Question Description
I just asked about TOEFL score required to study engineering. I heard that most of the universities in USA also ask for the SAT score along with TOEFL or IELTS score to enroll international student into their engineering program. So, please suggest me, how much SAT score do I need in order to get accepted in best and top engineering schools of USA?
Answer

Many top universities do not state the minimum SAT score requirements for acceptance into their engineering schools. They just ask for a good SAT score. They use SAT score only as one of the factor for selection of students. However, from the past records, it can be said that 2150 or above score in total is the decent score to be admitted in engineering programs of these top engineering schools.

For the reference, I am including top universities for engineering programs in USA with their SAT scores.
