more technical curriculum

I would like to find a school (In North America) with the strongest technical side possible. By that I mean one with lots of sciences in the curriculum and Ideally close ties with an engineering department. i want a broad skill set in product design but I would like to come away with some technical savvy when working with electronics and interfaces. I guess what I want is a bachelor of science in product design. I’ve found a few but i want to leave no stone unturned.

Any suggestions??

Also, Canadians who have gone to the US to study ID in the past. Any advice on getting loans or financing education south of the border? Was it worth it? The tuition+plus living expenses+exchange for a lot of schools is a little scary.
