Columbia (mech) vs CMU (materials)

Recommended Posts


I'm trying to decide between Columbia (Mechanical) and Carnegie Mellon (MSE). My field of interest between mechanics and materials, so I've applied for accordingly. Both are not funded programs and I'm told that for both of them getting funding as RA/TA is difficult. My immediate goal would be to take up a job. Which one would be better for employment?

I've heard Columbia is more of a business-minded school and also NYC has relatively less opportunities for engineering than for business. But then there's the Ivy league tag.

What should I do?
