Case School of Engineering jumps nine spots in U.S. News rankings of undergraduate programs

The Case School of Engineering at Case Western Reserve University has been ranked 35th in the nation for undergraduate engineering education in the latest U.S. News & World Report rankings—a nine-spot gain.
The Case School of Engineering's undergraduate biomedical program ranked No. 11. Case Western Reserve overall maintained its position as the nation’s 37th-ranked university, and the university saw other significant gains in categories involving admissions and undergraduate alumni. The university’s overall selectivity ranking jumped from 47th to 34th, and the alumni participation ranking climbed from 48th to 44th. 
“We are pleased with the progress we have made in specific areas,” President Barbara R. Snyder said, “but recognize that we have ample room to improve. We will continue to build momentum in areas of growth, and identify ways to strengthen our performance in other categories.”
Over the past five years, undergraduate applications have grown 150 percent, a trend that has allowed admissions officials to be increasingly selective in issuing acceptance letters. Recent classes have seen dramatic improvements in average scores on standardized tests as well as the proportion of students from the top 10 percent of their high school graduating classes. Meanwhile, the university’s alumni giving rank has catapulted ahead in recent years, moving 65 slots since 2008.
