Electrical Engineering Rankings – U.S. Universities

Here’s a ranking of Electrical Engineering programs of U.S. Universities.

I’m not a big fan of university rankings. But readers of this blog kept on requesting me for rankings and want to use the ranking system to select universities.

So here you go, a university ranking of electrical engineering programs.

If you are looking for specific areas such as VLSI, power systems, embedded systems, communication engineering, etc., I don’t have any list, but you can certainly browse within specific schools’ websites.

If you are looking for some forms of calculators, where you can enter your GRE score, academics, TOEFL, etc., and hit "submit" and it will generate a list of good universities with scholarship provisions, I can only say one thing – stop searching for them.

Believe me, you are not going to find it. It just simply doesn’t exist. The best way to find good schools is through the hard and right way – spend time visiting each school’s website and talk to current students there.

If you think that’s time consuming, then if you end up selecting wrong school, without proper information, your life will be at huge risk, endangering your parent’s money, career, job search, etc.

So I would do my own research before applying to schools, not after getting admissions. I guess you would also agree with me.

I remember one of our blog readers had admission from 2 universities. I suggested him to go to the University of Texas at Arlington, but he selected the other school.

Guess what? Within one semester, he ended up getting a transfer to a different school. I’m trying to make students’ (your) lives a bit easier.

I don’t agree to this university ranking, but I’ve got to provide what readers ask for. The following electrical engineering ranking list is published by U.S. News for 2007.
