Penn State Awards Most STEM Degrees In The Nation, Forbes Finds

Penn State has awarded the most undergraduate degrees in STEM fields from 2019 to 2020, according to a recent Forbes article.

Over that timeframe, Penn State awarded 6,473 degrees.

The other schools in the top five included UC Berkeley, Texas A&M, Arizona State, and Penn State’s Big Ten rival, Purdue. These schools each awarded more than 4,000 STEM degrees from 2019 to 2020.

The rest of the list included other Big Ten schools, such as Michigan, Ohio State, Wisconsin, Maryland, and Minnesota. Big Ten schools made up 40% of the top 20 schools in Forbes’ findings.

Forbes’ data comes from the Intergraded Postsecondary Education Data Systems (IPEDS) figures as summarized in Higher Ed Data Stories, which allows you to search for schools that produce the most graduates in a large list of majors, such as humanities, social sciences, and business. Penn State, Arizona State, Texas A&M, and Ohio State also appeared in the top twenty business programs around the United States.

2019-2020 is the most recent year that has such data available, so keep an eye out for this list again in the future.
