USC's Engineering program has really been taking off in the last few years. The new US News Ranks came out today, and USC has continued to move up:

1 Massachusetts Institute of Technology
2 Stanford University (CA)
3 University of California Berkeley
4 University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign
5 Georgia Institute of Technology
6 California Institute of Technology
University of Southern California (Andrew and Erna Viterbi)<------Tied for rank 6 with Caltech

8 Purdue University West Lafayette (IN)
University of Michigan Ann Arbor
10 Cornell University (NY)
11 Carnegie Mellon University (PA)
12 University of Texas Austin
13 University of California San Diego
14 Texas A&M University College Station
University of Wisconsin Madison
16 Princeton University (NJ)

I'll be interested to see what happens to USC's ungraduate engineering school in the new ranks. It is currently 29. However, it has been attracting very talented students and faculty in recent years. The average SAT of students in USC's engineering undergrad program ousts both UCLA's and Berkeley's. But, rightfully for the moment, their undergrad engineering programs are ranked higher. Any comments or predictions for the next ranking for USC's undergrad engineering program??

Hi, do you know by any chance what is USC's ranking in Civil Engineering?
I was accepted by both USC and Michigan Ann-Arbor for a graduate degree, and I can't decide which one to attend.

Thank you.
