About OnlineEngineering.org

Our Mission

OnlineEngineering.org is working to become the go-to site for all online engineering degree program information. We focus on online engineering degrees and information for prospective students. We are the only directory of all the online engineering degree opportunities in the US, and we give visitors the information they need to pursue their engineering degrees.

While we work to share all engineering degrees obtainable online, we also carefully rank engineering degree programs. In addition to using available IPEDS data provided by the US Department of Education to rank engineering programs, we have teamed up with AcademicInfluence.com to bring you rankings informed by their proprietary Influence and Desirability scores. These scores use machine learning to crawl the web to see which schools are truly influential and desirable. We also provide you with detailed school profiles so that you have the information you need to make informed decisions.


At OnlineEngineering.org we use a combination of data from the federal government and AcademicInfluence.com to generate accurate and unbiased rankings. For more information, visit our Methodology page.

How We Make Money

OnlineEngineering.org generates revenue by advertising certain programs on behalf of schools that compensate us for student referrals.

When site visitors make school selections using our college or degree finder tool, or when they interact with ads labeled as “ad” or “advertising disclosure” on our website, we may receive compensation from partnered colleges and universities. We strive to be as transparent as possible when it comes to separating our advertised and editorial content. The advertising placements through which we receive compensation are unambiguously identified with terms like “ad” or “advertising disclosure.”

Maintaining Editorial Independence

Our proprietary methodology and algorithm for evaluating college programs ensures that our guides and rankings are unbiased. The data sources we use include the National Center for Education Statistics and the Bureau of Labor Statistics. These sources are recognized for providing accurate information about education and occupations around the United States. In addition to maintaining the highest standards for our sources, we do not rank any schools or programs on our website based on any type of financial relationship with any school partner.

Schools never receive preferential treatment in our rankings because of financial compensation or advertising partnerships. All the schools in our rankings are evaluated using the same criteria and are ranked by our algorithm. We do not award schools rankings that do not directly reflect variables such as admission rates, retention rates, graduation rates, and program costs.

We take editorial integrity seriously and constantly evaluate our content for bias, recency, and accuracy. Our experts, writers, and editors all abide by a consistent set of editorial standards focused on the balanced presentation of facts and responsible journalism. Editorial decisions are made, and editorial content is conceived, with current, prospective, and returning students in mind. Our resources are therefore focused on supporting the student experience, without any consideration to financial relationships with school partners. All schools in our rankings are nationally or regionally accredited, providing an extra layer of quality assurance and transparency in our rankings.
