UMass Dartmouth ranked #1 public regional university in New England by U.S. News & World Report

College of Engineering undergraduate program listed among best in the nation

The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth is once again rated as the top public "regional university" in New England, according to the recently released U.S. News & World Report rankings, and the university's College of Engineering is listed among the best undergraduate programs in the country.

Regional universities are defined by the magazine as providing a "full range of undergraduate majors and master's programs." UMass Dartmouth, which also offers nine doctorate programs and generates $26 million in annual research, is one of 16 public regional universities in New England. There are 625 public and private regional universities across the nation ranked by the magazine.

The College of Engineering is again listed among the "best in undergraduate engineering" by the magazine. The College is ranked 35th among 194 similar programs nationwide. US News includes UMass Dartmouth's program in a category reserved for institutions that offer bachelor's and master's degrees and having either small doctoral programs or no doctoral programs.

U.S. News & World Report's results come shortly after the University's 25th-nationwide ranking among master's degree-granting universities by Washington Monthly magazine.

UMass Dartmouth is also a top-1% ranking on the President's National Community Service Honor Roll and has earned a Carnegie designation as a Community Engagement University.
