According to a 2010 National Research Council (NRC) study of doctoral programs in the United States, UD’s doctoral programs in civil and environmental engineering rank 17th nationwide in terms of “research activity”.

The statistical study included an intensive data analysis of 130 programs from 105 universities in the “civil and environmental engineering” category, drawing on information provided by administrators, faculty and students. Programs were ranked using both a survey-based approach (“S” ranking) and a regression-based approach (“R” ranking).

Based on average, UD-CEE doctoral programs rank 26th in the country by the S ranking and 38th in the country by the R ranking for overall quality and effectiveness.
