  1. Received offers from Purdue and Mannheim for their Economics programs (both full funding). Which one should I choose? Please. Any suggestion matters for me now.
  2. Name o the group is: Purdue MS SLP Class of 2021!! Search it and join!
  3. So I am deciding between UCSD and Purdue for my graduate study (ECE). Here are some of my own analysis: UCSD Better internship/job opportunities Better location. In CA near Silicon Valley Sunshine beaches seals!!! Better overall reputation Purdue Better chance to receive funding Easier to transfer to PhD program (Slightly) better ranking in ECE Cheaper living expenses I'm positive to continue pursuing a PhD after MS study, so if just considering chance of admission to PhD program I'd vote for Purdue since I was told by UCSD admission office that chance of transfering to PhD program is rare. However, I visited SD in March and I LOVEEEE that city! I already spent four years in midwest and I'm not so much a fan of it. If I ended up finishing my MS and hopefully PhD in Purdue, that's gonna be six years, and I honestly don't know if I can handle another six-year cold and snowy weather. Neither promised me with funding but seems that chance of receiving funding is better in Purdue. Open to all ideas/comments/suggestions. --------------------------Some Add-ons---------------------- UCSD track: Robotics, Intelligence and Control Purdue track: Signal Processing UCSD has limitations on course registrations outside my track while Purdue does not.
  4. 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?
  5. I have received an offer for the professional mechanical engineering masters course. I wanted to get more information regarding the course along with future prospects. I believe this is a recently launched course and in results search, people were calling it a cash cow. Not sure what they mean. Any light on the topic will be helpful.
  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?

    Purdue PULSe interview

    So I would be doing a 20 minute Skype interview for the PULSe program at Purdue University. As this is an interview with a panel and not with a specific POI, I am curious about the questions that may be asked and how exactly should I be prepared for it! Is it also just to confirm my verbal capabilities as an international student or should I panic more about it? Does anyone also know about the acceptance rate post-interview? Thank you in advance
  9. Hi, I am an international student. I have been accepted from these 3 universities mentioned in the title. However, I really cannot choose since there are too many parameters involved. Boston: Insanely good money(fellowship) , really good location, decent teachers Purdue: Insanely good teaching(?), High prestige(?), very bad location, decent money Maryland: Very good money(fellowship), RA position with a good advisor, good location Since I am an international, I really would like to know your thoughts about the prestige of these schools and also your experiences about these schools. How are they known by U.S citizens? Which school has a better research output? (Even though I looked at THE Rankings, I believe it is better if I get more info. about these schools)
  10. Hi! Is anyone else applying for masters programs in marketing? I barely see any updates for this on the front page

    CMU ETIM vs Purdue MEM

    Hi everyone! I've been accepted to the Dual Master's Program in Mechanical Engineering and Engineering & Technology Innovation Management at CMU and the Master's in Engineering Management Program at Purdue. I'm having a hard time deciding between the two. I'm a mechanical engineering undergrad with no work experience, and my short-term aim is to find a job in the industry after graduation. CMU Pros: (i) An MS in Mechanical Engineering means I have the option of choosing a core engineering sector job after graduation. The E&TIM MS would open up sectors like product management, technical consultancy, operations and supply chain management etc. for me. (ii) The brand name, plus the inherent emphasis on technology that comes with any program at CMU. (iii) Small batch size. Cons: (i) Expensive. Costs twice as much as Purdue. (ii) Has a 3-month internship component, compared to a 12 month long co-op program at Purdue. Since my primary aim is to work in the industry after graduation, I suppose a longer US-based work experience will give me an edge, in addition to better networking opportunities. (iii) The mechanical engineering department at CMU is not as good as that at Purdue. Purdue Pros: (i) Relatively cheaper. Which means I have the option to go back to my home country and pay back my education loans from there, in the worst case scenario where I don't like the US work culture at all (can't do this with CMU since the loan is much larger). (ii) As stated earlier, a 12-month long co-op internship gives me a better chance of securing employment after gradation. Plus there's an opportunity to convert that internship into a job. This co-op is the biggest plus in my opinion. (iii) Small batch size. Cons: (i) Most of the alumni here go into core engineering jobs initially, before moving on to engineering or product management profiles. This makes me doubtful as to how this degree is different from a traditional Mechanical Engineering MS degree. (ii) The school's overall reputation is a bit lower than CMU (?) Any ideas you guys might have on my dilemma?
  12. In Results, many of the Purdue IE Ph.D candidates are receiving no-funding offers. Is there anyone who got an offer with funding? The admin said I could negotiate with my advisor...Would that work? Thanks a lot for discussing..
  13. Hi guys! I'm having a really hard time deciding between Purdue, GWU, and Penn State. If there are any graduate students who are in these programs or simply if you have any insight I would greatly appreciate it! Purdue and Penn State are ranked super well but I'm mainly worried about the surrounding areas being too rural and then GWU sounds great but is definitely the most expensive option. Please help me decide, thanks!!
  14. I recently received admission offers from U of Michigan's MS in Biostatistics program and Purdue's Statistics program, and I'm having trouble deciding between the two! I plan to pursue a Ph.D. after graduation. Both programs have pros and cons, and it is tough to reach a decision. For example, the U of Michigan's Ph.D. in Biostatistics highly prefer their own MS students and has a higher ranking. While Purdue allows MS students, who wish to transfer to the Ph.D. program take the qualifying exams. I don't have a clear research interest yet. Will an MS or Ph.D. in Biostatistics narrow my choice in the future? I'm leaning towards Purdue since I am more interested in working in IT industry. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
  15. Hi, Just creating a forum topic so we can discuss among ourselves any questions/concerns/plans we may have. I am creating this specifically for accepted electrical engineering students but other engineers and majors are welcome too.

    ChemE MS Descision

    UPenn vs Texas A&M vs CMU vs Purdue I have received acceptances from these 4 schools till now. I am mostly interested in pursuing a job after my Masters (with an inclination for environmental and sustainability related work). Not much interested in continuing the program to pursue a PhD. How would you compare the curriculum and the career services available in these four schools? Also to be taken into consideration is the high tuition at UPenn and CMU. But then, there's the Ivy School tag that comes with UPenn and the low tuition at Texas A&M. It would also be great if you could discuss the assistantship scenarios in these schools. I am awaiting results from UCLA, UT Austin (MS in Environmental and Water Resources engineering). It would be great if you could bring these into consideration as well. Let me know what you all think!
  18. Hi all, I'm looking to pursue masters in the area of operations research and optimization. Pretty keen on doing research and will mostly move into academia (or a research-based job at the least). I've been accepted into the following schools: 1. Purdue MSIE (Thesis track) 2. Columbia MSOR 3. NCSU MOR 4. UIUC MSIE Waiting to hear from UC Berkeley (MS Program) and UMich (MS) I'm extremely confused about which to pick. I've more or less narrowed it down to Purdue and Columbia from my current admits. Purdue seems to have a clear research orientation (but not in optimization), while Columbia has a very heavy focus on quant/applied math (research focus seems lower). The other aspects to consider are the location and cost. In summary, 1. OR / Optimization - Columbia 2. Research - Purdue 3. Location - Columbia 4. Cost - Purdue I'd be grateful for any inputs you can provide! Do I accept Columbia ($4000 tuition deposit) and wait for Berkeley and UMich to make a decision? Oh, and FYI, I need to confirm my decision with Columbia by this Friday! Thanks!

    Purdue CS PhD Status

    Hi, all! I noticed some lucky guys received the offers (CS Ph.D.) from Purdue. Does anyone know whether they will continue to send the offer or not? I was interviewed at the end of January, but there is still no further notifications. Feeling nervous about that. If there is no email this week, will it be a silent rejection.....?
  22. This is a tad premature seeing as I have not been accepted to Maryland yet, but I am curious if I am missing something here. My research over the last couple of years has focused on developing components for integrated plasmonic devices. I hope to stay in this field or closely related fields in graduate school (integrated photonics/quantum optics). I am fortunate enough to have been accepted to Purdue (fellowship) and UIUC (RA). I am seriously considering only one other school - the University of Maryland. So here's my question - UIUC unquestionably has a better reputation than the other schools in general, but it seems like a really weak choice for my interests. Aside from Kwait at UIUC, no one else seems to have a group churning out research on the level (as measured by the imperfect Google Scholar h-index) of Shalaev/Boltasseva/Bermel/Weiner/Qi or Waks/Hafezi/Munday/Murphy. Plus, Purdue comes with all the resources behind its Purdue Quantum Center and Maryland has the Joint Quantum Institute. I am open to an academic career but I am by no means gunning for it. UIUC is the odd man out, right? It sounds stupid when I say it out loud, but I think this is right. This is obviously a different calculation if I was biased toward electronic devices/semiconductors. Any advice will be appreciated. - Entangled

    Purdue Online Engineering Program

    Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone else on here has applied to one of the online engineering graduate programs at Purdue. I'd like to get some insight on what other students think about it and how long you had to wait for a decision. Thanks!
  24. If i want to pursue masters in cs with specialization in computer graphics at purdue . Which one would be a better choice between masters in Computer science and a masters in computer graphics technology. What would be my research and career prospects after either ?. Is it true that the CGT degree is more professionally than research oriented?.
  25. I want to do a PhD in CS. Which one do you recommend and why? Personally speaking, I feel Oxford has better reputation. Its ranking is 3rd-4th in CS for several years.
