The environmental engineering graduate program at Texas A&M University-Kingsville ranks among the top 100 in the nation, according to U.S. News and World Report

The publication gave the program a #69 national ranking for 2019. This ties A&M-Kingsville’s environmental engineering graduate program with schools that include Dartmouth College, Marquette University and the University of Georgia, among others. 

The statistical indicators that U.S. News and World Report uses to measure academic quality fall into seven broad areas: first-year student retention and graduation of students; peer assessment; faculty resources; admissions selectivity; financial resources; alumni giving; and graduation rate performance, which is the difference between the proportion of students expected to graduate and the proportion who do. 

The environmental engineering graduate program is part of the Frank H. Dotterweich College of Engineering at Texas A&M-Kingsville. 

The college offers accredited bachelor-level programs in architectural, chemical, civil, electrical, environmental and mechanical engineering (accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, Inc.), computer science (accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET), and industrial management and technology (accredited by the Association of Technology, Management and Applied Engineering). 

It also offers a bachelor’s degree in natural gas engineering; master’s degrees in the engineering disciplines of chemical, civil, electrical, environmental, natural gas, industrial and mechanical, along with industrial management and computer science; and doctoral degrees in the engineering disciplines of sustainable energy systems and environmental.
