According to the publication’s website, Washington Monthly takes a different approach to rankings, by focusing on data that is more reliable and relevant to the majority of students, as well as to policymakers.

The Washington Monthly’s measures are based on publicly available data largely collected by the federal government.

The ranking reinforces Oregon Tech’s real-world focus, which produces real results including average graduate starting salaries of $60,000 per year.

Oregon Tech also ranks among the best schools in the nation on Forbes’ annual Top Colleges list, released this week. The rankings list 500 schools – the top 20 percent of all four-year and graduate universities in the nation – with Oregon Tech listed at No. 377 overall and No. 179 in Public Colleges.
