July 28,2010 by: admin

In the late 2009, US News has come up with a list of the top 50 careers in 2010. Several careers related to the fields of science and technology made the cut, namely Conputer Software Engineer, Hydrologist, and Biomedical Engineer. And now, as freshmen start to face their college life by finding the right school for them, US News has again presented a list of, this time, the Best Schools for 2010′s Top Careers in Science and Technology. Of course, before choosing a school, a student must first decide on what to take up in college. Thus, the US News’ latest list helps you with this decision by naming a wide array of colleges and universities who have gained the upper hand in rendering the following science-related courses. By citing some of the most vital science careers of today, this lists surely may help you build your future.

Computer Software Engineer

A Computer Software Engineer’s job includes designing, implementing, and modifying software. He ensures that the software he is making is of high quality, affordable, easy to maintain, among others. Computer software engineers apply computer science, mathematics and engineering to design, develop, and test softwares.

Carnegie Mellon (University School of Computer Science)

Located in Pittsburgh, Pensyllvania, the university claims that technologies behind early speech recognition software and Internet search engines were catalyzed in the school’s hallways.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science)

10 faculty members in this school are members of the American Association for Artificial Intelligence and 9 in the Association for Computing Machinery. This only proves its high standards of teaching provided by its well-trained and highly-efficient faculty.

Stanford University (Department of Computer Science)

Based in Stanford, California, the university boasts of its high quality facilities like the $38 million-worth Gates Computer Scince Building which houses the Department of Computer Science.


The primary task of a hydrologist is to monitor, manage and protect water resources in public setting like schools, offices, commercial buildings and establishments. He is in charge of the engineering of pipes and other water channels and in the control of water provision. He is also tasked in efficiently planning and developing sustainable programs for the wise and cost-effective use of water resources.

California Institute of Technology (Division of Geological and Planetary Sciences)

Located in Pasadena, California, this institute has done numerous researches in the field of earth science. For example, a study about glaciers as a material to determine the Earth’s climate history has done by Caltech’s Students and Faculty Members.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences)

MIT’s feature facility is its geophysical fluid dynamics laboratory, wherein students have the wide array of up-to-date laboratory tools and equipment they use in analyzing liquid particles.

University of California—Berkeley (Department of Earth and Planetary Science)

In 2001, the university’s department of Earth and Planetary Science was restructured Instead of having a sole focus on Geology, the department now included topics on the environment and the oceans.

Biomedical Engineer

Biomedical Engineers are the ones who conducts researches in order to improve technologies used in providing health care services. They use engineering principles in designing and developing material products such as surgical instruments, and other clinical equipment. Careers in this field are closely related to the health care services.

Johns Hopkins University Whiting (School of Engineering)

Located in Baltimore, Maryland, this school takes pride with a faculty member who recently led a research team which engineered and grew the most lifelike artificial heart tissue to date.

Georgia Institute of Technology (College of Engineering)

Based in Atlanta, Georgia, this institute registers 150 students in the graduate program in which 9 departments and almost 90 faculty members are taking part

University of California—San Diego (Jacobs School of Engineering)
