UIUC vs UMich Masters in Mechanical Engineering


Recommended Posts



I got two admits from UIUC and UMich Ann Arbor. Both the universities are good in terms of their research profiles.

However, UMich is much more expensive as compared to UIUC. Also being an international student, I would intend to reduce my expenditure. (I have not received any funding from both universities)


Michigan is higher ranked for mechanical engineering with the auto industry present in Detroit.(I do not know the job scenario as of now) Also, what I got to know is UIUC is based in a village. I don't know how that would affect future job prospects.


If anybody is aware of the funding opportunities as a TA/RA in both universities, that would be of real help.


Please could you help to decide which one to go for?
