The 2019 U.S. News & World Report ranking of graduate schools has been published, and the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell University has again landed in the top 10.

At No. 9 in the nation, electrical engineering is up two from last year’s ranking. Computer engineering also ranked No. 9, down two spots from last year. The fields are ranked by engineering school department heads.

Each school's score reflects its average rating on a scale from 1 (marginal) to 5 (outstanding), based on a survey of academics at peer institutions. U.S. News surveys graduate programs in engineering, law, business, medicine and education annually. Data from peer assessment in other areas is collected on a rotating basis.

But over the past twelve years, his interests have entailed as much art as science. A pioneer in the field of computational art history, Johnson leverages both his engineering acumen and his abiding passion for art to study the physical materials with which works are made.
