Harvey Mudd College on this year's ranking list:
Harvey Mudd College is the second undergraduate school from the Claremont Colleges consortium to make this list. It is even smaller than Pomona, with only 800 students in attendance; but like Pomona its small size belies the great resources students have access to, both within Harvey Mudd throughout the Claremont Colleges
Computer science and engineering majors have the opportunity to take part in the Harvey Mudd “Clinic,” a year-long capstone course in which students create their own software design project. The Clinic has become a tradition ever since it took off in the engineering department in the early 1960s.
