Depends on what you define as top rated.

1) As in you will receive the best undergrad education money can buy
Believe it or not, some of the best engineer schools in the nation you have never heard of: Harvey Mudd College, Rensselaer college, Coopers Union College. They all offer some of the best undergrad education in the nation. They are well know in engineering circles to put out some of the best educated engineers

2) As defined by US News & World Report
-This category doesnt mean much. Recruiters/companies never pay attention to this. Only parents and prospective students care about this

3) Reputation
- This is really what recruiters/companies think about a college and this is broken down into National and Regional.
--National: Cal Tech, MIT, Columbia, Ga Tech, etc.
--Regional: Depends on the region. local offices of national companies have a tendecy to recruit from regional schools. For example Orlando office of Lockheed recruits heavily from Univ of Florida.

One other thing to consider: Dont rule out a school based on cost of tuition, especially if its a private college. Private colleges have alot more leeway in scaling the tuition rate based on student need. Versus state schools that have a static tuition (mandated by the respective state legislature) rate that is scaled with scholarships. Those scholarships have to be backed by hard money.
My best friend in undergrad had very few options for graduate school among the various state universities she applied at, however Havard gave her a full ride with a yearly $2k stipend.
