SUMMARY

Studying Electrical and Electronics Engineering is not only a valuable choice, but commonly a required first step for scholars seeking to begin a career as an asic design engineer, a hardware design engineer, or an electronics design engineer. In fact, electrical and electronics engineering is somewhat popular ranking as the 30th most popular major. In the last year, there were 17,757 electrical and electronics engineering diplomas received. In-state tuition for electrical and electronics engineering at private schools is, on average, 4 times more costly than their public peers.

There are 382 schools that offer electrical and electronics engineering. This number of schools is fairly average in terms of the number of institutions which offer each degree. If you're looking to immerse yourself with other electrical and electronics engineering majors, look at schools in California which have more undergraduates admitted to electrical and electronics engineering than any other state. More generally, the top region to get a degree in electrical and electronics engineering is in the Far West region with University of California-Berkeley, University of California-San Diego, and University of Washington-Seattle Campus best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection of the best conference to study electrical and electronics engineering is the Big Ten Conference with University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Rutgers University-New Brunswick, and Ohio State University-Main Campus representing the conference. On that topic, our selection for the best school for electrical and electronics engineering is Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and here you can find our comprehensive list for the best colleges.

The objectively 'best' school is not necessarily the best school for every student. There are tons more perspectives to weigh when deciding on school. Features like campus amenities, transportation services, and food could alter your inclinations on which university to attend. Here at authority.org, we examined the pros and cons for you. If, as an example, you are interested in which electrical and electronics engineering school is home to the best college campus, the answer is Harvard University. If you are very interested in which university has the finest campus, we have an entire list dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through government databases, student reviews, professor reviews, and more in order to compare every major in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can find our comprehensive list for the colleges with the best student life&nbspand our pick for the university with the best student life for electrical and electronics engineering is Cornell University. Are you curious why? Continue scrolling to learn more about our top choices. Many of our decisions will probably surprise you.

If cost is a primary influence in your decision on where to go to college, you might consider avoiding Columbia University in the City of New York. Columbia University in the City of New York&nbspis our most expensive university for electrical and electronics engineering, at least for out of state students. That being said, we have an entire list of the most expensive&nbspuniversities that might put the expense of Columbia University in the City of New York&nbspinto perspective. Additionally, you may be interested to know that electrical and electronics engineering is the 46th most expensive program in the United States, with an average associated cost of $49,400. On a broader scale, the most costly state for electrical and electronics engineering on our list is Massachusetts at Boston University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology - the main schools in the state - of $54,720, $53,450, and $53,450. To zoom out even further, the most expensive region for electrical and electronics engineering is the New England region which is best demonstrated with Boston University with a cost of $54,720, Massachusetts Institute of Technology with a cost of $53,450, and Tufts University with a cost of $57,324.

Our cheapest region for electrical and electronics engineering is the Southeast region which is represented by Southern University and A & M College with a cost of $4,972, Citadel Military College of South Carolina with a cost of $75, and Florida Polytechnic University with a cost of $3,152. In better news, the most affordable college for electrical and electronics engineering is Purdue University-Main Campus. Our entire list of the most affordable universities can be found here.

In-state students can anticipate paying in the neighborhood of $10,600 for a degree in electrical and electronics engineering. The cost swells by a lot to an average of $25,500 for an out-of-state public-school student. Our pick for the college representing the best value for electrical and electronics engineering: Massachusetts Institute of Technology. On this page you will see our comprehensive list on the colleges we see as being the best value&nbspoverall. That being said, this list is based on the assumption that you are an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when in-state tuition is considered, but as we do not know what state(s) you might qualify for in-state tuition, we are approaching this discussion through out-of-state tuition costs.

Earnings for electrical and electronics engineering students range widely, but within two years leaving college graduates will typically make around $62,000. While there is much variation in earnings; top earners can make up to $106,100. Right out of university, the minimum earning positions within the electrical and electronics engineering field earn $36,000, which is an alright wage. The top earning grads for electrical and electronics engineering come from Massachusetts Institute of Technology&nbspand if you are looking for schools with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The prevailing diversity of electrical and electronics engineering is pretty high, being in the 76th percentile of majors nationally. The school with the highest composite diversity for electrical and electronics engineering is Massachusetts Institute of Technology&nbspand here you can find our comprehensive list for the colleges which have the most diversity. The overall financial diversity of Electrical and Electronics Engineering only is within the 33rd percentile of all majors. Racial diversity is actually greater, in the 84th percentile. Students who are not white, black, latino, or asian compose the largest proportion, 45%, of those studying electrical and electronics engineering. Additionally, 81% of students pursuing an electrical and electronics engineering major are men.

The median ranking for electrical and electronics engineering professors is 3.9 stars, a ranking that is 2% worse than the average score for every major; which is a subpar ranking. If you want to find the most popular electrical and electronics engineering professor nationally, consider looking up Christof Teuscher from Portland State University. This might come as a shock, but the best ranked professors for electrical and electronics engineering by student are at Portland State University. As we including data other than just rankings we find that the university possessing comprehensively the best professors for electrical and electronics engineering is Massachusetts Institute of Technology. One can find more detail on our evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, as well as many of the best instructors nationwide.

Finally, the hardest school to get into for electrical and electronics engineering is Stanford University. While we are unsure why you would be interested, we do have a detailed page for the hardest colleges to get into. Although, here at Authority we hope you understand that considering the education process with a perspective only formed from superlatives might cause problems. We at Authority hope you read our other pages on individual colleges and peruse a couple of our helpful background 'blog posts' on beneficial details to look out for as your school search continues.
