College Factual reviewed 47 schools in the Southeast Region to determine which ones were the best for bachelor's degree seekers in the field of engineering technologies. When you put them all together, these colleges and universities awarded 4,946 bachelor's degrees in engineering technologies during the 2020-2021 academic year.
Choosing a Great Engineering Technologies School for Your Bachelor's Degree
The engineering tech bachelor's degree program you select can have a big impact on your future. Important measures of a quality engineering tech program can vary widely even among the top schools. Below we explain some of the most important factors to consider before making your choice:
Overall Quality Is a Must
The overall quality of a bachelor's degree school is important to ensure a good education, not just how well they do in a particular major. To take this into account we include a college's overall Best Colleges ranking which itself looks at a collection of different factors like degree completion, educational resources, student body caliber and post-graduation earnings for the school as a whole.
Average Early-Career Salaries
Average early-career salary of those graduating with their bachelor's degree is one indicator we use in our analysis to find the schools that offer the highest-quality education. After all, your bachelor's degree won't mean much if it doesn't help you find a job that will help you earn a living.
Other Factors We Consider
The metrics below are just some of the other metrics that we use to determine our rankings.
Major Focus - How much a school focuses on engineering technologies students vs. other majors.
Major Demand - The number of engineering technologies students who choose to seek a bachelor's degree at the school.
Educational Resources - How many resources are allocated to students. These resources may include educational expenditures per student, number of students per instructor, and graduation rate among other things.
Student Debt - How easy is it for engineering technologies to pay back their student loans after receiving their bachelor's degree.
Accreditation - Whether a school is regionally accredited and/or accredited by a recognized engineering technologies related body.
Our complete ranking methodology documents in more detail how we consider these factors to identify the best schools for engineering technologies students working on their bachelor's degree.
