| I thoroughly enjoyed my time in graduate school at Tech. Though I entered the civil engineering masters program without a bachelors degree, I made great friends in my undergraduate courses and learned to apply myself in engineering. Tech most certainly has top-notch students as I had it was an immense challenge to hold my own with them. |
My professors were exceptionally renowned in their fields. They fully expect a graduate student to make every effort to understand an engineering concept or problem, but will also help direct you out of a log jam.
After graduating nearly eleven years ago, Tech still leaves a permanent mark on my presentation as a professional. I would highly recommend that a graduate student work on a research project and write a thesis. The presentation and written communication skills are invaluable and will place you professionally in a position that is above par. As far as Tech and Lubbock are rated, I never had a problem making good friends. There are plenty of activities to get involved with and places to go and hang out.

| Nothing to do in this small town, but drink. EVERYTHING costs money! All food on campus is over priced fast food. Jack-in-the box across the street is cheaper and tastes better. The tutoring center sucks. The tutors are all students in class with you! I've been given wrong answers multiple times. Too many TA's teaching classes, classes that I'm being charged full price for. Professors are average at best. Everyone in the math dept. is Indian and barely speaks english. If you're going to school in TX, go to A&M. You've been warned!! |
