  2. Hi I am from a developing country and I got a scholarship to pursue a Master’s degree in the U.S. but I failed some courses and I got dismissed. I continued my program in another campus, still in the U.S. but it didn’t work as I wish. Again, I failed some courses but I could not repeat those. The problem was my sponsor. They could not give me another funding to repeat those courses so I had to go home. I realized that I was lack of academic training particularly on courses that I failed. I am applying to other Master in Chemical Engineering because I already have some credit from those campuses with B, A-, and A and I wish to transfer that credits. Any idea on other Master’s program suitable for a student with Chem. Eng. Background? What should I do to strengthen my application due to my shortcomings? Thanks
  3. I am currently considering between these choices: - UC Berkeley Mechanical Engineering (Product Design/ Controls) [https://me.berkeley.edu/graduate/meng/] - Penn Robotics [https://www.grasp.upenn.edu/academics/masters] - Cornell Engineering Management [https://www.engmanagement.cornell.edu/em] My background is in Mechanical Engineering from a top 5 undergraduate school. Mainly hope to develop a deep specialization in robotics, controls, design for manufacturability, hardware systems development on the technical side, and take 2-3 management courses from the business school. Highly interested in technology entrepreneurship and have attended programs/ started companies previously. If any current students or prospective students can share your opinions, it would be incredibly helpful!

    Advice for Future Engineering Applicants

    Hi everyone! I have seen this sort of forum for other disciplines, so I thought it might be nice to have this for engineering students wanting to applying to graduate school at some point. My advice would be this: 1. Don't undervalue for GRE scores, especially your quant scores. I hate the GRE with a passion because I suck at standardized tests that are there to trick you and steal your money, but it is a part of the application process, so it is important to schools somewhat. I think my average quant score did not make me standout, but I also had other things going for me, so I don't think it is as simple as my GRE scores being kind of crappy. You just got figure out if your score is "good enough" compared to the other parts of your application. 2. LORs are really important. Make sure they all don't say the same thing and they give details about who you are versus giving a generalized view. You can give your letter writers pointers if necessary. Good luck, future applicants! Recent or past applicants, please provide any advice you have!
  5. I was recently accepted into: MS Astronautical Engineering from USC MS Mechanical Engineering from Columbia MS Astronautics from Purdue MS Aerospace Engineering from UCLA These are all fully online degrees that will have no difference with the in class degrees and they will be fully funded by my employer. I am having trouble choosing between the four. I understand the program reputation and advisor/professor quality outweighs school reputation but I'm stuck on finding out how to compare those things. Which do you think would be the best of the four? I know technically Purdue is ranked the highest of them all for graduate engineering so it would make sense if it had the best course quality but it is not a huge name on the west coast. And I've also heard the Purdue is for engineers that strictly want to do engineering (not venture into business, management, consulting.) For now engineering is my plan but I don't want the other paths to be closed for me) Columbia has the Ivy league tag and is the most prestigious but I'm not sure if this applies to its graduate engineering program. USC and UCLA are basically head to head in California and between the two I'm leaning towards USC because I like the program more. USC also has an amazing alumni network in california shich would be helpful. Any suggestions?
  6. I think I've narrowed my options down to two which I think would be the best fits for me. Both are top ten schools and have offered similar funding with no need to TA. Here's the pro's and con's of both for me: Purdue Pros: Multiple great PI possibilities, all have interesting research West Lafayette has a relatively cheap cost of living Purdue Cons: No one works in the field I was planning to pursue City is small and not close to much Michigan Pros: Great PI who works in field I was planning to pursue Nice city (Ann Arbor) Close to home Michigan Cons: The PI is much more active in another field of research rather than the one I'm interested in; however, he's indicated that he does care deeply about pursuing it, even though it is more of a side project. More expensive cost of living It would be great to hear opinions and advice, especially from people who have had experience at either school, or have had to make a similar tough choice. Thanks!!
  7. I was recently accepted into: MS Astronautical Engineering from USC MS Mechanical Engineering from Columbia MS Astronautics from Purdue MS Aerospace Engineering from UCLA These are all fully online degrees that will have no difference with the in class degrees and they will be fully funded by my employer. I am having trouble choosing between the four to find a balance between course quality and reputation. Course quality so I actually learn something useful and reputation so it helps me look more impressive compared to other equally qualified job applicants. I will most likely stay on the West Coast if that matters. Which do you think would be the best of the four? I know technically Purdue is ranked the highest of them all for graduate engineering so it would make sense if it had the best course quality but it is not a huge name and I feel like the other 3 would be chosen over Purdue becuase of their reputation and prestige. Columbia has the Ivy league tag and is the most prestigious but I'm not sure if this applies to its graduate engineering program. USC and UCLA are basically head to head in California and between the two I'm leaning towards USC because I like the program more. Any suggestions?

    Rice Vs Virginia Tech

    Hello, I got admitted to Rice PhD engineering program and to Virginia Tech PhD engineering program. Both fully funded however, I can have much better life with rice stipend compared to VT's where I can just survive. Here is my question, the adviser for Rice is very young he graduated in 2018 from top 5 school, he is very nice with five papers, two of them are published in nature journal. Also, his lab is concerned with exactly the area that I desire and want to do research in. On the other hand the adviser in VT is became a full professor 3 years ago, he is not one of the nicest people you will meet but he isn't very bad. He have a very good number of citations and have running projects and he graduated from top 1 university, however I will be doing research not exactly in the area that I prefer. I want to eventually pursue a career in academia as a faculty member, Which choice have the higher chance to make this easier, the more prestigious Rice or the more experienced professor. Note: I'm an international student.
  10. Hello everyone, Figured I would make an account to continue in the time-honored tradition of collective freak-outs in the month leading up to graduate admissions. Do you know of any school that has already sent out admission results to PhD applicants in chemical engineering for the fall 2019 season? If you've gained admission to a specific school, would you mind sharing your profile (GPA, GRE, TOEFL if you're an international, research experience, and so on)? Thank you and may the odds be ever in your favor!
  11. Hi everyone. I'm planning to apply for a PhD in Chemical Engineering for a Spring term intake. Therefore, I contacted via e-mail some US universities that accept Spring admissions (I checked it on their websites). However, most of those universities said that "very few students are admitted for Spring", "we admit for Spring only if there are available spots" or "if a professor requests a Spring admission for a certain student, we can consider it". Based on all these answers, I understand that most of those universities does not have a cohort for Spring admitted students, but can accept some students occasionally according to the department’s needs. As the main term of admission is Fall, I am afraid that Spring admissions for engineering graduate programs are so less common (or rare) that it might not worth the try. My point is: does a Spring application worth the try for most engineering PhD programs? Has anyone here ever been admitted for Spring in a Chemical Engineering graduate program (or related areas) in a US university? Thanks in advance!

    Does anyone have news on admission for 2019 session?
  13. Hi everyone, I haven't seen any discussion of Aerospace Engineering applications (MS and PhD) for Fall 2019 so I thought I could get us started. Excited to hear from you all! :)
  14. Hey everyone. I recently graduated this semester. My plan is to work for two years in order to save up money for a masters program. Right now I have my sight set on the masters program at University of Houston in ME/Aerospace Engineering. However, I am in a bit of a predicament. I graduated with a BS in physics from the University of Texas at Austin. My GPA was low. I got a 2.94 gpa on 63 credit hours. I only had 63 credit hours since I transferred from the University of Texas at San Antonio. My GPA there was a 3.78 on almost 80 hours. However, when you combine the GPAs, it comes out to 3.42. My questions are: will grad schools look at the combined GPA, or will they only look at the GPA of the institution I graduated from? And also I have 2.5 years of research with two projects done. Could this possibly help my chances? And will working for two years up my chances of getting into a masters program as well? I have yet to take the GRE. I’m

    Visit to University of Michigan

    Hi! I got accepted in a program to visit the University of Michigan at the end of this month. While there, I will be visiting the department I am applying to as well as attending a symposium where graduate students give poster presentations on their research. I have yet to send in my application, but will be doing so soon. I have a few questions for people who have gone on visits before: 1. What should I wear? 2. Should I email professors I am interested in working with beforehand to see if I can meet up with them if I have time to do so? 3. What should I see in Ann Arbor while I am there? Any recommendations for cool places, restaurants, etc.? 4. Any other additional advice would be great! P.S. I am applying to mainly biomedical engineering PhD programs. Thanks so much!

    Post Baccalaureate Opportunities

    Hi all! I just got my Bachelor's in May, and am in the process of applying to PhD porgrams starting in the Fall 2019. I decided to take a gap year so I could focus on applying and hopefully obtain some additional research experience. I am having a rough time finding research opportunities, however. I have been searching since February, and one of the reasons I didn't find anything because most programs started during the summer and I was traveling then. Do any of you know of short-term research opportunities lasting 6 months or so? My background is in materials science and engineering, but I want to focus my PhD research in biomaterials and tissue engineering, which means I am applying to a lot of biomedical engineering grad programs. I appreciate any help! Thanks so much in advance!

    LOR for PhD admissions

    I am a Masters graduate in Engineering (electrical) and I've been working at a hardware company since my graduation about 1.5 years ago. I'm planning to apply for PhD (US & international). I did not do a thesis for my masters - my degree was coursework based. My question is- can I submit LORs for PhD programs in engineering from some of my supervisors/managers/mentors at work? I've interned at work at a couple of companies in highly technical roles. And since I haven't done thesis in my masters, I have better chances of obtaining strong LORs from work than school. I have this question because, from what I know, PhD program is largely academic/research oriented and I'm worried if the LORs I submit through work will even be valued at all. BTW, my supervisors/mentors are PhD holders as well. Thanks!
  23. Hi everybody! I recently graduated from college with my BA in Liberal Arts. While I loved my education, I also am very interested in pursuing a career in chemical engineering. I'm taking several classes at community college so that I can apply to graduate programs in CA. My question is what programs are good in CA for ChE? Do I have a shot into getting into these sort of programs? Which ones are good coming from a non-engineering background? Is there any place like BU, which has the LEAP program, that makes it easier to transition? Thank you!
  24. I am trying to decide between which two Biotechnology programs to attend in the fall. The first program is the NYU Biotechnology and Entrepreneurship Program which is great because of its interdisciplinary curriculum in both biotechnology and business. They also offerered me a generous scholarship. On visiting the campus and speaking with faculty it seems promising. I was selected for an additional scholarship and feel like the financial aid office is forthcoming with working with me to cover tuition costs. The research areas are good with opportunities to do research at the renowned memorial Sloan Kettering cancer center. Their career center also seems to be very effective with support for internships, interviews, jobs and whatnot and NY is at the center of it all. There is however no denying that cost of living and accommodation in the city is ridiculously high. On the other hand, Northwestern University's Biotechnology program comes with a minor in Engineering management/ Entrepreneurship with a similar flexibility to NYU but with a seemingly greater concentration on developing wet lab skills. It's location in Evanston, IL a Chicago school town is nice and it's a large campus. On visiting the campus, the faculty also seem welcoming and they have interesting personal development courses, site-visits to biotechnology companies on the east coast for networking, career fairs and great internship assistance. The tuition is much higher than that of NYU and the scholarship while generous, doesn't cover much. I would have to look to loans and aid to cover the chunk. The research areas are also nice with opportunities to work in regenerative medicine, tissue engineering and cancer biology at the northwestern school of medicine. At this point, I don't know which school to consider because I would gladly go to any of them as they are both great schools and I'm privileged to be considered for both. I don't know if Northwestern is worth taking out large loans for in comparison to NYU that the tuition is mostly covered by scholarship. I can't imagine which program would make me stand out with limitless opportunities at the end of the duration. I need any suggestions, opinions, ideas and help that would enable me to see some light.. Thank you!!
