Milwaukee School of Engineering was named one of America's Best Colleges by Forbes on its third annual list. MSOE has been included on the list every year since Forbes began ranking colleges and universities in 2008.
To compile the list, Forbes reviewed post secondary institutions in the U.S. based on the quality of education they provide, the experiences of the students and how much they achieve. According to Forbes, "Whether they're in the top 10 or near the end of the list, all 610 schools in this ranking count among the best in the country: We review just 9% of the 6,600 accredited post secondary institutions in the U.S., so appearing on our list at all is an indication that a school meets a high standard."
