Military Academies Rank Among Best Colleges

US News and World Report‘s ranking of institutions of higher learning is topped by Harvard and Princeton, but the US Air Force Academy posted a strong #2 in the country for Aerospace / Aeronautical / Astronautical undergraduate programs, and #5 for overall Best Undergraduate Engineering programs.

The US Military Academy at West Point was #3 for Engineering and #2 for Civil Engineering, while the US Naval Academy at Annapolis was tied at #5 for Engineering programs and #6 for Mechanical Engineering.

The academies routinely fall near the top of Princeton, Forbes, and the US News rankings.

The US military academies produce around 20% of the military’s officers, and they do so while providing educations that rank at the top of the nation.
