Tennessee Tech ranked as national university by U.S. News for first time

Posted on September 13, 2016 5:05 am by Kim Swindell Wood

For the first time, Tennessee Tech University is ranked in the top tier as a national university in U.S. News & World Report’s annual college rankings.

Earlier this year, Tech moved up in the national classification system for colleges and universities and is now recognized as a doctoral institution by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education. This caused U.S. News to move Tech from its previous category as a regional university.

“This is great news,” said Phil Oldham, Tech’s president. “We knew Tech would be recognized as a national university by U.S. News, but to be ranked in the top tier this soon was unexpected.”
