Colorado Mesa University - Comments and Student Experiences|
But everyone kept telling me I'd be better off going to CU or CSU -- more notable schools. Indeed, gaining contacts is really important if you're going to be competing for a job right after graduation, especially in engineering. But my goal is graduate school and a career in research.
The education quality is exceptional, especially when you consider the price. I have friends at various prestigious universities throughout the country -- MIT, School of Mines, Duke -- and I think I've learned more than them. Mesa's size allows a more one-on-one setting with the professors, which comes in handy with complex ideas. Its the difference between truly understanding concepts versus understanding test questions. If you're wanting to live in an awesome town in America's best state and are aiming for professional or graduate school, Colorado Mesa is an awesome school. Its definitely the best value as far as I've seen in Colorado.
Only concern is that the CS isn't ABET accredited, which employers don't care about, but accreditation makes you feel a little better as a student.
They've got 3D printers!!!!!!!
