I question the choice of UIUC over UIC. 

Also looks like a top 20 most expensive engineering colleges.

Rob--very interesting list. Unless I missed the count, there were six (6) schools from California, four (4) Ivy League schools and three (3) schools in the Southeast/Southwestern part of our country.  My school did not make the cut but it really never does.  It's always good to see how engineering departments at the various universities "stack up".   The good one seem to remain on the list year after year but that is to be expected.  Excellent post.

Midwestern schools?

The midwest seems to be slightly under-represented in this list.  Out of the 20 schools on the list, I only counted 4 in the midwest (Purdue, Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin).  In contrast, there were 6 in California alone.

Also, only a handful of the schools on the list (RPI, MIT, Georgia Tech) are what I would consider "engineering schools," i.e. schools where engineering is the primary focus.  They may have engineering programs, but I wouldn't consider Harvard or Princeton to be "engineering schools."

I'll freely admit I'm a little sore that my alma matter, IIT, didn't make this list. It made USA Today's list of top ten engineering colleges this year.
