user1366 Posted May 5, 2009 Share Posted May 5, 2009 Hi guys, I've an admission without fund from Penn State in Industrial Engineering for PhD (IE rank= 5). I've another admission that is full fund for 4 years as RA from University of Miami in Industrial Engineering for PhD (IE rank=?). $24800 stipend + $26640 Tuition + $955 Insurance. I don't know which one should I accept. I understand that Penn State has financial crisis this year! almost everyone get admission without fund from Penn State. It seems that there is no money there. However, it has one of the best Industrial Engineering departments in the world. The offer of Miami is very tempting. very good money for the whole period of study including summers. But its rank is not good. its world rank is around 195 according to this site (http://www.webometrics.info/top6000.asp). One of my concerns is about job rating for Miami graduates. I know currently job market is not in a good situation, but in general, is IE department in University of Miami really as prestigious in job market as PSU? How hard is finding adviser and/or financial support in IE department in PSU? Which one do you select if you were in my shoes?!! Thanks in advance for your advises.
