Average scores are..
GRE Quantitative: About 780
GRE Analytical Writing: About 4.0
Average TOEFL (iBT): 100
Approximately 325 students are enrolled in our graduate program, with roughly 60 percent being doctoral candidates.
Student interns or co-ops earn, on average, 75 percent of a full-time engineering salary and gain valuable real-world experience.
Research Expenditure: $127.332 million PhDs granted (2017): 208 Graduate Acceptance Rate: 60% Undergrad Acceptance Rate: 72 % Undergrad Fees: (in-state/out-of-state): $11322/$28172 Graduate Fees: (in-state/out-of-state): $13000/$31000 Fulton Schools of Engineering have one of the largest Engineering programs

Research Expenditures : $78 million
Research Expenditure: $32.312 million PhDs granted (2017): 138 Graduate Acceptance Rate: 51% Undergrad Acceptance Rate: 87 % Undergrad Fees: (in-state/out-of-state): $52037/$52037 Graduate Fees: (in-state/out-of-state): $29000/$29000
These ranking have been compiled by graduateshotline using various resources available from the internet like NRC rankings, University websites, research expenditures, ipeds,asee etc. Importance has been given to research expenditures, acceptance rate (Engineering Programs with low acceptance rate are ranked higher), funding, salary, reputation and location. We also believe in average ranking in last 3-4 years (rather on yearly ranking).

Top Undergraduate Engineering Schools (Where PhD is not offered)
These are great schools and have a high reputation. They do not offer PhD degrees (only MS and BS). Getting in these schools is as tough as getting in Ivy League!
Harvey Mudd College
Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology
Cooper - Union
Which is top paying Engineering Major?
Petroleum Engineering is highest paying Engineering degree.
Georgia Institute of Technology is the largest college of Engineering in the US.
MIT is World's Best Engineering School: There is no cap on the number of graduate students admitted to MIT. Departments admit as many as they can support based on their research assistantship, teaching assistantship, and fellowship resources, as well as the number of faculties available to advise on research.
Most of the top schools (around 50%) are located in California and Tri-state region (New York, New Jersey, PA) we can add MA :) also. Also, most of the engineering jobs (especially related to Computers / finance / management / telecom / electronics) are in the same region (other good areas are North Carolina (Research Triangle Park), Chicago, Dallas/Austin/Houston and Seattle.
Is ranking important?
The rankings are important. It is important in getting a better job, better chances of getting promotions (while you are working). Getting a degree from Ivy League or a top college will always help in your entire career.
