The University of Houston is one of the best universities in the world to earn an engineering degree from, according to 2017 rankings released by CEOWorld Magazine.

The UH Cullen College of Engineering was ranked No. 73 in the list of top destinations to receive an engineering or technology degree. CEOWorld Magazine ranked institutions based on academic reputation, admission requirements, job placement rate, recruiter feedback, specialization and global reputation and influence. 

The list's top spots went to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (No. 1), the California Institute of Technology (No. 2) and the Stanford University School of Engineering (No. 3). The UH Cullen College of Engineering was one of only three Texas schools to make the list; the Cockrell School of Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin was ranked No. 26, followed by Texas A&M's Dwight Look College of Engineering at No. 27.

This acclaim comes on the heels of other such rankings lauding the Cullen College and its excellence.

In September, Forbes.com called the University of Houston a star and “increasingly a rival to places like MIT in advancing not just cleaner, safer and more efficient ways of extracting oil and gas from the earth, but also cleaner energy and zero-carbon energy.” Also that month, College Choice wrote that a UH chemical engineering undergraduate degree was among the best in the United States.

University-wide praise has been rolling in too. In August UH was rated among the best colleges for undergraduate education by the Princeton Review. This month UH was featured in the Princeton Review’s 2017 edition of “Colleges That Pay You Back: The 200 Schools That Give You the Best Bang for Your Tuition Buck.”
