A master’s program in the College of Engineering and Computer Science has been chosen as one of the Top 10 in the country.”

The online master’s degree in engineering management is at No. 7 in rankings from Best College Reviews, a website that ranks online higher-education programs.

The UTC program “was chosen for the university’s overall outstanding reputation, as well as the engineering program’s comprehensive core curriculum, for its faculty’s excellence and the commitment to providing non-traditional students with all of the tools that they need to achieve their educational and career goals,” the website says.

“I’m so glad that we were recognized and ranked No. 7 in the nation, which is a great honor for our college and university,” says Dr. Alp Neslihan, associate dean of the College of Engineering and Computer Science. “This ranking will help us to move forward and bring much more attention not just to our program but to our institution as well.”

The master’s in engineering management began in 2000, “when there were not many online programs at UTC, even in Tennessee and in the world,” Neslihan says. “It’s hard work and dedication of faculty to make it possible and I’m really proud of our accomplishment.

“In the last 10 years, we were trying to make our program different and better than other online engineering management master’s program in the nation. We have students from all over the globe and in many states in the U.S. The reason why these students choose our program is because of its reputation and quality.”
