Here's what I don't get...here's where the USNWR loses me:
Overall Engineering ranking? Let us ring that up shall we? Katching:
What the!!! Weird huh?! I mean, if Caltech were at least considered better than Michigan in one of the ten specialties. Just one! I would understand.

Sounds like a rankings system by which I'd choose a school to attend.

You could make the same case that Caltech doesn't beat Illinois.

which USNEWS alexandre, graduate or undergrad 2005 ?
For graduate ranking (which actually represents schools specialty reputation):
Overall ranking in Engineering Caltech ranks #6
In Peer Assessment (by Academic) Caltech ranks #3
In Assessment (by Employer) Caltech ranks #2
For EE, I thought Caltech is #4
Don't you realize that excluding research money funding column Caltech in grad engineering will rank #1 or #2 ??
undergrad engineering specialty ranking is sucks & unreliable . Undergrad student are not supposed to limit themselves in too specialized program in engineering.
And oh yes, let me share a secret with you, Michigan in a few engineering major ranks better than Caltech because the number of faculty is smaller. But when you compare one-to-one the faculty and the student body, Michigan is a light year away behind Caltech and that's why the ranking hehehe
p.s Alexandre, don't be worked-up ok, it's a jovial tease

Michigan beats Caltech?! What nonsense! Another pathetic year of USNews rankings.

Rtkysg, the rankings I provide above are the new, 2005 undergraduate rankings. And I agree with you. At the undergraduate level, they should not rank individual Engineering disciplines, and yet they do. All I am saying is that the way the USNWR does it simply makes no sense.
