For the 2023 Best Online Master's in Engineering Programs rankings, U.S. News ranked schools using five categories: engagement, faculty credentials and training, peer assessment, services and technologies, and student excellence. U.S. News selects factors, known as ranking indicators, to assess each program in the categories outlined above. A program's score for each ranking indicator is calculated using data that the program reported to U.S. News in a statistical survey and a peer assessment survey.
