LSU is a great school if you want to work in engineering in Louisiana or Texas.
However, it is not that great if you want to go elsewhere. If your kid can get scholarships, Georgia Tech, MIT, Vanderbilt, Stanford, ect all have far superior engineering programs if one wants to practice engineerin...
