Absolutely awful. I cannot stress how angry I have become after going through this program. The department does not care about you at all. Advisor gave you the wrong information? Oh well, you're stuck here for another year paying a ton more money. Can't find a professor to teach a 400 level course? Better make this graduate student that knows very little on the subject teach it for the first time. This program does everything to waste your money.

The program itself does not help you learn anything useful for the real world- it's simply another degree mill. When I finally got to take my capstone I wanted to cry after reading some of the project required skills. They expect you to know things you were never taught at this school.

And don't forget about the price! As an 'engineering' student you have to pay about 500-1000 bucks more a semester. Why? The facilities here are absolutely awful. No outlets in the computer science classrooms? Bathroom faucets don't work, air conditioning is non-existent, and it always smells.

The beginning of the program was not bad. The first 100 and 200 level courses were great because the professors were awesome. However, this program really needs new upper level professors because there are maybe 2 that are worth taking. The rest are just here for research so they don't give a damn about their classes.

You might say I am bitter and angry just because I'm doing poorly. Not so. I have a 4.0 GPA, but I feel like I have learned nothing. I absolutely hate this school and everything it stands for.

responseI received a graduate degree, earning a 4.0 GPA in an ASU profession-oriented program and over a decade later have yet to find entry-level work in my degree.

My experience with ASU engineering was that the administration was toxic, and many faculty were not competent.
The business college might be better run.
