What other universities offer an experience like Purdue?

So Im totally into Purdue for their strong engineering and STEM programs, but just to keep my options open, what other universities should I be looking into that are on par with Purdue in terms of quality engineering programs and campus life? Any suggestions for schools with a similar rep for tech and innovation would be greatly appreciated!

Hey there! It's fantastic that you're looking ahead and considering various options. Similar to Purdue, you'll find top-tier engineering programs at schools like Georgia Tech, which has an outstanding reputation for engineering and computing disciplines. The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign is another strong contender, known for excellent research and innovation in STEM fields. Both these universities offer a vibrant campus life and have a strong focus on technology and innovation.

On the west coast, the University of California, Berkeley, is a leader in the engineering realm and is surrounded by the tech hub of Silicon Valley, making it a hotspot for those interested in cutting-edge tech fields.

Don’t forget to also consider Michigan Tech or Colorado School of Mines; both have strong programs, although they are slightly smaller than Purdue. Remember to review each school's specific programs because they may have particular strengths in certain engineering disciplines. I hope this helps to build a great list of prospective schools!
