Top Electrical Engineering Schools

mitHere are some of the top electrical engineering schools in the world:

The world famous MIT is a private institution located in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Established in 1861, the 160 acre campus sits directly across the Charles River from Boston. Freshman students are required to live on campus, yet most students choose to continue living on campus for all four years. MIT offers four undergraduate degree programs as well as a master of engineering degree.

Here are the degrees are offered upon completion of the different electrical engineering programs:

  • Electrical Science and Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
  • Computer Science and Engineering
  • Computer Science and Molecular Biology
  • Master of Engineering Program
  • The Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department (EECS) is the largest department at the college, and over 300 students spend much of their time here. There are four major affiliate labs that the faculty use to help teach their students, thus impacting technology industries as well as related news and greater education worldwide. EECS has been involved with the development of the World Wide Web through Sir Tim Berners-Lee. It has also had a hand in the conversion of TVs regarding analog to digital capabilities through Jae S. Lim. There are many more important discoveries found and developed at EECS.

    According to US News rankings, MIT is the top electrical engineering school in the world. A US News survey also reported a 98% approval rating from MIT freshman. In 2011, only 9.7% of applicants were accepted to MIT. The engineering department is ABET, Inc. accredited.

    stanford huang Stanford University is located 35 miles south of San Francisco, in Stanford, California. The university was founded in 1885 and sits on a vast 8, 180 acre campus. Stanford University’s Electrical Engineering Department had its beginning in the Mechanical Engineering Catalog in 1892, with the first electrical engineering degree being given in 1894.

    The university offers students three different engineering degree options:

  • Engineer’s Degree
  • Master of Science
  • Doctor of Philosophy
  • Stanford’s School of Engineering has over 80 labs, affiliate programs, and centers to help students in their research efforts. It has 245 faculty members and over 4, 500 students. Stanford offers students a wide range of varying organizations that they can join for fun and for further education.

    Stanford University’s electrical engineering program is rated #2 in the world by U.S. News. Slightly more than 7% of applicants are accepted, according to US News. Former famous alumni include: former U.S. President Herbert Hoover, Tiger Woods, Sigourney Weaver, and John Elway. 15% of graduates received their degrees from the engineering program. Stanford University’s engineering program is accredited by ABET, Inc.

    UC Berkeley Engineering The University of California at Berkeley is a public college that was founded in 1868. It overlooks the San Francisco Bay on 1, 232 acres of land and guarantees two years of housing to new freshman students. Students can earn either a Bachelor of Science or a Bachelor of Arts degree within the Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS) Department.

    These programs include:

  • Electrical and Computer Engineering
  • EECS Honors Degree Program
  • Master of Science Degree Programs
  • Double Majors
  • Materials Science and Engineering
  • Nuclear Engineering
  • Cambridge University Department of EngineeringAlthough there are many, one famous alumnus from the University of California at Berkeley is Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, who received a Bachelor of Science degree in 1986.

    US News ranks the University of California at Berkeley a 79 out of 100. Around 26.7% of applicants are accepted and the student to faculty ratio is 17:1. The University of California at Berkeley is an ABET, Inc accredited school.

    The University of Cambridge is one of the world’s oldest universities, founded by a group of scholars back in 1209. It is located in Cambridge, England. The university is made up of 31 autonomous colleges. There are six schools, one of which is the Technology school.

    The Technology school contains several different degree pathways, including:

  • Engineering
  • Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology
  • Computer Laboratory
  • Judge Business School
  • Cambridge Programme for Sustainable Leadership
  • The electrical engineering program is available at all colleges. It takes four years to complete the program, which accepts students from all over the world.

    There are no available US News rankings for the University of Cambridge. 331 applicants were accepted in 2012, according to the University’s website. Graduates from the university have accumulated 65 Nobel Prizes.

    The University of Oxford – located in Oxford, England, has a long, storied history, which is believed to date back as far as 1049. The Department of Engineering Science at Oxford itself dates back to 1908, and is the sole engineering department in the UK offering accredited coursework in every major branch of engineering.

    U of Phoenix..no rising from the ashes!

    by pun4fun

    The problem as I see it with University of Phoenix is that it started out as a lower level correspondence school and basically still is...not only that, now that all of the top Colleges and Universities offer online classes and AA or BA degrees, the University of Phoenix is still a BIG joke to employers!
    Take Los Angeles for example...UCLA, USC, offers online classes, the deal is if you enroll in the online classes for the degree...you will graduate with your class and a real degree..from a kown school with real credits!
    So ask yourself... $3,000 a year for a U of Phoenix education or $3,000 a year from, lets say, UCLA Online Classes, a real BA and walking on graduation day with your class ON CAMPUS with no difference n your diploma whether you did it online, weekend, a...

      Jan 21, 2009 by Alex | Posted in Engineering

      This is my senior year and I've decided to go on to a nearby community college before transferring to a technical institute. This college offers a few courses such as Information Technology, Cisco Networking, Computer Science, and so on, but I am thinking of going to Electronic/Computer Engineer …er, I am not too confident of my math skills. Due to a school transfer in the middle of last year, I have somehow remained at a 10th grade math level.
      How will my mathematical background affect me?
      What can I do now to start my career choice?
      What specific resources can I use?

      • Dear Nemo,
        I am graduated from Telecommunication/Electronic Engineering
        University in Indonesia. I would answer your second question first, about career choice. Life motivated by how much money we could earn if we are graduated later. I do not know where you live, I predict in
        that could lighten your fee, keep browsing in internet. So many
        scholarships offered, especially for youth like you.
        Thank you very much Nemo, see you later as great technology person, as person who prospers your country. May God realizes those.
