America’s Best Undergraduate Engineering Colleges
In addition to being skilled in the mechanical, chemical, and biological sciences, engineers today must also have the business and communication skills to put their abilities to work in addressing society’s increasingly complex issues. Access to an undergraduate liberal arts curriculum can help make that happen. Live In America EB-5 has taken the rankings of four respected evaluators – U.S. News & World Report, Business Insider, TopUniversities.com, and Niche – and made a ranking based on the combined rankings of the four evaluators for each of the twenty or more various schools they assessed. Each evaluator had its own criteria for making its choices, some of the schools showing up on all four lists. Each of the four, however, gave particular weight to how many student engineers in a graduating class had jobs waiting for them based on internships, interviews and acquired skills.
The overall top ten schools from the combined evaluation process are listed below. Information and background on each school, including figures on tuition and financial aid, can be read by clicking on its name.
