Questions about Colleges

  1. Jul 8, 2005 #1
    Besides the obvious one MIT, what other colleges would you recommend for the following majors

    Nuclear Engineering
    Aeronautical Engineering

    And I would also like to know how good Purdue is in those majors. Thanks in advance. :smile:

    Georgia Tech is ranked right behind MIT in Aerospace Engineering, and that's probably due a lot to name recognition.

    I am a nuclear engineer at Georgia Institute of Technology but I cannot say much about the program because I have only finished my freshman year. I can say that the nuclear engineering program at Massachusetts Institute of Technology is only ranked high because of the graduate program there, it might be better to go to Texas A&M for undergraduate, which I believe is ranked second.

    BTW how good are the opportunities for the Nuclear Engineering in the next 20 years, and what exactly do you do after the college?

    CU - Boulder is a good option for aero too.

    not as highly ranked as a private school, but one of the best options for the price.
