My review will be a little different becauseSep 09 2013Architecture
My review will be a little different because I went there twice. When I first went there in the late 1980's the instructors were very good, knowledgeable, helpful and I learned a lot of great things I needed to know to get a job in the real world. Here we are 20 years later in the 2000's I was unemployed at the time and decided to improve my knowledge and skills to stay competitive in today's world. I won't go into great details here but I will say I ended up being very disappointed in the complete downgrade and reversal in the quality of education and good instructions they used to provide. They did not keep up with the times with the rest of the world. I wasted a lot of time and money the second time around. I really hate that condescending, arrogant, self-absorbing faculty now. They are horrible. Do yourself a HUMONGOUS favor and find another school. I will never recommend this school to anyone ever again.
Do not waste your time taking the computerSep 16 2008Computer Engineering
Do not waste your time taking the computer / electronics class there. The place can hardly be considered a school. Some of the teachers there are hardly even qualified in my opinion. Even when you finally do get some hands on work you will be looking at some computers that are over 10-15 years old. After you graduate the chances of you landing a good full time job are very slim. You will receive some help finding a new job after going to the school. The problem is that after taking the classes there your barely qualified for an entry level position that's willing to pay you $11-13/h. Before you take the classes there they assure you that the average starting pay is much higher. Sure you might get a small entry level job for a large company IF your very lucky. Chances are that you will have to go back to a real school if you have any hope of advancing. In most cases you will find yourself going to very small businesses for work. It's bad enough that the school is not in any way that cheap for the subpar education that you get from it. Some of the jobs they refer you to only asked that you need a HS degree.
I really have nothing good to say aboutJan 07 2008Other
I really have nothing good to say about this school, I could go on and on and write a few paragraphs, but I can sum it up nicely? Keep looking for another school, there are much better schools on the Island and in the city if you are interested in pursuing a career in drafting. If i knew about the school what I know know, the staff, facility, students I would not have went. It was foolish of me two trust two short visits where I was quickly run through the classroom and into another building but I was young and thought education was more important than outside appearances. I still hold that vale true, but take it with a grain of salt after dealing with this schoo.
