Well most of the UC's are pretty good (Irvine, Davis, etc.) as are Harvey Mudd and the other Claremont Colleges. Outside of that, I can't really say.
In Washington state, University of Washington and Western Washington University are both pretty good.
The best school in Oregon is probably Reed College.
Also, take a look at CU: Boulder and the Colorado School of Mines, each in Colorado.
