    Anybody here knows of a private college which has a respectable computer hardware engineering program?

    Tulane University used to have one, but Katrina took it. UC Berkley perhaps?

    I know two right off hand: Duke University and The U. (University of Miami) There are probably tons more out there.

    And Stanford has excellent rates for low-income students.

    As someone who majored in computer engineering, I would avoid it unless you intend on getting at least a master's. Computer science or electrical engineering are better BS degrees to have.

    MIT. Plain and simple. The question is, do you really think you can get in there? Somebody mentioned Carnegie Mellon - also an excellent school. I know a guy who got both his BS and MS there in CE and he is doing very well working for Apple now.
