Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2016

Brown has one of the most generous Computer Science graduate program: all PhD students have guaranteed 5-year funding, which is not true for many of the places that I looked at when applying. PhD students are matched to advisors as soon as they enter, so no one needs to worry about not being able to find an advisor, but it is also not difficult to switch advisors if research interest changes later. The atmosphere in the department is really friendly, open, and supportive. Grad students are encouraged to voice their opinions in many issues in the department, ranging from office renovation to faculty recruitment. Many social events happen on a weekly basis, as well as research and industry talks. The cost of living is quite affordable in Providence.

Brown CS has a great network for research in the New England area, including MIT, UPenn, Brandeis etc. Also the department administration works very hard to connect students to potential employers and good job/internship opportunities.

Brown CS is a small but very focused program. Faculties and the department itself are very committed to not only achieving excellence in their research, but also teaching and advising their graduate students.

The department is small, which means we have more connections with the faculty members and peers, but it also means that sometimes the courses are not comprehensive.

There is a free environment to choose your advisor. Graduate courses are suitable for Phd to improve the ability of research. Industrial Partners Program (IPP) provides a great opportunity for Master. However, the department is small.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2013

Master of Electrical Engineering in Brown university is a great program, but not as much strong as other programs in Brown university (for example Computer Science) Its still under development but could give the student all the chances for success, and could provide him with various research and work opportunities.
