Every year, US News & World Report publishes its annual ranking of the best graduate schools and programs.  For the materials engineering programs, what are the changes between the 2016 and 2017 rankings? MSE Supplies (www.msesupplies.com) has compiled the ranking data and found some interesting movement of ranking spots of some schools.  

 Most noticeably, Columbia University moved up 24 spots from last year's #43 to this year's #19.  The second most improved ranking goes to UC Riverside, which climbed from #65 to #48 year-over-year.
