What Students Are Saying

3.97 Average Rating
This is a great engineering school.
This school has a job placement rate of 96%.
Even though there is more men than women, women get treated just as equal.
This University is very concerned about the well-being of their students. My experience there as a freshman was wonderful. The campus is very welcoming as well.
