Well when I look up famous engineers or ones who work for the government or some big corporation they usually went to an ivy league, Mit, Stanford, Berkley or uhhh an ivy league so it seems like maybe what you say is not true and at least some employers do care about pedigree.
the University of Chicago(which they think is a public school).
And yes I think any sane person would rather have an ee degree from Harvard.
Sorry but Harvard EE is TTT. Its not good, and you saying whenever you look up a famous engineer they are from the IVY league doesn't mean shit, because its not true. The ivy league for years looked down on practical education like engineering because it was thought of as low class, while instead the land grant public school system was built to produce engineers.
You are misrepresenting what I'm saying when you include, MIT, Stanford and Berkeley, because they aren't ivy league. They are three of the best engineering programs in the world.
UIUC is a significantly better engineering school than any of the Ivy league except Cornell.
In the engineering world UIUC pedigree > Harvard engineering. You may not believe it but its true.
Those who could get into Harvard but want to do engineering go to MIT or Stanford.
I’ll agree with you on one thing, I guess, those who get into Harvard but want to do engineering do got to MIT or Stanford, Caltech etc. instead but they sure as hell don’t go to UofI instead. I mean UIllinois>Harvard wtf. That’s my main point and looked at faculty at MIT etc. and I did find faculty with degrees from some state schools and more than I might have thought(although most were from MIT, Caltech, Stanford, Berkeley), however what I did not find was more faculty in engineering departments at MIT with degrees from UofI than Harvard.
Also, MIT, Stanford, Caltech even Berkeley are generally viewed as being more on par or on par with Harvard in general and UofI is not.
