Student & Graduate Reviews

3.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

The graduate program is highly specialized but strongly connected to the industry partners for research. Financial aid for international students are limited in this department primarily due to small number of corporate sponsors. The workload is a lot for graduate students. The use of technology (such as Moodle, email, open source software) in all the classes have facilitated an open environment for learning and collaboration. The faculty are approachable and supportive. I can walk through campus safely every night and cost of living is reasonable for a student budget of $1000 per month.

The new facilities and instrumentation are great. Centennial Campus is beautiful and accessible. I think the departmental staff are very helpful and there is a nice atmosphere of collaboration in the MSE department. The department is actually growing, although it's only a top-20 or so program in MSE currently. I think the rank will increase over time. Housing is not the cheapest but definitely not as expensive as some other places. The climate is nice and the area surrounding Raleigh is a great mix of nature and downtown attractions.

It is a fairly small program and all of the professors have an open door policy. If you need help at any time it's very easy to get it! We are also close to other large universities so collaborations are possible.

My program is spread out across many departments, so it can be difficult to form professional or personal relationships with the people in the program, but they go out of their way to have regular social gatherings and seminars to keep the program cohesive.
