    Not sure where you are getting your facts but just consider them equal. Especially for computer engineering. This is more of a fit question. Both amazing schools with both name brand world wide. If GT is significantly cheaper then just do that. GT is known for more of a grind. Michigan has more leeway to add minors, change majors is relatively easy. Both campuses have different feels to them. Opportunities will be identical.
