Best of Top Ranking Colleges in the USA for Computer Science

This is the list of the best Colleges and Universities in the United States of America for Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and Engineering. Amongst these colleges and universities are some of the world's schools such as the MIT, Stanford and University of California, Berkeley. The order in which the colleges are listed on the site are quite representative of their rankings. However, the order should not be strictly construed to be rankings assigned to these schools. The order may vary from that listed by other ranking services.

1.Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA

Electrical engineering was originally taught at MIT in the Physics Department. A new degree program in Electrical Engineering was started in 1882. The Department of Electrical Engineering was formed in the fall of 1902, and in 1973, it recognized its growing activity in computer science by changing its name to Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.
The EECS Department is the largest in the School of Engineering with about 700 graduate students in the doctoral program. The department offers four graduate degree programs: Master of Science (SM), required of students pursuing a doctoral degree, Master of Engineering (MEng), for MIT EECS undergraduates only, Electrical Engineer (EE)/Engineer in Computer Science (ECS), Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)/Doctor of Science (ScD), awarded interchangeably.
MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (also CSAIL) is a research laboratory that complements theoretical studies. CSAIL's research activities are organized around a number of semi-autonomous research groups, each of which is headed by one or more professors or research scientists. These groups are divided up into seven general areas of research: Artificial Intelligence, Computational biology, Graphics and Vision, Language and Learning, Theory of computation, Robotics, Systems.

2.Stanford University, Stanford, CA

Stanford University's Computer Science Department is part of the School of Engineering. The department offers the degrees Bachelor of Science, Master of Science, and Doctor of Philosophy. Founded in 1965, the Department of Computer Science is a center for research and education at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Strong research groups exist in areas of artificial intelligence, robotics, foundations of computer science, scientific computing, and systems. Basic work in computer science is the main research goal of these groups, but there is also a strong emphasis on interdisciplinary research and on applications that stimulate basic research.
The Master’s Degree in Computer Science (MSCS) students can choose to specialize in one of ten areas including: AI, Biocomputation, Computer and Network Security, Database Systems, Human-Computer Interaction, Numerical Analysis, Real-World Computing, Software Theory, Systems and Theoretical CS. Students are required to complete a minimum of 45 units at Stanford.

3.University of California--Berkeley, Berkeley, CA

During the early 60's computer systems research led to one of the first practical time-sharing systems, implemented commercially in 1966 as the SDS 940 (later, Xerox 940) series of computers. In 1968 a group of Electrical Engineering faculty members transferred to the College of Letters and Science to participate in establishing a Department of Computer Science. A 1973 merger formed the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences.
The M.S. and Ph.D. are academic degrees with an emphasis on research. It is possible to complete the M.S. degree in a single academic year, but most students take three to four semesters. The median time of completion for the Ph.D. is five and a half years. The following degrees are offered: M.S. / PhD in Engineering, M.S. / PhD in Engineering Science, M.S. / PhD in Computer Science.
Ph.D. students may choose to add a designated emphasis to their program. Designated emphases are available in: Communication, Computation and Statistics, Computational and Genomic Biology, Computational Science and Engineering, Nanoscale Science and Engineering, New Media.

4.Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA

Carnegie Mellon has entered the global educational and research arena with campuses in California and Qatar, and programs in Australia, China, Greece, India, Japan, Korea, Portugal, and Taiwan. The ECE Department has added several ECE focused research and education partnerships with Taiwanese government-sponsored universities and research institutes, with the Agency for Science, Technology and Research of Singapore, and the Information Communications Technology Institute of Portugal among others.
Currently, the School of Computer Science offers a masters degree in the following areas: Masters in Machine Learning, Masters in Language Technologies, Masters in Robotics, Masters in Entertainment Technology, Masters in Human-Computer Interaction, Masters of Information Technology in E-business Technology, Masters in Software Engineering, Masters in Software Engineering Management, Masters of Science in Information Technology, Specialization in Very Large Information Systems (MSIT-VLIS), Master of Science in Information Technology in Robotics Technology (MSIT/RT), Masters of Science in Information Technology--IT Service Management (MSIT/ITSM), Masters of Science in Information Technology--Embedded Software Engineering.
