Google shows me MIT, Purdue, all the way to Georgia Institute of Technology and Oklahoma University. I don't know how to tell the top-of-the-line ones from the crummy ones, though.
I'm looking for one that is somewhat below MIT and Purdue, but still has a good solid program, and would look nice on applications. The character in question is very intelligent and good with machines, but earthy and very much a get-her-hands-dirty type. She wanted to design cars and trucks, but given a choice would rather take a (radiator for example) apart to see how she could improve it than pore over it's design specifications. I don't see her choosing a high-end place like MIT, but she would definitely want to go to school somewhere with a serious mechanical engineering program. Something that would get her ready to start building a better pick-up.
