it depends on what you mean by best and most experience for you as it was mentioned in another answer. I'm assuming you are looking best place for gaining knowledge and acquiring skills. for that you want to look for quality faculty who are willing to mentor students, great laboratory and learning facility and active student organizations. these are just some other factors to consider that are not only at big name engineering schools like MIT and Georgia Tech, but also can be found in some smaller but great universities

Follow this link:

It will give you a list of best US school based on engineering. And you can sort out the schools based on your area of interest like, mechanical, computer, etc.

Few things to look for based on my experience.
1.) How much money you be able to spend on your undergrad degree? In case you won't get any kind of assistance or financial aide.
2.) Where you stand based on your knowledge and skill set in terms of SAT,ACT etc. scores? Best of the best means very low acceptance rate and high percentile scores in tests and high GPA in school.
3.) What kind of extra circular activates you are engaged in?
4.) Why you want to go to best of the best? Like in my case I just want to be engineer to make my living and to design new things? So I just went to normal state college which was good in terms what I was looking for and in my range in terms of tuitions. But was not best of the best. Hope you got my point. Again its just me .

Hi Aurek! You've asked a pretty difficult question, as "best" can mean different things to different people. Do you think "best" would be graduating debt-free, or going to the most prestigious university regardless of cost? Is "best" having small classes or having the latest and greatest lab facilities? Only you can decide what "best" means to you.

That said, there are a few factors that will help you start your career after graduating that you should consider. You should definitely seek program that is ABET accredited to ensure your degree is recognized by as many employers as possible. Another factor may be where you see yourself living after college, as companies often recruit from colleges in the same geographic region - this isn't always the case, but many people end up staying in the same area they went to college because they were able to be employed there. If you look at out-of-state universities, seriously consider whether you would be missing out on in-state tuition rates or scholarship opportunities.
