RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer.

Engineering college rankings for 2014 have been out for a while now, so I'm a bit late reporting the results. All the ranking entities have their own set of criteria and claim to be objective, but unless there is a mutually agreed upon standard, let's face it, they all have a component of subjectivity in the ordering. I'm not going to tackle the validity of methods used, but instead will present the data. Note, however, that it is worth doing a quick read through the stated methods since some are based on institutional research and others rely solely on student surveys. Some rate only schools whose highest degree offered is a Bachelor's, while others include graduate and post graduate schools. Being that RF Cafe is viewed by a worldwide audience, I have included information on global rankings as well.
Schools are located in the USA unless otherwise noted.
