According to the Best Colleges Online index, Westminster College ranked at number 13 in the nation for being one of the “most technologically advanced small colleges.”
The mission of Best Colleges Online is to provide expert insights into the best accredited universities in the United States.
“What’s new today is practically obsolete tomorrow, making keeping up with current advancements a very real challenge,” according to The Best Colleges Online ranking website. “To compete in a global marketplace, students need an education that will equip them with the 21st century skills that are in demand.”
Based on a point system, the ranking measures the following factors: awards and recognitions related to technology, progressive science/technology degrees, advanced on-campus technology offerings, high-level technology internships, technology research funding, technology-related study abroad opportunities/partnerships in technology, connections with local community technology experts, and various “wow” factors or unique programming that stood out.
“To aid prospective students in their pursuit of a cutting-edge school that doesn’t leave them lost in the crowd, we’ve researched hundreds of small colleges to determine which ones have stayed ahead of the pack,” the website continued.
