    TA or not???

    Hi all! Do you suggesting trying out TAing even if it is not required? As of right now, I don't want to be a teacher in the future, but I am still curious about it. What do you all suggest?
  2. Hi all! I just got back from a visit at the University of Michigan. If anyone has any questions pertaining to Ann Arbor, the University, or its biomedical department (or engineering in general), please feel free to ask and I will do my best to answer based on all the info. I gained while I was there.
  3. Hello I was hoping I could receive some feedback. I am looking to apply to MIT caltech and Berkeley. I am worried they may be a bit out of my reach. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. I go to a small non prestigious urban public school Graduating with BS in ME this spring seeking fall 19 grad enrollment ultimately leading to PhD GPA-4.0/4.0 class standing - numero uno GRE (V,Q,A)- 154,164,4.5 publications- second or third coauthor on 3 relatively good journal articles, 4 peer reviewed conference papers, 2 additional journal papers submitted (first author on one of these) research experience - two full years hands on work in my field of interest Awards- ASME regional award, two poster awards (1st and second) presenting own research LOR - one is great two are good SOP - whose to say
  4. 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!
  5. Hello everybody, Can someone please suggest me universities for Masters in aerospace/ Aeronautical engineering for my profile- GRE- 310 (q-159, v-151) IELTS-7 CGPA- 8.01 1 paper published in non scopus journal 8 weeks project work at HAL 6 months work experience in Aeronautical related startup company.
  6. How rigorous and reputed is Stevens Institute of Technology for PhD in Financial Engineering?
  7. 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!
  9. 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!
  10. 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!!
  11. Hi guys. I haven't seen many Civil & Environmental Engineering applicants on the site so I figured I would start a thread for the few that exist. I would love to know what schools people have already heard back from. So far I have been accepted to PhD programs at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor, Virginia Tech, and Northwestern.

    Profile Evaluation

    Hi, I will be applying to colleges to attend during Fall 2019. My focus is mainly on Canadian Universities. Current GPA - 8.22/10 Internships - 2 Summer Internships. 1) Training in Communication systems and satellites in a public sector office 2) Training in Process Control and Sensors in a major Newsprint industry Workshops - Attended 2 robotic workshops each of 1 week long Currently doing my BTech in Electronics and Instrumentation pre-final year. But I'm very much interested in Biomedical Instrumentation and I've taken up the subject as an elective in the current semester. I will be writing my IELTS this June. Is GRE necessary if I'm applying for Canadian and Ireland universities? Also, with this profile do I have any chances with universities like McGill and UBC?

    New US News Rankings

    US News has put out their annual monkey-throwing-feces-at-a-dartboard rankings. Some schools game the rankings well, while others not so much. Here's my Q: in your opinion, what is the most overrated program? Why? For many years going I have been in awe of USC for being able to scale the rankings despite having a decidedly mediocre program. Here's why: (1) They do a great job of massaging the numbers they send US News. Each school reports its funding totals to the National Science Foundation. Unlike what they send US News, NSF gets the true numbers. No double counting funding that goes to the ISI or the physics department and whatnot. USC clocks in at a whopping #42 with only $65M in externally financed research (https://ncsesdata.nsf.gov/herd/2016/html/HERD2016_DST_55.html). (2) Their peer and recruiter ratings (3.7ish) are really low compared to their overall ranking. Now that is just damn impressive. Their reputation should put them at #20 to #30 school. (3) They have ridden their number fudging to build a great cash cow - foreign students fork over $50k for the honor of having USC name on their diploma. $50k for what basically amounts to a 5th year of undergraduate work, but with lax grading. This really is an impressive feat. A program with middle-of-the-road funding numbers builds a diploma mill, which probably generates $50M-100M in revenue. A good chunk of this money likely funds research at USC. MS students are probably the largest source of funding for research at USC! Give them some credit. * On the flip side, UCSB and Harvard always struck me as underrated by US News' metrics. On a more serious note, between ASEE data, NSF data, and citation metrics shouldn't is be possible to put together are more useful comparison of programs? The NRC used do something along these lines back in the day. Oh well. At least it is fairly straightforward, with a little digging, if a school's business model is built around a diploma mill.
  21. Hello all, it has been 10 days since I accepted my offer at U of Toronto's ECE app. website, after which they sent me an email saying that they'll start working on my offer papers and send them to me when they're done. How long should I wait before sending them a reminder ? Thanks
  22. Hello all, I've been sent an acceptance email by university x and asked to select my supervisor. They send me a confirmation that they'll begin working on my formal offer papers and will send them when they're finished. How long should I wait for them before sending a reminder? (it has been over a week already)
  23. I'm new here, so I apologize if I ask too many questions! Basically, I'm currently a senior at NYU and in May I'll be graduating with a B.A. in Math and Psychology. Going into my senior year, I had been planning on applying to several Ph.D. programs in Data Science and Statistics and my career goal was to be a data scientist. However, upon meeting with the professor whose lab I do research in, he stated that it would be very difficult for me to get into any Ph.D. program with only a year of undergraduate research experience. So, I applied to 6 Masters programs and the Ph.D. in Data Science program at NYU (this has been my top choice since sophomore year so no way I wasn't going to give it a shot!). Fast forward to now, I made it up to the interview for the Ph.D. program, but yesterday I got an email saying I was offered admission into the Master's program in the Center for Data Science, and that I am not eligible for any scholarships. I have also been admitted to the Master's of Engineering in Computer Science program at Cornell Tech, as well as a couple of other M.S. programs at NYU, and I'm waiting to hear back from the three other programs. Here's where my questions come up. As I think about it more and more, the program at Cornell Tech becomes more appealing. For one thing, I think it's a more versatile degree. They have data science courses I could take, and with the degree itself I'd be a candidate for software engineer positions. As such, after completing the degree I'd likely be able to go down either route, albeit the data science route would be a bit tougher with this degree than with the M.S. in Data Science. However, I've also found jobs in software engineering to be more appealing lately. I think around my junior year of college I started to realize a software engineer career seemed like a good fit for my interests, but by that point I thought it was too late in the game to switch routes unless I got another Bachelor's in Comp Sci - who knew! Also, I've been completely lost at where to look for scholarships. I applied to one that Cornell Tech sent out the application to, but I haven't received any merit scholarships from the programs I've been admitted to. That being said, even without scholarships, the Cornell Tech degree would be approximately $8,000 less right off the bat. Additionally, it's a one year program, as opposed to the one at NYU which is a two year program. Is it presumptuous of me to think it'd be reasonable to take out $40-50k in loans, with the expectation that with the Computer Science engineering degree I'll likely be able to make decent money as a software engineer in NYC not long after graduating next spring? If it helps, I'll be graduating from undergrad with about $10,500 in loans, and if I do get a well-paying job after grad school my plan is to live as if I'm making $40k a year until my loans are paid off. I'm the first in my family to go to college, let alone grad school, so any advice is greatly appreciated! I've heard that some companies will pay for you to get a M.Eng., but honestly at this point I'd rather get the degree first since I don't think I'm qualified for many tech jobs currently. As a recap, my two main questions are: 1. Is it a smart decision to do a Master of Engineering in C.S. at Cornell Tech when I'm open to becoming either a software engineer or data scientist? 2. Is it reasonable to assume I'll be able to get a decent job with a M.Eng. degree in C.S. and that I'd be able to pay of ~$60k in loans in a reasonable amount of time? Thank you!
  24. Hi all, Did any graduate applicant receive an official offer from the ECE department at UofT ? (still waiting) Thanks
  25. Hi everyone First post. I am senior EE undergrad student specialized in photonics, currently in the process of looking for graduate programs (mainly masters programs) to apply to next year. I recently came across the MONBUKAGAKUSHO:MEXT scholarship and am very interested in pursuing a masters degree from the University of Tokyo. My problem is that I can't find much information about the structure of the EE masters program at U.Tokyo online, or at least not in English. I have read somewhere (one of the few scraps of info I've come across) that it is very research based, with almost no taught component (courses). Is this true? And does anyone have any information on the program (Tokyo EE masters) in general? Is anyone here currently enrolled in the University of Tokyo (in any grad or masters program)? Any info or useful links? Thanks
