Electrical and Computer Engineering PhD: Purdue vs Maryland vs Boston University

Recommended Posts


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)
