Texas Tech Commended Among Best Online Programs

Whitacre College of Engineering ranked second for online graduate program.

Texas Tech University recently was ranked second among “Best Online Graduate Engineering Programs for Veterans” by U.S. News & World Report. The rankings, now in their second year, were designed to help veterans identify high-quality online degree programs that suit their educational needs.

“Veterans and active-duty service members face unique challenges as students, from transitioning between bases and grappling with deployment to balancing work and family life upon return,” said Robert Morse, director of data research for U.S. News.

The rankings methodology requires participation in four key programs, including that they are certified for the GI Bill; participating in the Yellow Ribbon Program or public institutions that charge in-state tuition for all out-of-state veterans; affiliated with schools that are members of the Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOC) Consortium; and offer at least one course in the Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES) catalog.
