Student Ratings

Alumnus - Grad Year 2001

Academics Rating

The academics are world class. If you get admitted you can handle the difficulty of the work. Compared to some of its peer institutions, the balance between the graduate and undergraduate student populations affords better opportunities for undergraduates to get involved in research.

Alumnus - Grad Year 1992

Academics Rating

The computer science department was very good. The science & engineering classes I took were large -- at least compared to my high school. I did not seek one-on-one help from TAs or professors, though I probably should have.
