Good business and engineering schools

edited June 2011 in Engineering Majors
What schools are good for business and engineering. I'm very interested in both and while my main focus plans to be civil engineering I'd like to minor or even double major in it. I know michigan offers it. I also plan to attend penn state erie this fall but may transfer after a year as tuition is expected to shoot up.

    Lehigh. It has a great engineering and business school and even offers a integrated business and engineering degree IBE. It's also easy to minor in business.

    Clarkson University in Upstate NY has a great combo of both. I know you can double major in business and engineering, get an Engineering and Management degree (a combo of both, its really popular at Clarkson), or you can get a 5yr engineering degree and a masters.

    Also, while the cost of Clarkson may be high, they are known for their generous financial aid given.

    There's a certain school in Cambridge MA that is known for having decent engineering and business.

    U of I is top-ranked in both.
  • UncannyCrayonUncannyCrayon Posts: 212Registered User Junior Member
    U of I has a top 5 engineering program, and the business school has a lower acceptance rate!

    ^ And just so you know, those previous two mean Illinois when they say U of I. Sometimes people forget that there are 2 other states that start with the letter "I".

    What's out of state tuition like at illinois?
  • boneh3adboneh3ad Posts: 5,134Registered User Senior Member
    Pretty nasty as far as state schools go. I don't recall exactly what it is now but it is at least in the $30k's.
  • UncannyCrayonUncannyCrayon Posts: 212Registered User Junior Member
    Yeah OOS for U of I is pretty bad. Room and board together is into the 40k range.
  • CGerestiCGeresti Posts: 263Registered User Junior Member
    Michigans about the same oos as u of I right? I think texas is a little less.
  • boneh3adboneh3ad Posts: 5,134Registered User Senior Member
    Michigan is a tad more and Texas a tad less, I believe.
