When you enroll in the College of Engineering at Ohio State, you’re choosing engineering at its finest.
We offer 14 majors in 11 departments with state-of-the-art facilities, a diverse faculty of more than 350 eminent scholars and researchers, and an exciting and vibrant campus. We have nearly 9,000 undergraduate students enrolled in our college, which is ranked as the #1 engineering program in Ohio and 16th among public engineering programs in the United States. Although Ohio State is a large institution with many areas of study, some of our engineering majors have fewer than 20 graduates per year.
