You want proof of Rose-Hulman's prowess? Okay, then.

We know you math, science and engineering types. You're always wanting to see the proof that something is true. Well, here's the external evidence that Rose-Hulman ranks highly nationwide (and we truly deserve to wave a foam finger #1!).

U.S. News & World Report repeat, three-peat…twelve-peat and counting
For 16 years, Rose-Hulman has been deemed the No. 1 engineering institution not offering the doctorate. On top of that, our established engineering departments have all been named No. 1: mechanical, electrical, civil, chemical and computer engineering.
