Here are the top 20 undergraduate engineering schools in the US, based on a compilation of a number of rankings. We looked at the following listings and created a compilation based on averages:
- The Times 2013-2014 Higher Education University Rankings for Engineering and Technology
- US News and World Report's Best Undergraduate Engineering Programs
- Engineering Monkey's 20 Best Engineering Schools in America
- Business Insider's World's Best Engineering Schools
We believe the compilation process gives the best overall view of which schools come out on top. Some were obvious. The top three appeared in the top three of all lists. One potential outlier is Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. While it only appeared on one of the lists, it was rated so highly on that list, it made it onto our top 20.
Check to see if your school showed up on the list, and tell us in the comments section below. In a future list, we'll look at the top graduate engineering programs.
