Tim’s Answer

I have a senior in high school right now who is graduating in June and so we have been able to look at A LOT of colleges. Based on my college experience, talking to other parents, and going through the experience with my own daughter, I will say to find a school that you think you will like and feel comfortable at. If that is one of the schools that is highly rated by third party groups, great, if not, that's OK. The key is to want to be at the school and feel like you are going to like being there. Purdue, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech, NC State, RIT, and Carnegie Mellon are all really good schools that we have looked at and heard good things about. Good luck

I don't have specific colleges to recommend, but want to share some considerations that I had in mind while going through my own college selection process. First, the engineering discipline is so vast that you should narrow down a few key areas of study that interest you most. College quality can vary greatly based on disciplines, so this will help you focus on colleges that are most relevant to you. Second, look for colleges that balance the academics with practice. Certain colleges prepare you more academically while others give you a chance to experience the real world through internships, in-school projects, joint industry project partnerships, and consulting assignments. Third, visit your short-listed colleges and talk to faculty and students. Start with the admissions department and look for college events to meet people. Understand the culture of the college and see if that fits you well. Does the place foster creativity and teamwork? Are the teachers approachable? Where have the alumni of the college ended up in their professional career? Answers to some of these and more such questions can help you find your right college.


thank you very much Sharmila R.

Gregory’s Answer

I went to Texas A&M University and loved it. They have many disciplines of study, like Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Civil Engineering. But I also enjoyed the deep traditions of the school and the students are very friendly. When looking for a university, you should see how many students they graduate each year, what they are researching, and what they publish. You should also visit the school to see if you like the other programs available to you. One of the best engineering schools is MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology).

Hi Ryan,


I don't know much of engineering programs, I was computer science major then a design major.

But I can offer you a article that has a list from a web page.


There are many areas of expertise in engineering. Finding the emphasis is a challenge.

Obviously, the expensive schools are the top tier. If you are looking for affordable and not private university, you have to do extensive and it depends which state you are planning to study on the program.
