EE Graduate Program Measures Up in the New National Research Council Assessment

EE Graduate Program Measures Up in the New National Research Council Assessment

The report just released by the National Research Council, a ‘Data-Based Assessment of Research-Doctorate Programs’ shows the EE Graduate Program to be doing exceptionally well. The survey based rankings (S ranking) placed greatest weight on faculty research activity such as per capita publications and grants. Programs strong in those areas ranked higher, and we ranked very high. A comparison of the different UC and AAU EE Graduate Programs can be seen below. The NRC rankings include a range, but the short answer as to how to interpret them is that the closer to one and the less spread, the better. As you can see from the chart below, based on quantitative data, the EE Graduate Program at UCR looks very good in the comparison with the other UC campuses and AAU schools. The S ranking emphasizes per-capita research activity, whereas a separate reputation-based ranking (R ranking) gives more emphasis to the overall size of the program and its reputation. Because of our youth, our quality precedes our reputation, and it is only a matter of time before our reputation catches up.
