College Crunch 20 Best Schools for Engineering Majors in 2009

For the full story, read the article here:

Keep in mind, I'm an MIT computer science graduate with a lot of brothers/sister who went to Stanford.

Here is the list
1. Cooper Union (Cooper who???)
2. Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo (Well known in CA, but no much on east coast)
3. Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology (Very hard to get into school nobody's heard of)
4. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Number 4? You kidding??)
5. United States Military Academy (A good engineering background, but #5? Great place to be a history making general if you like management)
6. Stanford University (Yeesh, should be #2 after MIT)
7. United States Naval Academy (Same as West Point, if you want to be Top Gun or captain a Burke destroyer to shoot down ICBM, this is for you)
8. University of California, Berkeley (Hippie heaven is also top geek school)
9. Georgia Institute of Technology
10. Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering (These kids are smarter than MIT, CalTech east)
11. Cornell University (Stanford east, study in a National Park)
12. Bucknell University (what?)
13. California Institute of Technology (These are the original uber geeks that make MIT grads look normal and well balanced, but they're better in pure science and math)
14. University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
15. Villanova University - With 42% admission rate you actually have a chance of getting in because being smart is both neccesary and sufficient, where in the Ivy Leage you've also got to be incredibly lucky to beat lottery odds.
16. United States Air Force Academy (great if you want a supersonic office delivering boom a short flight away)
17. University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
18. Purdue University, West Lafayette (I still don't know where this place is. The chicken is probably good)
19. Carnegie Mellon University (This is the place we heard about at MIT if you like Pittsburgh)
20. University of Maryland
