Engineering is a very popular undergraduate focus. On average, each course of study awards close to 6,200 yearly four-year degrees; 128,724 students were conferred undergrad degrees in engineering last spring, making it the 3rd most popular subject in the country. Georgia Institute of Technology-Main Campus accounted for 2,194 of those degrees (#1 in the United States of America). Schools in California granted more degrees than any American State (14,467).
674 schools in America award undergrad degrees in engineering; accordingly, singling out the right institution for you could be tricky. Undergrad degrees in engineering are offered at 3.5 times more colleges than the typical field, making it the 28th most universally offered degree.
While 68% of last year's degrees in engineering were four-year degrees; 32% were postgraduate degrees. Engineering is the 3rd most popular graduate degree in the United States of America, with 61,571 degrees conferred. For context, grad degrees in engineering are 22.2 times more popular among postgrad students than the average area of study.
In Total, 190,295 students received a bachelor's or higher in engineering last May.
5,407 of those 190,295 students (2.8%) completed their studies completely remotely - 395 college students and 5,012 master's or doctor's students. As you can see, engineering is not a very in-demand online area of study. It's at the moment the 63rd most popular remote degree with 17.9% less online students than the average subject. For postgraduate students, it's ranked 9th, with 8.1 times the average number of master's & doctor's students per subject (481).
Arizona State University-Skysong awarded 163 online bachelor's degrees, more than any other institution in the US.
Additionally, Colleges from Arizona granted the most online undergrad degrees in engineering last year (180). By itself, Arizona accounts for 46% of the major's online students.
Just 0.3% of all four-year degrees in engineering are completed online, (8.1% for advanced degrees). Arizona State University-Skysong's last undergraduate class had the most dense population of online engineering majors in the country (3.45%). 163 students in their 4,737 student class were awarded an online undergrad degree in engineering. They offer 93% of their degrees remote, and had 33,410 enrolled online undergraduate students last fall. That's 97% of the student body.
There are 32 schools around the nation with a remote college degree in engineering, making it the 28th most commonly available online American area of study. One in every twenty colleges offering the degree even have an online option, and 50% of the colleges that have the degree online are public. The other 50% are private. Florida heads up the nation in providing online options, with 5 of the programs headquartered there.
If you dream to study engineering and are skilled at time management, you may want to think about Clemson University, as it has the 52nd best engineering program in the US. They also award an additional 48 degrees remotely, so their systems are likely dialed. Moreover, there are 91 online undergrad students attending.
