Hi Kathy:


I think you may be on the East Coast...guessing from your Avatar; :) check out this website that breaks down best Chemical Engineering Schools by value by state:


http://www.collegecalc.org/majors/chemical-engineering/


For New Jersey they list several -- from Rowan University at the least expensive...on up to Princeton and Stevens Institute.


Good luck!


Bridget

Lori’s Answer

Hi Kathy! Any engineering could be a great option and gives you a lot of flexibility in career choice. If you're not 100% decided on which branch, your best bet may be a school that is highly ranked in various engineering programs instead of focusing just on the best for your current intended major. Most likely this would be one of the A&M (agricultural & mechanical) colleges or Institutes of Technology (NJIT, Rose Hulman IT, etc). Personally this worked well for me and was how I ended up at Oklahoma State (originally Oklahoma A&M :-D ). I ended up staying with ChemE the whole way through my program, but it was nice to know that I had lots of great options if I decided to change my major. chemical-engineering school-selection
