U.S. News & World Report announced on Friday that it is pulling some of its rankings of engineering programs due to "several database errors." The previous year's rankings will remain in place, the magazine said. "Because year-to-year changes in these rankings are usually marginal, we don't feel that the outcome is substantial to our readers. However, we know that a one- or two-place change can be important to the institutions involved, and we apologize for any problems or confusion this has caused," said the statement. The specialty areas that were replaced by last year's rankings were the following engineering fields: aerospace/aeronautical/astronautical; bioengineering/biomedical; chemical; electrical/electronic/communications; environmental/environmental health; materials; and nuclear.
