K-State ranks high in engineering, good for students

By The Mercury

Kansas State University is receiving more plaudits for its engineering programs, and it’s earning strong marks for what its graduates receive for their investment in their education.

The College Database is a noncommercial website that provides higher education information based on federal data and classifications by the Carnegie Foundation. The College Database ranked the university 22nd in the nation for engineering, above MIT, Cornell, Ohio State and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

The College Database also ranked the university top in the state for the return on investment made by students, measured by the cost of tuition and a graduate’s starting salary.

“K-State will continue to do everything it can during these difficult times to remain affordable, accessible and, most importantly, responsive to our students and families,” said Pat Bosco, vice president for student life and dean of students.
