This QBCC is anAverageUndecided
This QBCC is an outstanding school. I live in Long Island and commuting is easy. I think this is a great school and am happy with the education and the value. Profs are caring, easy to talk to and help me when I have questions.

Question
I wrote a very very long review atElectrical Engineering
I wrote a very very long review at another college website forum but suffice it to say, I will be brief here in saying that it's been over 25 years since I graduated and I see that some of my old professors are still teaching at QCC so I think it still applies for me to say that I got a high quality education from this school. After graduating with a degree of Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology. The rigor of the classes were hard enough to challenge me for 2 and a half years and after having graduated, I continued to City College for an engineers degree.Here's where it gets interesting. For my first few years at City College now studying for engineering I found that I already had a level of knowledge that other students were having a hard time. It should be said that I'm an average student with C+ or B- grades. The point is that the way the two schools teach was vastly different. QCC made it clear to understand and the professors explained well, and knew their stuff. City College basically taught engineering as required. A good example of this was one professor I had; Robert Boylestad. And excellent teacher that really cared that you didn't leave the class without fully knowing what you needed to know. Nashelsky, Emmanuel, etc.... There were many professors that were a rare breed- REAL TEACHERS.

Question
The nursing program is good.Quite BrightNursing
The nursing program is good. Professor's are knowledgeable about the course material and most teach it well. Foreign second language students have some troubles at times, but at the same time the nursing department seems to want to parade the successful ones around to show how the program is so culturally diverse because QCC loves to talk about the diverse student population. Many second language students with strong accents have great difficulty completing the program.

Academic success in the college is recognized, however, academic success in the nursing department is not. The only reasoning I can think of is that they want students to pass, but struggle to pass, and not do too well because then the program may not look so challenging. If it isn't that, then it must be that they don't appreciate the success of students who are American born, whom they can't tote around showing off how they have nurtured this foreign student and led them to academic success. You can work like crazy to get great grades, but your work will not even be recognized in the slightest unless they (the forces of the nursing program), find a political reason for it. Maybe the awards some receive to show how the nursing program does not discriminate, because look "we gave so many foreign students awards!"The education was good, but any education is what you make it.
