What Students Are Saying

3.95 Average Rating
For the first time in my life, classes are truly challenging; it's a bit scary, but the things I am learning far outweigh the challenge.
I'm learning things that I know I will actually employ in my industry, and the professors all have useful real-world experience.
You will only succeed here if you are serious about learning.

The classes are tough- no doubt about it. the instructors are great and there are plenty of support sessions available to help you out. you may end up on a lab section that meets at an inopportune time because there are so many freshman science courses that you have to fit in.
Lyn from Braintree, MA
A top ranked school in the engineering and design field. We're less recognized nationally as we don't offer much phD programs and the school is predominately undergraduate. New programs are quickly added though, and is def going to change within the few years.

As a transfer student, the school's academic rigor is very challenging. There is less focus on liberal arts. Despite having a concentration (similar to a minor, but a class or two less), there is less emphasis on liberal arts and you'll take courses that you're interested in within your field.

Most courses are preparing you to succeed in the real world, and you genuinely use the information you learn from the classroom. Most students here are genuinely focused and enjoy what they're studying.

It used to be even more challenging (during quarter systems), but the recent shift in a semester system gave students a bit more time to catch their breath.
