Money magazine ranks University of Washington Bothell third in the nation on its list of “25 great, accessible colleges for aspiring scientists and engineers.”

The magazine rated colleges that score high in its national rankings, accept more than two-thirds of their applicants and have good graduation rates.

The rating Monday drew on Money’s ranking of UW Bothell as 36th in the nation last year on its overall list of best colleges. And, the early-career median salary for UW Bothell science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) graduates is $64,100, according to PayScale.com figures used by the magazine. UW Bothell followed Maine Maritime Academy and Texas A&M University on the list. 

“This ranking reflects the outstanding faculty, staff and students in the School of STEM at UW Bothell,” said Elaine Scott, dean and professor of engineering. 
“Our faculty and staff dedicate themselves to providing engaging, collaborative, and rigorous educational opportunities for our diverse student body. We are proud to be recognized this way as our graduates continue to become successful and engaged citizens.”

In the past five years, 33 degrees have been added at UW Bothell and 14 are in the STEM fields. The School of STEM is committed to providing access to students from diverse backgrounds and underrepresented populations. For the 2015-2016 academic year, 33 percent of STEM students are from underrepresented populations or low-income families, and 30 percent of STEM students are women.

Students say the ranking illustrates how distinctive learning practices in the science-based programs, rigorous coursework and research contribute to success upon graduation, either in a career or graduate school.
