    I was taking a look at the admissions info of some colleges in physics/engineering so i thought it would be nice if we compiled a list of good universities (the big famous ones and the little ones)

    obvious ones:
    MIT- massachusets
    CIT aka CalTech- southern california
    UC Berkely i heard was pretty good- mid/upper california

    EDIT: i thought this was the academic/career forum someone please move this for me. please dont ban me

    "good" is much too subjective...
    It really depends on what specific criteria one is looking for.

    For me, good education gives you skills more than knowledge. For some others, perhaps good education is that which is well-recognised/held in high regard by employers, whether it is good by the other standard or not.
