"There are a handful of fields that all but guarantee graduates a high return on investment: finance, medicine, law," but an undergraduate degree in engineering is usually considered the highest-paying bachelor's degree. As VC editors explain, "for people who like hands-on experimentation, complex projects, and dreaming big, engineering is the way to go. Engineering degrees have spectacularly high ROIs, even from state colleges and universities, and there's a job market hungry for qualified engineers." For most engineering students, "There are a lot of very solid financial reasons to go residential," including "well-equipped laboratories for experimentation" and connections to local industry. But it's becoming much more common for working adults to consider bachelor's completion programs while still working, and to meet the demand, online engineering bachelor's degrees have become much more common. Between bachelor's in engineering technology and more theoretical, graduate school-oriented engineering bachelor's programs, there are options for every prospective engineer. The purpose of the Value Colleges ranking of the best engineering bachelor's programs is to help students find their way to the program that meets their specific needs.

Value Colleges has a mission to help future students - whether they are working professionals, new graduates, minority and first-generation students, or others - to find residential and online degree programs that will help them make their goals a reality. Value Colleges is independent and unbiased, ranking degree programs, providing guides for the complex financial and professional questions of college students, and offering honest facts about the potential and pitfalls of a college education.
