Ron’s Answer

Sounds like you better speak to a college counselor or teacher at your current school. Some basic questions to ask yourself:
Do I want to stay in state?
Do I want a large school?
How am I going to pay for this?


Then get on the websites for some colleges & universities that you are interested in attending.

Jesse,


Any college that you are interested in will have a website that will probably offer a catalog of all areas of study available at the institution. Additionally, contacting any of the admissions staff via the "contact us" section on the college's website is usually a surefire way to get your questions answered quickly, whether through email or over the phone.

Lori’s Answer

One other great resource you can use to get started are the annual rankings of schools put out by US News - https://www.usnews.com/best-colleges/rankings/engineering. Since I was interested in chemical engineering, I found this a great resource whenever I was in the process of searching for a good ChemE school. I was not sure at the time whether I would pursue graduate school or not, so I targeted schools that offered both. If you want a really specific degree (like Fire Protection or Architectural Engineering), that may really help to narrow down the number of schools since not many places offer accredited degrees in those specialty programs.

Once you have some schools you are interested in, as mentioned above your best bet is that school’s website!

It also may be a good idea to ask your teacher to pick at least one class to talk about it and cover some key features and special characteristics of various schools.
