UCI named one of top 25 cutting-edge schools by Kaplan

The latest edition of You Are Here: A Guide to Over 380 Colleges and Unlimited Paths to Your Future lists UC Irvine among the top 25 cutting-edge schools with an eye toward the future. The designation was awarded on the strength of student polling. Students going online to access information on Kaplan courses were asked what careers interested them or what they intended to pursue. Schools were then chosen on the basis of whether they offered an undergraduate program in that “hot” career. UCI was cited for its strength in biomedical engineering, earth science, environmental science and its interdisciplinary approach to learning.
