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.

      Ranking wise
      1 RIT
      2 NJIT

  37. Hi! I completed my Bachelor of engineering under Electronics & Communication discipline by the academic year 2010. Currently, Im aiming to do MS in Signal Processing. I've registered for GRE test on nov 3rd. Since i did a GRE-crash course recently at Princeton review, a chennai based coaching institute, Im preparing for the exam with the materials provided by the institute only. Whereas, i see many people strongly suggesting "Barrons GRE guide" when it comes to preparing for the exam. Will the material i use affect my GRE score?

    Also, i would like to know the adversities of taking up GRE exam by november month instead of the usually advised October month.

    I have shortlisted around 11 universities till now, wherein i would like to pursue my MS, and i have observed their websites as well for the details regarding the application process. But i find it difficult to contact any alumni or currently enrolled students of those universities. I believe that people studying/studied there could give me a satisfactory real time picture of these universities. So kindly suggest some website links through which i could contact the alumni of Universities in US.

  38. hi ,

    i have completed my engg in E & C with 69.78 % , will be writing my gre in nov 15 for the fall addmission.I know i have to select my own universities, but i just wanted to know others choice and why they have chosen it. this way many will benifit from it. just write your choice..

    my specialisation would be vlsi/embedded syatems.

    some of the thing i have found out:

    1) select universities that are there in east of USA( basically i am looking for universities from USA .

    2)the overall ranking will be of not much use..but still..

    3)if you study in a university of a state for example Texas.. you might probably

    be placed in Texas Instruments..

  47. Hi,

    I have got admits from :

    Univ of texas Dallas

    Illinois insti of technology, chicago

    California State Univ, Sacramento..

    for doing MS in VLSI..

    Need inputs to choose the best one out of these to do my masters..

      1. Hi,

        I-20's for the 2 univs indicate the following tution fee:

        UTDallas- 17k$/year
        CSU Sacramento-12.5k$/year (+ a partial scholarship grant- 1.112k$ for 1st year)

        I havent gone through IIT though (heard there is not a good option).

        1 more advantage of going for CSU is that i might get intership after 1 year (for there are a lot of opportunities in california).

        but education-wise am not sure how best it is as compared to UTD.

        Pls suggest.

  56. I have B.S Electrical Engineering Technology and want to pursue my master of Engineering with focus in Power Electronics. What's the best University School in the USA for Power Electronics?

    1. My field is Analog ICs, but I did my BS at Illinois Institute of Technology and I think they are really good for power electronics. They seem to be well funded and pretty diverse in research.

      Georgia Tech has a really advanced Analog IC -> power electronics program in the GTAC. GT is a top-ten school (I think underrated) so they probably have a lot of other things going on in power electronics.

  68. This is Praveen from Chennai. I am currently doing my final year engineering in Electronics and Instrumentation discipline. Am yet to take up my GRE exam which is in Sep 09. I am interested in topics like automation, process control, biomedical instrumentation and other allied courses related to instrumentation with a slice of electronics. Also I am a computer geek and love programming and stuff which I believe will come into play irrespective of the discipline I take up.

    Considering the above, could you suggest me the possible disciplines that I could take up for masters? I am sure I have to narrow down to something that comes under EE. But am really drawing a blank beyond that point.

    Also am desperate to know the list of universities that will fit into my needs. I have surfed several "rankings sites" and blog sites randomly and visited some college sites. But still I am not able to clearly focus on the 4 universities whose list I need to take along while writing the GRE exam. These are the stuff that are really vague Pls help me out by giving a list of disciplines that I could pursue and a list of mid-rated universities that cater to my preferences. My powerprep score is 1290 (a replica of actual GRE score)

    Best regards……

    1. Thanks HSB for the reply. I will follow your advice and try to narrow down to about 10 universities. Will get back when I need further help in zeroing in on the 4 univ.. Hope that would be okay!! Thanks and best regards,

      I'm looking for the exact same thing that u have mentioned and i'm totally lost! Have u found any unvs yet?

  70. Hello, my daughter's a senior in high school and interested in attending college for mechanical or electrical engineering. We’re located in Georgia and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on the best colleges to attend (in or out of state). Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.


    1. @Attending schools in Georgia will get you In-State fees. SO, try to get into Georgia Tech or other universities sin that system. Electrical and Mechanical engineering are good options, but she can consider Computer Science and Computer Engineering too.
      Computer Engineers are paid better than Mechanical and electrical.
