Clarkson University #26 in Nation's Best Environmental Engineering Graduate Programs

Clarkson University's environmental engineering graduate programs have been ranked 26th in the nation by U.S. News & World Report's America's Best Graduate Schools 2009.

The environment is one of Clarkson's signature areas of research, said University Provost Tom Young. "Our environmental graduates will be key to implementing the solutions that will guide us toward a more sustainable future, locally, regionally and globally. We are pleased that the high quality of our environmental engineering programs has again been recognized by U.S. News & World Report."

Clarkson's civil engineering graduate program was ranked 62nd.

To determine the best graduate schools, U.S. News reviews post-graduate programs at more than 1,200 universities. Rankings are based on expert opinion about program quality and statistical indicators that measure the quality of the school's faculty, research and students. Clarkson ranks seventh in the nation among small research universities.

Clarkson University crosses the boundaries of disciplines, nations and cultures in order for discovery, engineering innovation and enterprise to come together. As a result, faculty and graduates grasp the full impact of their calling, direct their research to the world's pressing issues and lead with confidence and distinction. One in seven alumni is already a CEO or other senior executive. Located in Potsdam, N.Y., just outside the six-million-acre Adirondack Park, Clarkson is home to 3,000 students preparing for rewarding careers through 50 rigorous programs of study in engineering, business, arts, science, and health sciences, as well as unparalleled outdoor recreation and life experiences beyond the classroom.
