Business leaders picked their Top 50 engineering schools

Three Canadian universities made the cut


Business Insider has published an engineering schools ranking that answers the question potential students are most likely to ask. Which schools do my future employers think are best?

The ranking is based on a survey of 723 leaders including developers, engineers and others at popular tech companies. Each leader rated schools from “not valuable” to “most valuable.”

The Top 50 campuses were overwhelmingly American with a few contenders from Britain, India and Israel. Canada had three out of 50. The University of Waterloo, the darling of Canada’s tech sector, was #29. The University of Toronto was #35. The University of Ottawa ranked #44.

The top five overall: #1. California Institute of Technology, #2. Massachusetts Institute of Technology #3. Stanford #4. Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and #5. University of California Berkeley.

Business leaders picked their Top 50 engineering schools

  1. Wow congratulations uOttawa. Didn’t really expect that. Their graduates must be really impressing managers despite so many (probably uneducated) people simply considering it simply a ‘decent’ university in Canada.

    • I agree with you about the general public’s idea of uOttawa, however it is clearly apparent that ottawa’s statistics and reputation is increasing significantly over the years

  2. Being a uOttawa Resident, Alumni and ex full time employee, I am very happy to see the ranking
