Virginia Tech and Ohio State University EcoCAR Teams in the Spotlight

We think all the EcoCAR teams are pretty great. But when others recognize their hard work and contributions to engineering, it’s even better. 

This week, The College of Engineering at Virginia Tech and College of Engineering Ohio State University received a prestigious nod in U.S. News & World Report‘s “America’s Best Graduate Schools” 2011 survey. Ironically, both schools were tied at 25th as the best U.S. school for graduate studies.

Virginia Tech’s engineering school – which currently includes 2,000 graduates students – rose two spots from last year’s survey and was also recently featured in an article in Virginia Tech NewsTo view the entire “U.S. News and World Report” survey, please click here. Congrats teams! 


Both the OSU and VT teams also were thrilled to be profiled by Keith Barry at WIRED. During the past few months, Keith spent time catching up with the students as they get ready for Finals and today, the second profile in his series went online.
