Going to one of the top universities in the world will certainly help in securing a great job with companies specialising in the likes of software, security or application development.
The 2012-2013 Times Higher Education world university rankings' engineering and technology judges employed 13 performance indicators with the hope of providing the most comprehensive and balanced comparisons available, trusted by students, academics, university leader, industry and government.
The list, compiled with data collected by Thomson Reuters, found that the California Institute of Technology (CIT) was rated first in the ranking for the third year in a row.
Though the US dominated the list, 10 European universities made the top 50.
1. University of Cambridge
Overall rank: 5
The University of Cambridge's school of technology aims to provide students with analytical, design and computing skills that underpin modern engineering practice, recognising that technology has its own priorities and its own criteria for success. There's also a strong focus on creativity and problem-solving skills that are important in the creation of wealth and in improving the quality of life.
Notable alumni include the designer of the world's first computing system, Charles Babbage, and Maurice Wilkes, the creator of the first programmable computer, while the world's first web cam was also invented by Cambridge researchers in 1991.
