Anyone one have a list of the best UNDERgraduate engineering schools? Or is it pretty much the same as the grad list?

USNews does publish that information. However, it is based on retention rates, student resources, etc. The most prestigious programs are a subjective matter.

when talking about the cutoff GPAs... does that mean they won't even look at any applicant who's worse than that ?

Does "Washington" in the rankings mean Washington University or University of Washington?

carsten was kidding. Those numbers are not "cutoff GPAs".

U Wash - Seattle

Hello everybody!

I was wondering if something like NRC Rankings exist also for European Grad Programs. In particular, I would really like to find a ranking (or merely a list) of the best Astronomy-Cosmology Grad Programs in UK-France-Spain-Italy-Portugal.

By the way, I suggest http://graduate-school.phds.org [Broken] for the rankings of Grad Programs in the US. It is very powerful and customizable by a lot of parameters (e.g. number of grants, tuition fee, number of scientific papers...).
Using my parameters for Astronomy, I got this ranking: http://graduate-school.phds.org/rankings/astronomy/rank?w2=0&w3=0&w1=5&w10=5&w7=5&w32=0&w12=0 [Broken] .

Thank you!

Cheers,

Guido

Hey guys,
I got Physics PhD offers from Purdue University, Stony Brook University, and Georgia Tech. Which one should I go for?
Thanks

MIT offers some options on Engineering and Technology

Engineering Systems - http://esd.mit.edu/academic.html
MIT’s Engineering Systems Division (ESD) represents a bold educational initiative aimed at establishing Engineering Systems as a field of study and advancing theory, policy and practice in this domain. Within MIT, ESD is an interdisciplinary academic unit that spans most departments within the School of Engineering, as well as MIT's School of Science, School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences, and MIT Sloan School of Management.

ESD brings together faculty and students with engineering and management professionals interested in researching large-scale, complex engineering systems. The division focuses on complex, technology-based products (i.e., automobiles, airplanes, etc.) and systems (i.e., transportation, telecommunications, energy, etc.) While technology is a fundamental part of these systems, so too are issues of managerial and, more generally, societal interactions.

Over 50 faculty and researchers, most holding dual or joint appointments within ESD and one of the aforementioned units, are devoted to teaching and research in the emerging field of Engineering Systems. Approximately 300 students are enrolled in ESD's five Master's programs, plus about 60 students in our Ph.D. program. All are working together to understand, model, and predict the behavior of technologically-enabled complex systems in order to help the engineering profession address contemporary critical issues and better serve humankind.

does anyone have any experience with compley systems? what universities offer good programs for that. the wiki article is still quite short, well, it's also more of an emerging field.

Don't know if anyone can use this, but I put together some resources on Astronomy graduate schools here: http://astro.ufl.edu/~emtilt/Graduate%20School%20Resources.html [Broken]

They don't exist, as far as I know.

Hello!
I'm at the end on my science/engineering bachelor degree from the Bucharest University and I'd like to go for my master's degree somewhere in Europe. Do you have any advice regarding where should I apply? The fields I'm interested in for my masters degree are cosmology and particle physics (by that I mean a lot of cosmology with the possibility of taking some particle physics courses). I have an average for my marks of about 9/10 (if that's relevant).
Thanks!

Sorry, I have no experience with European schools.

Is there any Accelerated BS or BEng Degree in Engineering which I can complete in 2 years. I am 29 & I have 4 years of Work experience in Project Management Office (IT). I am looking for a career in Engineering but does not have relevant qualification or experience.

Just got an email about this today, thought some of the NYC high school students (there seems to be a strong contingent) might be interested:
The American Museum of Natural History is offering a whole slew of after school programs. They also have a really cool (and respected) phd program in comparative biology so some of these programs may be a great place to start for someone interested in going down that road.

http://www.vcpc.univie.ac.at/~ian/hotlist/qc/research.shtml

Here is a list of (not sure how recent) all departments and institutions around the world who are working in quantum computing and quantum information science. It gives details about which department, what institution, and links to groups and papers I think as well. Great resource especially considering that QIS is such an interdisciplinary field..... you'll find physics departments as well as EE, math, and CS departments on there.

what does it take to get into a top 25 school?

Undergraduate or graduate?

Undergraduate - high SAT's & good recommends from h.s. faculty.

graduate - the best grad schools demand high college gpa's. However, I have also heard that if you have the money you can get in most places with good if not sterling grades.

I graduated in '62 & '64 so probably things have changed greatly since.

Anyone heard of a ranking list for mathematics REU program? I know Duluth and SMALL are the top 2, but after that it's all a blur.
