what are the best research universities (other than ivy league)

MIT does a lot of research. I think they actually take in more money from research than from tuition.

If you want to do research (I'm assuming math, science, or engineering), Caltech is far better than any other school in the nation. While their faculty is as good (and as large) as, if not better than, any other faculty in the country, you'll have the advantage of being one of 800 undergrads instead of 4000 undergrads at, say, MIT. This means that your chances of getting to do research is much better, for every professor needs grad students and undergrads to do the grunt work of their research.

Oh yeah, the government spends about $800,000 per student per year at Caltech. Where does the money go? Research.

Sorry--actually, it may be $200,000/year ($800,000/4years). But it's still a lot, and it's mainly because it is the only small research university in the nation.

JHU gets the most money for research from the government. Also, 80% of undergraduates participate in research.

CORNELL does alot, I mean alot of research. I applied, but I hear they're defined as a research institution.

By Quarky (Quarky) on Wednesday, February 05, 2003 - 07:16 pm: Edit

Caltech, MIT, COrnell, JHU, U Chicago, Berkeley and UCLA are pretty good...

By cornell on Wednesday, February 05, 2003 - 08:17 pm: Edit

Cornell is an ivy league school. Batman said other than ivies.

By Quarky (Quarky) on Wednesday, February 05, 2003 - 10:43 pm: Edit

True; sorry, I ignored that part of his question.

By ivy league? on Wednesday, February 05, 2003 - 10:55 pm: Edit

But while we're on topic of ivies, which ivies are the best research institutions for undergrad and grad schools?

By Batman Returns on Wednesday, February 05, 2003 - 11:34 pm: Edit

What about these schools:
U michigan
U washington (not WUStL)
Duke
Ut Austin

in research, are we talking about stuffs like engineering and science? Or does it include stuffs like history. By the way, what kind of research do they do in history?

Don't forget CMU!!!

By asdf on Thursday, February 06, 2003 - 05:26 pm: Edit

The University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of Illinois - Urbana-Champagne also do large amounts of research.
