This school is not that great.Quite BrightPhysics
This school is not that great. I deeply regret not going to any of the other schools I got into, including some ivy leagues. The academics are okay, not too challenging, you can slip through the system even if you are not learning much. The facilities are pretty good for a small school. It is hard to find intelligent people, a lot are smart, but very few are intelligent and intellectually stimulating. A lot of the people are also unnecessarily dramatic, immature, and self centered; it was surprising to see the small amount of people that actually cared about world news, the arts, literature, and frankly, anything other than themselves. If you like sciences/engineering but are also interested in an enriching environment then do not go to this school. The arts and humanities are awful, not because of the staff, but because humanities require student participation, and if the students are incapable of profound thought, then the classes suck. Ohh, and they also spend an insane amount of money on ridiculous things (football team, propaganda, etc) instead of on their students and academics. I was not miserable, I made lots of friends, joined a sports team, kept a high GPA, and had the classic college experience, but nevertheless I did miss intellectual stimulation. I love science, and the science at this school is fine, but for a truly well rounded education go somewhere else. I wish someone would have warned me about the lack of intellectual engagement at this campus.

GRADUATION CLASS OF 1988Electrical Engineering
FIT was an excellent experience for me. I majored in electrical engineering and left with a bachelors degree. I became a residence assistant and also worked as a security dispatcher to help pay the bills. With this degree I started working for a large communications company in Georgia as a design engineer at a starting salary higher than all of my friends (small by today's standards). I felt like I was well prepared for this job. I was competing with engineers from Georgia Tech, Clemson and even MIT. Currently I have been with a medium sized semiconductor company and have progressed nicely up the ranks. Currently I have a small staff working for me including 2 engineers from Columbia and 1 from Cornell. Those three are all about my age.

FIT is like most universities. You get out of it what you put into it. I studied a great deal while there and feel like I had a very good career as a result. Among my accomplishments are 9 patents and 5 company awards for excellence in engineering. I have been the head architect for products that have generated over $10 Bil in revenue (wish I got a cut).In short, go there. Study a lot! Take advantage of all that there is offered. Stay away from the beach - too much sun isn't good for you! You'll be rewarded.

If you can comfortably afford this university, by all means; go. If not, you can easily find your degree at a much cheaper price
