Hey guys, I am an international student applying for Master's in Mechanical Engineering (Control System). I have received admits from Rochester Inst. of Technology(RIT) and Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). I am confused as to which university should I go forward with. I intend to do a non-thesis program with major focus on getting a job once I complete my masters. While RIT has a strong co-op program, WPI has location advantage being close to Boston (robotics hub). Any suggestions are welcome. Thank you!
I have got admits from both the universities for the fall 2020 intake, I wanted to know which one is better call to take. WPI has a heavy project based curriculum and I am an international student, so the tuition would almost be the same for both the universities. Also WPI has a location benefit of being closer to Boston. But some more insight would be really helpful.
Hello guys, I need some guidance as I will be applying for Phd programs for 2017 with cool projects but low GPA and no publications. I designed robots, worked on projects for many years. I even started to build things when I was in high school. During my undergraduate, I involved with research, worked as a research assistant at biomedical lab for two years. Then, I did a research internship at one of the finest universities in Turkey about a year. Now, I am pursuing a masters degree on mechatronics and simultaneously working as an r&d engineer at a small startup firm designing robots for handicapped people. I am able to get at least one stellar reference letter from my professors who know me and my projects. I don’t have any publication but I have almost 2 years of research experience. I have a crappy undergrad GPA, 2.70, with no good reason; and my masters GPA is 3.21. I have worked full time while pursuing masters, thats the explanation of 3.21. My GRE score will probably get around 320 - and my TOEFL score will be in 99-105 range) Do you think I have shot at these universities: Worcester Polytechnic Institute Oregon State University San Diego State University (has joint doctoral programs with UCSD - I have no idea how hard is it to get admitted) University of Connecticut These universities have awesome research topics that I want to work on them. I might be able to add 2 or more universities to my list.
