The University of Tulsa is ranked among the top 10 petroleum engineering graduate programs in the U.S. News and World Report’s new rankings of America’s best graduate schools published today.

“TU is known here and abroad for its top faculty, quality students and modern research and teaching facilities,” said Steven J. Bellovich, dean of TU’s College of Engineering and Natural Sciences. “This ranking reflects the excellent national and international reputation of our program, and we are pleased to be recognized.”

The TU petroleum engineering department, established in 1928, offers bachelor of science, master of engineering, master of science and doctoral degrees.

“The success of our many energy research consortia – supported by a number of the world’s leading petroleum companies – is proof of our status as one of the best petroleum schools in the world,” said Bellovich. The first consortium, TU Drilling Research Projects, was founded in 1967.

For its rankings, U.S. News asked engineering school deans nationwide to identify the 10 schools with the best graduate programs in 12 areas of specialization. Results are part of U.S. News and World Report’s 2001 “America’s Best Graduate Schools” rankings and guidebook.
