Question
Overall the engineering and computer science department isBrightComputer Engineering
Overall the engineering and computer science department is competent and has plenty of great professors. The material is decent and the lab work is satisfying. My major complaint, and not necessarily a negative if you are aware of it, is the lack of communication with the student if a problem arises.

Twice now I've had my graduation time pushed back a semester or two simply because critical problems were relayed to me vaguely or just once then forgotten. Students are busy and don't have time to sift through worthless emails every day to find that one gem we need. It's easy to accidentally miss extremely important correspondence like a single email warning you of a problem. They have your phone number and address but don't bother making an effort to contact you if their email seems to slip by unnoticed. Unfortunately, an email slipping by you is pretty easy because they love using your student email as a place to constantly direct what could only be considered spam. This drowns out the 1 in a 100 or so that you may actually read. Watch it like a hawk and you should be fine.

Question
While I tremendously enjoyed the learning experience atBusiness - Management and Administration
While I tremendously enjoyed the learning experience at UTD, the real life outside of the school is a different story. The Graduate Programs at the School of Business is out of touch with current industry needs and labor market.

All you get is good theoretical knowledge, a degree, and a tuition bill (including loans). Don't forget, your student loan will show on your credit report which could potentially impact your borrowing power for your other life needs, etc. What you don't get is a job, career advice, networking, or camaraderie in professional life. Don't expect that other alumni from UTD will be open to connect and network, unlike other schools. Once you get a graduate degree, you may have harder time finding jobs. (strange phenomenon).So, the bottom line, you are making a decision to incur expenses (including international trips that are mainly for fun) and knowledge which doesn't necessarily translate into career advancement.
