Re: Harvey Mudd too small for DN to notice?

If you notice, Greg Goodknight, this list shows the schools whose highest degrees are PhDs. I believe we will have a separate list coming up for the schools that I like to think are the best -- the ones that offer MS and BS as their highest degree. That's where Harvey Mudd -- a tremendous school -- fits in.

South Dakota School of Mines may not be in this Top 20 list, waterman2, but its students get the last laugh. As we've seen in earlier studies, mining engineering grads are among the highest paid.

"Mudd's ranking for percentage of alumni with PhD's is #2, just behind CalTech and just ahead of MIT, and by the rankings former Ed Sec'y William Bennett has been promoting, Mudd mid-career alumni salaries and the return on investment are both #1 in the nation."

Greg, I think now a day's producing more research outcomes and PhD's are main parameters for ranking than anything else.

"I agree with you as I do not know whether Harvard and Yale are one of the 20 engineering schools for undergraduates or not. It would be necessary to see the criteria these magazines and publications used for determining these lists. Several comments I read show that people are suspicious of bias in the results which is difficult to disprove unless the criteria is known. Regards."

Dodger2X, rating can be based on many parameters. So based on parameters college/university ratings can change.

Yes, the SNOW, eh?

And it's spelled 'Yooper'. Technically I'm not a Yooper, but 2 out of 3 of our kids are.

Ah, well – rankings are only as accurate as the judgments that made them.  Everything is fluid, and changes all the time.  MIT has solid integrity tho;   ---really surprised with its low rank in this study.

However, it isn't an "engineering school". Its target is to be liberal arts college of science, math and engineering and it seems to have done OK at that. Most liberal arts colleges forget that of the original seven liberal arts, four were what we would now consider to be math, science and engineering.

I agree, the Midwest schools were grossly under represented.  On any list purporting to rank America's top rated Engineering schools, Michigan Technological University should have been inlcuded.  Part of the problem is that no one even knows where MTU is, not even the people who live in Michigan, since many of them have never been in the UP (Upper Peninsula) and when they do think about the UP, all they can see is trees, waterfalls and wild animals.
