Stanford vs Berkeley vs CalTech vs MIT for Engineering

edited June 2012 in Engineering Majors
Who has the best program for EE if I want to get a great education, be in high demand from employers and make a lot of money? A simple ranking would be great, who is #1 (best), who would be #4 (last). Adding a comment or two would be even better.

Here's the list in no special order. Cut and paste. Thanks.

Berkeley

Stanford

CalTech

MIT

    joemama,

    It's hard to say especially when they all have similar prestige (except Berkeley).

    To split hair, I would say:
    1. MIT
    2. Stanford/Caltech
    3. Berkeley

    you better get into one of those schools...otherwise your life is over...I mean unless you graduate from those school...prepare to move to new york and live under a bridge. good luck.

    I think Caltech is really underrated. They go much more in depth than MIT.

    MIT!

    No, I'm just saying that cuz I'm going there. Sorry.

    To be completely and truly honest, I reeeally don't think it matters. Like at all. With the schools you're talking about, they're all of a super-impressive caliber, so you'd be more than fine with any of them. I suggest figuring out which one you'd actually enjoying living at for four years.

    I'd have to say:

    1. MIT
    2. Stanford
    3. Cal Tech
    4. UC Berkeley

    Make sure you apply to all of them if you haven't already because they are all very hard to get into.
  • sleepybunnysleepybunny Posts: 142Registered User Junior Member
    are all the rankings above for EE only or engineering in general?
  • rtkysgrtkysg Posts: 598Registered User Member
    for both :)
  • needhelp06needhelp06 Posts: 337Registered User Member
    are these rankings undergrad/grad/both?
  • rtkysgrtkysg Posts: 598Registered User Member
    I think it's more for undergrad. IMO for grad:
    1. MIT
    2. Stanford/Berkeley/Caltech (depends a lot on your specialization)
  • joemamajoemama Posts: 554Registered User Member
    Grad rankings are welcome. Just list separately so there's no confusion.
    Thanks.
