Cal Poly Pomona continues to be rated among the top colleges and universities in the Western United States, according to U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Colleges 2016.”
The university came in fourth among non-doctorate-granting public universities in the West, and was ranked second among CSU campuses. The West, as defined by U.S. News & World Report, encompasses 15 states.
“These rankings recognize our outstanding programs and our hands-on education. That’s why employers value a Cal Poly Pomona degree – it means that our graduates can make significant contributions on Day One,” says University President Soraya M. Coley. “We are proud to have achieved this level of success while creating access and opportunities for students from all backgrounds.”
When private institutions are included, Cal Poly Pomona also stacks up strongly, ranking No. 31 in the West.
The College of Engineering was highly regarded as well, ranking 15th nationally among programs that offer bachelor’s and master’s degrees. The college moved up from No. 23 last year.
