ASU vs UF vs Northeastern for MS in Industrial Engineering

Hi everyone! I am an international student and intend to begin my graduate education in the US this fall. I need some guidance in university selection. I have been accepted to the MS in Industrial Engineering program at Arizona State University, the MS in Industrial and Systems Engineering program at University of Florida and the MS in Industrial Engineering program at Northeastern University. I have a few more decisions pending but I wish to decide between these three universities.

UF and ASU are ranked higher than Northeastern for Industrial Engineering but Northeastern is known for its Co-op program. I don't intend to pursue a PhD after my masters (at least right now) hence getting a good job post-graduation is important for me. I also value a good education and wish to go a school that is known for great professors and an engaging learning experience. UF initially seemed like the most "reputed" university out of the three (considering US News university rankings) but I have heard that getting internships and jobs while staying in Gainesville is a lot harder. Northeastern despite having apparently better job opportunities is also the costliest. ASU also seems like a good choice but the other two universities are ranked higher overall.

Any advice on which university I can choose would really help.

    @AnishRay - ASU's Fulton School of Engineering is pretty diverse. If, for some reason, you want to change majors, there will also be flexibility. They have a good support network to help students get internships. I am not as familiar with the IE major at ASU, so I don't have specific info for you. Also, check on some internships available right now to make sure you would be eligible. I am not sure how the international status will impact you. In the greater Phoenix area there are large companies that offer internships like Intel and UPS.
