Top 5 Tech Institutes and Universities

Here are the next top 5:

University of Tokyo
The University of Tokyo in Japan gives students who want to study technology and engineering abroad an opportunity to experience Japanese culture. The university's focus is on making the changing demands of technology and society, with globalization changing the way human interactions -- and technology -- work.
Imperial College London
Another top UK college, Imperial College London, has a particular focus on IT and engineering as it relates to "industry, commerce, and healthcare." This is one of the larger colleges on the list, with a student body of about 14,000 and a faculty of about 3000.
University of Toronto, Canada
The University of Toronto Canada focuses on teaching and research, with a unique focus on engineering and IT. Its profile states that it presents "top students at all levels with an intellectual environment unmatched in breadth and depth on any other Canadian campus." Its faculty and staff rank as experts in their fields, with a strong reputation, among the top five, in research.
Carnegie Mellon University
Carnegie Mellon University is the only one of the schools on the "top 10" list to be founded in the 20th century. Despite its relatively young age, its stringent focus on IT and engineering make it a sought-after destination for students who want to focus in these fields. Perhaps because of its "young age," the campus itself is among the most technologically sophisticated in the world. In fact, it established the "Andrew" computing network in the 1980s, while many if not most schools were still several years from this sort of integration.
ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology)
The Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich is in fact where Albert Einstein started his career; its focus is especially attractive to top students in engineering and the natural sciences. It has a uniquely international focus, with fully two thirds of its faculty international as well. It is consistently ranked first among the universities in continental Europe. Undergraduates must be aware, though, that if they want to study at this university, they'll need to speak German, as this is the language of undergraduate courses are taught in. Graduate courses are taught in English.
