Student & Graduate Reviews (70)
Superbly awesome. Education was highest quality and changed my life.
I received a great, well-rounded education at a top-notch university. It motivated me to move onto further my education working in the social service arena (I went on to get a master's degree in Counseling/Psychology). The campus is beautiful and the staff excellent. I highly suggest doing an internship during your senior year. I received financial aid all 4 years I attended.
Quality of teachers and instruction are mostly stellar. Student-to-teacher ratio can be disappointing the first year or two. You must be proactively pursuing resources to find the aid or advice needed for your particular major, research or internship opportunities related to your career goals, or to find alternate sources of funding. With a school this large, this can often be an overwhelming process to find the who, what, where for each item of concern.
The University of Washington offers a competitive and diverse array of degree opportunities. If you want to earn a degree that is highly revered among employers and valuable in your job search, the University of Washington is a great choice. There is also a great deal of community and involvement opportunities for every hobby or unique interest you may have.
The UW is a great school, but I only experienced a small slice of it: the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, where the teachers and courses were excellent, the other students smart and engaging, and the facilities top-notch.
Everything I am today I learned from Washngton,a wonderful expreienced faculty that has reshaped my understanding to the modern world ,it has enabled me inspire others in more ways I didnt think I could ,as I go travelling all over the world I feel quite confident interacting and facing all forms of social ,political and economic forces the world has to offer,What makes it so special is the approach it has given me to challenge myself and realize in life it's more of knowlegde and wisdom that works. I am proud to be a bona fide student of Washington University.
Attending UW was a great experience- I was challenged, and I felt like the professors were top-notch. I enjoyed going to school there even if I ultimately didn't end up using my degree.
I definitely appreciated the smaller classes with more discussion and hands on learning. It is very important to know your learning style & find a school that fits your needs. It's silly to go to a school where you are 1 of 1,000+ in a lecture hall when you are a hands on learner like myself. I learned the hard way!
The professors in the program were actively involved in the field, which is very important since CompLing is constantly evolving. I thought the profs were excellent, and the material covered was relevant and widely applicable to various sub-disciplines. I did dislike the cost of tuition; it's more expensive than other UW graduate degrees. That said, because of the degree, I now have an excellent job, so the cost ended up being worth it.
University was a time of self discovery and exploring new ideas. Developing good studying and learning techniques will benefit you in which ever direction you decide to follow in life.
