UIUC ECE 487 Lecture 7 Tight Binding Model
Not really sure how UIUC compares to the other schools you listed, but I would think that if UIUC ECE is as rigorous as MIT, it would also be able to compare with Stanford, CMU, and Berkeley.
UIUC ECE 385 Fall 2013 - Galaga (VHDL)
I also know a graduate student at MIT who got her undergrad degree from UIUC. She also told me that she felt the UIUC ECE curriculum was just as good as if not better than the MIT EECS curriculum. She felt she was just as prepared for graduate school as the graduate students who had gotten their undergrad degrees from MIT.
