DARTMOUTH, MA -- UMass Dartmouth is once again rated as the top public "regional university" in New England, according to the recently released U.S. News & World Report rankings, and the university's College of Engineering is listed among the best undergraduate programs in the country.

Regional universities are defined by the magazine as providing a "full range of undergraduate majors and master's programs." UMass Dartmouth, which also offers nine doctorate programs and generates $26 million in annual research, is one of 16 public regional universities in New England. There are 626 public and private regional universities across the nation ranked by the magazine.

The College of Engineering, which recently launched the first undergraduate bio-engineering major in the five-campus UMass system, is again listed among the "best in undergraduate engineering" by the magazine. The college is ranked 37th overall -- tied with Boise State University and the University of Portland (OR) -- and 14th among public campuses.
