This is a great program for networking and learning. It is challenging but you always manage to get your work done.

4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

The program is small, but personable. The professors care about your progress personally as well as professionally. They are also very willing to provide any necessary resources when they are requested.
4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Chemical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros My school and program is competitive as it pertains to chemical engineering The cost of living in the surrounding area is affordable The faculty are helpful, knowledgeable and challenge me The financial aid is appropriate Cons: It is incredibly difficult to get an internship as my PhD advisor is not open to me or my fellow grad students (within our research group) doing one. Securing an internship may be crucial regarding job prospects upon graduation. As my PhD comes to a close, obtaining a job upon graduation takes up more and more of my thought life.
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Landscape Design
Graduation Year: 2016

The landscape architecture program has an amazing relationship with local professionals. They come to our critiques, invite us to their offices, and regularly provide feedback. Not to mention they give internships and hire graduates. The College of Design has great technological resources (just today I used the photography studio to record a video in front of the green screen with a professional camera checked out from the IT lab and then recored audio in the sound studio) and the scientific expertise across the university provides a knowledge base beyond the standard design school. I picked this school because it was my most affordable option but now I am so glad I'm here.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2016

This program has so much to offer; understanding and knowledgeable instructors who are geared toward practical teaching is probably the most important point I would like to mention.
4.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2018

I have thoroughly enjoyed my first semester at NC State's Computer Science program. The classes are captivating and the professor's are active in the community. The program is large so there are plenty of research opportunities, creating a diverse environment in computer science itself. The quality of student is high, as most students are very interested in their studies and especially enjoy pursuing their research. There's plenty to do in Raleigh and the greater triangle area. All in all NC State is a great school.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2019

Pros: Environment and quality of education Cons: Availability of funds and financial aides
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Other Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

I am attending NCSU as a distance education student part time while working full time, so many of the above criteria such as surrounding area and transportation do not apply. The distance ed. program is well established and functions smoothly, I've had very few technical issues accessing course material and professors have always been helpful when I had questions regarding the material. It is challenging to achieve work-life-school balance, but the workload tends to be reasonable and the classes are flexible. The materials science courses I've taken have been directly applicable to my career in the nuclear power industry.
5.0 out of 5.0
