With Stanford University topping the list, all 15 schools in our 2015 Top Online Engineering Degrees are ABET accredited and were chosen based on a combination of quality factors: low acceptance rates, high enrollment rates, and high student entrance exam scores. The Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) ensures programs meet high academic standards. However, please note that while schools can receive ABET accreditation, it does not mean that all online programs offered from that school are accredited, so those interested should check the ABET website or contact the school directly.
Many schools with a long history of academic prestige made our online engineering degree ranking besides Stanford, including Johns Hopkins University and the University of Michigan. With 31 master’s degrees and 3 certificates, the University of Southern California offers the widest breadth of degree specialization, including a master's degree in mechanical engineering and biomedical engineering, among others.
