University of Illinois - Urbana Champaign vs. University of Texas - Austin: Materials Science Ph D.


Recommended Posts

Both are great schools of course, UT Austin has a professor that's world renowned, and is willing to offer me a position.

UIUC has a stronger all around program it seems, though I won't be matched up until I start in the fall.

I would prefer the cooler climate in Illinois but that's really not a deciding factor. I'd be by myself to begin with if I went to Illinois, whereas for Texas I'd be with a classmate that's also relocating down there for his profession, again, not a deciding factor.

Both schools have really great projects that I'd like to work on,

So which one would you guys suggest?

I'd choose UT Austin if the position is promissing. UT Austin is a great school and Austin is a great place to live. Its more of freezing cold weather in Illinois I don't know if you really like that better!
