The Computer Science Doctoral Program at Michigan State University
placed in the top 17% of the United States according to the recently
released National Research Council's (NRC) ranking. The NRC’s
“Data-Based Assessment of Research-Doctorate Programs” provides two
ranking metrics, which are ranges for which the ranking is 90%
confident. Of the 126 programs assessed, one ranking (R-ranking) places
the MSU's Computer Science Doctoral Program within the top 10%-25% in
the U.S., and the other ranking (S-ranking) places MSU in the top 8%-35%
in the U.S. When program scores are sorted according to the rankings,
MSU's computer science doctoral program falls within the top 17% of all
the programs in the U.S.
