The College of Engineering is the University of Arkansas' college for engineering students. Although officially becoming a separate division in 1913, the University of Arkansas focused early on engineering. The Industrial Engineering graduate program ranked 26th in the nation, and the Engineering program as a whole finished 98th, and is one of the "best values" for Arkansas students nationally.[2]

There are eight different undergraduate degree programs, with 31 graduate degree programs, currently offered.[3]

In 2006, a solar boat built by University of Arkansas mechanical engineering students and electrical engineering students won the Collegiate World Championships.[4]
