University Guidence

  1. Oct 5, 2015 #1

    I want to study engineering (Probably Biotech or IT) but find that undergraduate in most schools are very broad and steer away from specificity. What colleges (or recourses that can help me find the answer) do you know where I can study an engineering field almost purely?
    *Assuming second tier colleges or below (Georgia tech is a prospect but MIT seems like a very far reach for me)

    Also, any experience or knowledge of cool college opportunities to learn as much as possible would also be great.

    I would deeply appreciate any information on college programs.

    Thank you very much in advance.

    It's doubtful you'd find such a place in the US. Nearly every university requires students to take plenty of general electives outside of engineering.

    Within engineering, you'd be taking a variety of courses in different sub fields (maybe with the possibility of some concentration Junior/Senior year). There's a reason for this: if you want extreme specialization, you need to go to graduate school. What's more is that being exposed to many sub fields in undergrad helps you decide in what and how much you want to specialize.
