Drexel University's Department of Materials Science and Engineering Ph.D. program ranks 11th out of 88 materials programs in the United States according to the National Research Council (NRC) S-rankings released in September 2010.
These rankings are a data-based analysis of Ph.D. programs throughout the United States. The criteria analyzed include research productivity and student outcomes. The previous NRC rankings were published in 1995, at which time the department ranked 37th.
This is the second recent set of data-based rankings which rates the department within the top 11 departments in the nation. The department's doctoral program ranked among the top ten materials science and engineering programs nationwide according to the 2006 Faculty Scholarly Productivity Index produced by Academic Analytics.
