We considered two factors: reputation and future earnings, specifically looking for schools that had relatively low rankings on the U.S. News list but high mid-career salaries. You can read the full methodology here.
Pace University topped the list, with Missouri University of Science and Technology and New Jersey Institute of Technology rounding out the top three.
