Top 7 Ivy League Colleges for Engineering

Ivy League colleges are the epitome of academic excellence and social elitism, and here we’re writing about top 7 Ivy League colleges for engineering. Well, it’s not exactly a top list since there are no more than eight Ivy League members in total: Brown University, Columbia University, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Harvard University, the University of Pennsylvania, Princeton University, and Yale University. It’s more about singling out that one with a slightly less prestigious engineering program. Not to say that it’s a bad program – only lacking some depth compared to other Ivy League colleges. And even that is by a whisker. Furthermore, enrolling at an Ivy League engineering program might put you at a disadvantage since Ivy League colleges never really exhibited a strong engineering tradition. You can take a look at this list of top 20 engineering schools in America in 2015, and see how some of Ivy League colleges (those that have made the list) compare to other top engineering programs across the country.

Our methodology for ranking these colleges comes from comparing other sources like U.S. News & World Report and Startclass. This means that the best college has been awarded overall score of 100 while all others have been ranked according to a percentage of the best school’s score. As for criteria taken into account when calculating these percentages, U.S. News & World Report factors quality assessment, student selectivity, faculty resources, and research activity – all of which are further divided into additional categories and weigh different percentages of the total score. Startclass, on the other hand, has a somewhat different scoring system but still accounts most of the subcategories as the aforementioned agency, including acceptance rates, enrollment, research expenditure, etc. We have taken both sources into consideration, then calculated the overall position and finally delivered top 7 Ivy League colleges for engineering.
