Which for these two schools would be suitable for embedded systems? Please clarify in terms of courses, assistance opportunities and jobs. I'm confused and finding it difficult to choose from. Need a different point of view/opinion/guidance. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
Hi I have received funded admissions to the Civil Engineering Master's program at UVa, UIUC, and Virginia Tech. In terms of research interest match between me and the supporting faculty, I would rank them like this: UVa(Best), VT, UIUC (Good match but not great). The faculty member who has chosen to support my admission at UIUC wasn't my top pick at the department so it has become a bit challenging for me to choose UIUC. In terms department reputation usually, UIUC is the most reputable and UVa the least. Given this is a master's program, I might do my Ph.D. studies at another university based on where my research would lead me, so I want to consider the impact of choosing a well-respected program on opening up my options for my Ph.D. Simply put, my question is: How much weight should I give to University vs. the match in research interest with the supporting faculty for choosing the program that I will attend? Sincerely,
