In the national spotlight

Our school


You may have read that Rose-Hulman has been ranked No. 1 in U.S. News & World Report among institutions whose highest degree in engineering is the master's. Did you note that we've landed that No. 1 spot 17 years in a row?

But that's not the only time we're in the national spotlight. In addition to being included in several other magazines and rankings, our faculty and students bring accolades of their own.

Our faculty

The Fulbright Scholar Program sends 800 faculty and professionals abroad from the United States each year, and Rose-Hulman has had 12 professors selected for this prestigious exchange. Most recently, Dr. Lee Waite spent the school year at the Heart Surgery Laboratory of the University of Heidelberg, Germany, where he worked with a team of surgeons and biomedical engineers. Read about Dr. Waite and our other Fulbright Scholars.

Rose-Hulman also has many authors in our midst, which is no surprise given all the knowledge our faculty members have to share. Most recently, Dr. Terrence Casey has published The Legacy of the Crash a hard look at recent economics. From computer applications to university physics to linear algebra, the Rose-Hulman faculty has covered it. See a selected bibliography of books authored by Rose-Hulman faculty.

Our students

Each year we have students who reap national accolades. Our teams also compete well nationally. Take the Rose-Hulman Human Powered Vehicle Team as a prime example. For three consecutive years, the team has captured national championships in the American Society of Mechanical Engineers' competitions. In the competition, the student teams design and build aerodynamic vehicles capable of road use.

Rose-Hulman's student-athletes also shine brightly. Since 1978 more than 80 Fighting Engineers have been named Academic All-Americans! Other students have been listed in USA Today's All-USA College Academic Team.
