SUMMARY

Majoring in Engineering Technologies is a valuable choice and often a mandatory first step for students planning to pursue a career as a lead mechanical engineer, an equipment engineer, or a computer aided design engineer. Interestingly, engineering technologies is of average popularity coming in at the 29th most popular major. Last academic year alone, there were 19,475 engineering technologies degrees conferred. In-state tuition for engineering technologies at private colleges is, on average, 3.9 times more spendy than their public fellows.

There are 404 colleges which offer engineering technologies. 404 institutions is on par with other majors offered in the United States. If you are looking to surround yourself with other engineering technologies undergraduates, consider colleges in New York which have the most students admitted to engineering technologies annually. More generally, the best region to study engineering technologies is in the Southeast region with East Carolina University, ECPI University, and Columbia Southern University best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick for the best conference to study engineering technologies is the Big Ten Conference with Michigan State University, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and Purdue University-Main Campus representing the conference. From our list of the best colleges, our choice for the best college for engineering technologies is Stanford University.

The objectively 'best' school might not actually be the 'best' school for you. There can be tons of factors to think about when deciding on institution. Things like campus amenities, transportation services, and food could sway your inclinations on which school to attend. Here at authority.org, we have examined the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you are interested in which engineering technologies school has the best campus, the answer is New York University. If you are very interested in which college is home to the finest campus, we have a whole list dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through government databases, professor reviews, student reviews, and more so we can compare each major in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can find our well researched list for the colleges with the best student life and from that list, our choice for the school with the best student life for engineering technologies is Washington University in St Louis. Curious why? Keep scrolling to find out more about Authority's top selections. Some of our picks will probably surprise you.

If expense is a major influence in your decisions, you might consider avoiding University of Southern California. University of Southern California appears to be our most expensive university for engineering technologies, at least for out of state enrollment. That being said, we have a page for the most expensive colleges that could put the expense at University of Southern California into perspective. Additionally, you may be interested to know that engineering technologies is the 197th most expensive major in America, with an average expense of $30,000. To zoom out a little, the most costly state for engineering technologies in the country is New Jersey with expenses at the main three schools equalling $41,154 at Fairleigh Dickinson University-Metropolitan Campus, adding up to $30,160 at New Jersey Institute of Technology, and tuition and fees amounting to $30,160 at Stevens Institute of Technology. To zoom out even further, the most costly region of the country for engineering technologies is the New England region which is best demonstrated with University of Hartford with a cost of $39,220, Berklee College of Music with a cost of $44,360, and Wentworth Institute of Technology with a cost of $34,970.

Our cheapest region for engineering technologies is the Plains region which is represented by Bemidji State University with a cost of $7,858, Northwest Missouri State University with a cost of $10,738, and Grantham University with a cost of $7,080. More optimistically, the most affordable university for engineering technologies is California Polytechnic State University-San Luis Obispo. Our comprehensive list of the most affordable schools can be explored here.

In-state students can expect to pay around $9,100 for a degree in engineering technologies. That price swells substantially to an average of $19,400 for the out-of-state public-school undergraduate. Our choice for the college constituting the best value for engineering technologies: Stanford University. Here you can see our comprehensive list of the colleges we see as being the best value in general. Do know, this discussion is based on the assumption that you are an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when in-state tuition is considered, but we do not know in which states any one student has residency.

Earnings for engineering technologies majors can cover a wide range, but two years after completing the major students will typically earn around $64,700. There can be a lot of variation in earnings; top positions can enjoy pay up to $98,600. Right out of college, the lowest earning opportunities within the engineering technologies field earn $42,100, which isn't that bad. The highest earning grads for engineering technologies studied at Stanford University and if you are looking for colleges with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The prevailing diversity of engineering technologies ranks solid, falling within the 55th percentile of all programs. The university with the most composite diversity for engineering technologies is New York University and here you can find our comprehensive list of the colleges which have the most diversity. The financial diversity of Engineering Technologies only sits within the 78th percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is even lower in the 61st percentile. White undergraduates compose the largest share at 57% of scholars majoring in engineering technologies. Additionally, 82% of undergraduates pursuing an engineering technologies degree are men.

The median score of engineering technologies professors is 3.8 stars, a ranking which is 5% worse than the median for every major; which is a subpar score. If you want to find the most popular engineering technologies instructor nationally, consider looking up Shin Liu from Rio Hondo College. It may be a shock, but the top rated professors of engineering technologies according to students are found at Arizona State University-Tempe. If we consider data other than basic rankings it becomes clear that the university possessing the best professors for engineering technologies is Stanford University. One can find an explanation of our evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, along with many of the top examples of professors in the U.S.

Finally, the most difficult college to get into for engineering technologies is Stanford University. While we are unsure why you would be interested, we have a comprehensive list of the hardest colleges to get into. With that said, here at Authority we hope you believe that considering academics with context mainly formed from superlatives can cause problems. We encourage you to read our other pages on individual colleges and read some of Authority's informative background pages on useful details to look out for as your college search continues.
