1: Stanford University
Stanford-Yet another well known school, Stanford is listed as the second best engineering and technical school in the nation by employers. This yet is another great school with tough competition for enrollment. In fact, Stanford has a lower admission rate of 7.6 % in 2009, which is lower than MIT! This college has a student to professor ratio of 7 with about 2,300 first year students in 2009. Students wanting to attend Stanford should also have high academic standing and exercise unique qualities that set them apart from other applicants.

2: University of California Berkley
UC Berkley- With a much bigger campus and class size, UC Berkley offered admission to almost 13,000 freshman students this year. Although their class size is nearly double that of Stafford and quadruple MIT’s, in an all around perspective, UC Berkley still has a relatively small student to faculty ratio of almost 16 to 1. This higher ratio also means higher admission rates, as UC Berkley accepted 25.6% of their applicants this year. Students wanting to attend UC Berkley should also have high academic standing, and possess qualities that make them stand out compared to other students.

Decisions to Make
If you plan on applying to top technical colleges, be sure to apply to many, as they are highly competitive. It is also to keep other factors in mind when choosing a college. Going to a top college could mean more competitiveness within the school, and a rigorous course load. Here are the other seven universities that made the top ten technical universities according to QS.

4. California Institute of Technology (CalTech)

5. Carnegie Mellon University (CMU)

6. Georgia Institute of Technology

7. University of California Los Angeles (UCLA)

8. University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign

9. University of Michigan

10. Cornell University

Students should feel at home at the college of their choice, and be sure it is the correct school of choice financially, and emotionally. Whatever you chose, work hard, and try to have some fun!
