.S. News and World Report graduate engineering rankings that rely on a number of factors, the undergraduate engineering ranking is solely based on the peer judgments of deans and senior faculty who rate each ABET-accredited program they are familiar with on a scale from 1 (marginal) to 5 (distinguished).
