WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - One of Purdue's graduate programs has been ranked second in the country for Latino students.
Hispanic Business magazine's research arm, HispanTelligence, recently determined the University's College of Engineering grad program has only been getting more appealing for Latinos.
The ranking is based on Latino enrollment, faculty, student services, retention rates and reputation among Latinos.
"Our consistently high ranking in this survey shows how dedicated our faculty, staff and students are to making Purdue's College of Engineering inclusive," said Leah Jamieson, the John Edwardson Dean of Engineering. "We're committed to continuing to improve in this area."
The program is up from last year, when it ranked fourth in the nation.
The No. 1 graduate engineering school in the U.S. is the Georgia Institute of Technology.
Others in the top 10 after Purdue are the University of Texas at El Paso, University of New Mexico, University of Texas at San Antonio, University of Central Florida, University of Florida, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Washington, and Cornell University.
