I studied for 3 semesters in mechanical departmentMar 27 2017Mechanical Engineering
I studied for 3 semesters in mechanical department and I had to leave because of many reason but the most important thing was unorganized department. There are many things wrong with this department and believe me, you don`t want to waste your time going for graduate program there. I know other departments are good and well paid but mechanical is a mess.
The Mechanical Engineering graduate program is extremely thiDec 09 2008Mechanical Engineering
The Mechanical Engineering graduate program is extremely thin (minimal classes and no PhD). Sad, considering it's the largest undergrad department. The Materials Science/Metallurgy programs are very good, as well as Electrical Engineering. The research direction (based on ME department) is very misguided and there's very little industrial exposure.
This university is not very organized - IJan 30 2007Meteorology
This university is not very organized - I guess that's a part of small town life - a slower and more laid back pace where there's no rush to get things done by a deadline (or so it seems). There's not much pushing to get things done. However, I have met many wonderful people here, and have had opportunities for career development that I likely would not have had at another university. Furthermore, I may have met my future spouse here, so, for that, I must be thankful to have had the opportunity to attend the school.
