One of the most reputable Engineering, Science and Technology schools, California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in Pasadena, California is a research-focused university that has graduated and employed numerous award-winning scholars.
Academics at Caltech encompass bachelor’s and graduate programs in Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry and Engineering.
An integral part of the Caltech experience is the research activity, which often takes place in conjunction with such well-known organizations as Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the Huntington Library.
More than 30 Caltech graduates or faculty have won the Nobel Prize and more than 65 have received awards from the Academies of Science.
Since the school is fairly small, students may reap the rewards of working so closely with such exceptional faculty.
Prospective students should have a strong record of academic performance, since Caltech is so competitive and selective in its admissions.
Students may obtain financial aid or even tuition fellowships if they meet eligibility requirements.
75% of students gave California Institute of Technology 5 stars overall.
This is a very hard core academic school. You should not attend if you plan on watching football games and showing school pride for your basketball team. That being said, if can survive all the school work and testing, everything will be downhill from there.
Caltech is very small, with an undergraduate class not much more than 200 per year. This means you get to know your classmates very well and you become part of a community instead of just a statistic. You won't find a superior school for engineering and technology - the research is world class and even undergraduates are strongly encouraged to get involved.
