Kettering University has once again secured top spots among higher educational institutions — including No. 12 of more than 150 higher education institutions in the Midwest — according to the U.S. News & World Report’s Best Colleges 2022 rankings.

Nationally, Kettering moved up four spots from last year to No. 13 as the best undergraduate engineering programs at schools without doctorate programs. Its mechanical engineering program also ranked No. 13. 

“Our faculty and staff are constantly working to improve our programs,” said Dr. Craig Hoff, Dean of Kettering’s College of Engineering. “We’re pleased to see our efforts recognized.”

The report, which is in its 37th year, assesses bachelor’s degree-granting colleges and universities in the United States on 17 measures of academic quality such as graduation and retention rates, student-faculty ratio and the average federal loan debt of graduates. 

This year’s report analyzes 1,466 institutions, including 157 in the Midwest.

In addition to receiving these accolades, the College Gazette recently listed Kettering as the No. 1 Automotive Engineering School in the nation.
