What Students Are Saying

3.94 Average Rating
It's supposed to be really tough, but definitely worth it. My dad works in the computer engineering industry and says his company adores Caltech graduates. I don't remember... but I think I was told that completing the Core curriculum alone at Caltech is equivalent to the coursework of a math major at Harvard? I really don't remember. In any case, despite its difficulty, there is one faculty member for every three students, so there's plenty of people around to help.

Caltech is a very challenging school, but worth the hard work.
