College reccomendations

My teen is a solid B+/A- student and is interested in studying either robotics engineering or computer science in college. She will take the SATs next year--so we don't have those scores yet, but we are starting to look at colleges. She wants to go to college in or near a big city. Got any recommendations of schools she might actually get into with those grades? Of course, we are not considering the "big league" schools.
