Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016

Incredible programs available for engineering, business and science- based. Since Clarkson is a smaller school, it allows for more opportunities for one-on-one interactions with your professors. All lectures are taught by professors with doctoral degrees and not by teaching assistants, which may be common at larger institutions. As freshman, most students take similar classes such as General Chemistry, Physics, and Calculus, therefore these class tend to be larger (>60 students). However, during your sophomore and so forth, it is not uncommon for lectures to have under 20 students. Clarkson has one of the highest job placement of all colleges in U.S., above 95%. This is mostly due to our incredible Career Center, who prepares us as freshman. We have 2 career fairs throughout the academic year, with hundreds of companies looking for potential students to join them in internships, co-op, and post-graduate jobs. These career fairs apply to all level of students, not just seniors. If you are planning on entering as any type of engineering major, to graduate from Clarkson, you are you require to complete one term of an internship or co-op. Not only is this great experience to prep you in your potential career, it is fantastic networking. It looks great on your resume for future employers and it is not unlikely for the company that you interned/co-op with to offer you a full-time position upon graduation regardless of your current academic standing (sophomore, junior, senior). All in all, if you want to part of an incredible environment, where faculty and staff are constantly working to better prepare you to enter your desired career field, I would highly recommend Clarkson University.

Great experience. Very hands on. Flexibility with some classes, and the majors change with the skills marketplace and evolve to current needs.

Degree: Civil Engineering

CU offers good programs in a small community. I plan to go back for my masters in environmental science and engineering in the fall. The teachers for the environmental program care about their students greatly. Unfortunately I had several bad experiences with civil teachers at Clarkson university. They didn't seem to care about the interest of the students.
