Ramesh’s Answer

An interesting CS Department Ranking is based on publication rate - https://csrankings.org/#/fromyear/2012/toyear/2022/index?all&us . This ranking will let you filter by sub-area such as AI/ML etc. The absolute rank is not particularly meaningful. Year to year the top 5 in US News ranking can permute etc.
As a future Undergraduate you might be well served by picking schools that (*) have majority of Undergraduate courses taught by full time faculty, (*) do research in areas that interest you, (*) have lab/research groups that accept undergraduate researchers.
There may be a Qualitative difference between say, rank 1-10, rank 11-20, etc. Schools ranked in the 50s do deliver a sound and well rounded Computer Science Education.

Aaron’s Answer

Hello Jeff,

There are a number of great colleges with outstanding computer programs. A few standouts are MIT, Stanford, UC Berkeley, University of Michigan. I have put a few links with a list of the top colleges for this field. These schools are very competitive so you will need a high GPA to get accepted in most cases.

Good luck to you.
