The website NerdWallet.com has released a report showing the best earning values for degrees across the United States.

Georgia Tech was the only school in Georgia to make the top twenty, coming in at #10 overall. However, Tech was ranked #1 for public schools.

For individual degrees, the Computer Science degree from Tech ranked 9th and Engineering degrees ranked 10th. The rankings take into account average earnings for graduates along with tuition costs and probability of acceptance.

Overall, Carnegie Mellon University School of Computing was top ranked, but annual tuition of $45,000 could be a challenge for many students.

All volunteers receive training, free parking and a catered meal provided by Carole Parks Catering.
