Good colleges for engineering?Answered
Hi, I'm a freshman and I'm leaning towards civil engineering. Are there any good colleges that aren't Ivy's that guarantee me success in the field that isn't on collegevine? They added more colleges into the list (which I'm excited about) but I'm wondering if there is any that isn't mentioned.

SUNY Stony Brook
I hope these help! Feel free to ask questions if you'd like clarification.
I think the best way to kind of see what schools would fit you is actually on the college vine app. I know you said not on this, however I do think most of the colleges are on here already tbh. If you'd like to check on college vine, go to schools and click the Find Schools on the dropdown menu. There should be a whole bunch of schools divided into 6 sections based upon your qualifications. On the left hand side(on the computer at least), there's a filter by option. Type which major you are interested in, civil engineering, and it should reorder the schools to match that. Hope this helps!
I love to look at the Department of Education's Scorecard Data. The Pell Grant recipients who majored in Civil Engineering and had median first year earnings of over $65k had degrees from:
Stevens Institute of Technology $72,700
Santa Clara University $72,500
San Jose State University $72,100
University of Southern California $71,500
University of Notre Dame $69,200
Cal Poly San Luis Obispo $68,100
University of the Pacific $68,100
California Baptist University $67,500
Cornell University $67,100
University of Virginia $66,500
New York University $66,400
Manhattan College $66,100
UC Berkeley $66,000
