    UIUC EECS is very close in curriculum and content, and research options, to MIT EECS. However the student body
    at UIUC is a wider range of abilities than MIT's students.
    Cornell Engineering is known to be truly difficult, as is Penn Engineering, and Princeton Engineering. Some students find Princeton to be so difficult there is a significant drop out of their engineering over to sciences.

    Caltech is the top for rigor in math requirements for all majors, including analysis imbedded in the calculus class in the very first semester. The Quarter calendar is also very intense, but its not really more material than MIT's or Cornell's tough semester sequences in Physics. MIT gives a few more choices in math and physics, for rigor as well.
