Book Reviews

All prospective grad school applicants should purchase book on the GRE (Graduate Record Examination). We recommend an official guide from ETS (Educational Testing Service), the test's author. There is a difference between the official questions you will be asked on the exam and the practice questions contained in all other books. Also we have a library of other great resources to help to prepare for the test.

Engineering School

Engineering school can be a great place for networking, research and career mapping!

Engineers are in demand – and surveys suggest that’s not likely to change in the intermediate future. U.S. employers regularly host foreign engineers on employment visas in order to fill positions, as there are not nearly enough qualified U.S. professionals to meet demand. Engineering school is probably as safe an investment as any commitment to higher education can be. At the same time, graduate engineering school can help make careers more satisfying by updating your knowledge and skills, providing opportunities for research and providing you with the graduate degree that many large employers require for advancement.


The following table lists some of the top-ranked engineering schools in the U.S.

A Note on Deadlines – Application deadlines vary by engineering school. Check with the program you are applying to for current deadline information. In general, plan on submitting your application no later than nine months prior to the semester you want to start classes.
