I compiled list of all the rankings, and of the ones I was interested in (I didnt include some schools like Harvard, UVA, etc.)
Here were stand-outs:
I know UC Berkeley was one of the highest on my lists, so check them out for sure! I think GIT is a good engineering school for it, and Princeton is probably the best Ivy except maybe for Harvard...
Here are the best computer science college:
University of California--Berkeley.
University of Illinois--Urbana-Champaign.
University of Washington.
Georgia Institute of Technology.
University of Texas -- Austin.
University of Michigan--Ann Arbor
Columbia University -- New York, NY
University of California--Los Angeles
University of Wisconsin--Madison
University of California--San Diego
University of Maryland--College Park
University of Pennsylvania
Hope this helps!
I also want to add that from what I've seen, it doesn't really matter too much where you go to school for CS jobs. Since the industry is quickly and constantly growing, jobs want to find people with the best skills and a lot of capabilities. My dad went to a state school with a totally different major but then taught himself about computer science, programming, etc. Now he's a product director for a software company. He is also in charge of hiring new employees, and the biggest thing he says stands out to him is a candidate's skills and experience, not where or with what major they went to school.
