He cares more about Research Quality than the average student.

Major: Engineering Department (This Major's Salary over time)
The level of research is appalling. The quality of students allowed in are dreadful and there is always propaganda in the department. If you are planning to do a PhD here, please for your own sake look at another college. This place is bad, the people have no clue what they want to see in 10 years and honestly do not know what they want to see in 6 months. They might lure you in with funding but trust me looking back i wish i never came here.. Its a shame really and the surrounding is also bad. There is nothing to do and really if you are international student you will be treated differently by locals… This place is a shame and the department is a shame to the name of education
