Quick plug for the University of Illinois, my alma mater, which is an excellent engineering program. I have heard that there are a few Imagineers from U of I.
FSU is another college I have heard about!
WDI is very unique position so its not certain what they are exactly looking for.
From Tyler BellHow about UCF,or UM?

From Adam NodjomianThanks for asking this question, because I was very curious as well. I want to probably major in civil engineering and minor in either architectuarl engineering or something like urban/master planning (if that is a possible major). I've always wanted to be an Imagineer, definetely at the top of my list for lifelong goals.

From Joshua CounsilI've dedicated my professional life to it. I'm currently finishing my master's degree in mechanical engineering in hopes that it gets me into the theme park industry!
