Online Schools Report has released their ranking of the Best Online Master’s degrees in Civil Engineering.

Civil engineers are often taken for granted. The same bridges and highways have become an ingrained part of most people’s daily commutes, and they don’t often consider how much effort went into their planning and construction. But there is a great deal of responsibility on the shoulders of civil engineers. There have been five fatal bridge collapses in the United States alone since 2000. The profession needs the support and expertise of passionate new engineers.

Online Schools Report uses a comprehensive set of statistics to determine their rankings. Sticking to hard numbers, they convert data into seven categories: Online Programs Quality measures the strength of a college’s online programs; Student Satisfaction is a measure of how alumni feel about their college experience; Online Presence determines how dedicated the school is to having quality programs available across the country; Affordability and Earnings Potential weigh graduates’ expected earnings against the cost of a degree; and Acceptance and Retention show how hard it is to get into the school and how many students stick around for a diploma.
