Top Universities for Innovation

The clean tech blog has outlined the green and sustainability technology communities which are producing some of the most interesting and useful innovation in the clean technology sector. I think this is also a good assessment of overall technology innovation (although I think other engineering and technical universities would be added to the list along with University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and Duke University, both of which are located in the research triangle. Likewise Carnegie Melon, Purdue, and the California Institute of Technology fall into the engineering category):

1) Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Boston, MA
2) University of California at Berkeley, CA
3) University of Texas at Austin, TX
4) Stanford University in Palo Alto, CA
5) University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, MI
6) University of Colorado at Bolder, CO
7) University of Wisconsin at Madison, WI
8] Cornell University in Ithaca, NY
9) Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, GA
10) Washington University in Pullman, WA
