Online graduate programs offered by Syracuse University’s College of Engineering and Computer Science (ECS) have been ranked No. 11 for best information technology programs for 2019 by U.S. News & World Report’s Best Online Programs rankings.

“The online computing master’s programs offered by the College of Engineering and Computer Science allow students to work full time while developing skills they can immediately apply to careers in tech,” says Jae C. Oh, chair of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and the David G. Edelstein Professor for Broadening Participation. “Our online curricula mirror the close interactions of our on-campus programs and are every bit as rigorous. It is encouraging to see the quality of our programs reflected in these respected rankings.”

The U.S. News rankings “offer the information needed to identify programs that best suit life and career goals of graduate students, and the top programs not only demonstrate strong academics but also create learning environments that are particularly well-suited to remote students,” the magazine said in a release.

In addition to ECS’ online M.S. programs in Cybersecurity, Computer Science and Computer Engineering, the ranking includes the School of Information Studies‘ M.S. programs in Applied Data Science, Information Management, and Library and Information Science.
