Jc - 4/3/2019
Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2020
"This is the worst school I've been to, It all started when they sweet talk to you about how fast easy it is to finish. It was great at the beginning, however the problem came when they assure me I would get financial grants. I hesitated to sign up to classes, but they assure me it wouldn't be a problem. Turns out I got my grants deny, something that wasn't their fault, but I told them from the beginning that I wanted to make sure I would get the grants. This school under my impression only cares about getting people in, communication was really bad, whenever I call the adviser that helped me from the beginning suddenly was busy, and wouldn't answer my emails or calls. Good luck, do your research and don't get convinced like I did."

Done with Everything School-related - 10/13/2018
Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017
"At first, things were fine aside from some of the outdated materials that some of the courses had (seriously, why would we need to code anything entirely in Assembly language? Also, nobody would use those Freescale microcontrollers considering things such as the Arduino Uno and Raspberry Pi.), but then on my third year (which was supposed to be my final year), it was pretty obvious that my campus was having money problems. Everybody and their grandma was not happy with the class scheduling issues which held us back about a year. It was even to the point that GI Bill funding ran out. However, the worst issue was how the classes have changed. They basically got rid of the full-time teachers and replaced them with tutors (who were only available about twice a week), and most of the classes were online despite the fact that we signed up for on campus/hybrid courses. We even had to do that robot car class online which came with outdated and somewhat confusing instructions. If it wasn't for me learning to program things outside of school, I never would have felt prepared for my career choice. I would have transferred schools, but I was afraid that I would end up starting over considering that I was around 80% done with my courses when these issues were getting noticeable and I didn't think it would have taken that much time. What makes this a lot worse is that an amazing teacher from high school recommended this school to me and he inspired me to apply. I highly doubt he knew what was going on, so I can't blame him at all. I should have just gone to a traditional school."

Christopher Landeros - 10/28/2017
Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2013
"I attended DeVry University for a Bacherlor's of Science in Electronic Engineering Technology starting in 2010, and graduated in 2013. I personally tend to be a student who doesn't require a lot of interaction or support from the instructors. For this reason my time was best maximized for the online/ Hybrid classes, which there were a good amount offered. In general I found the curriculum to be fairly rigorous, and well suited for students who had an interest in finishing their undergraduate degree as fast as possible. The small class sizes were nice as well. In general - the program was effective at getting me the qualifications to enter the work force, but there was nothing notably exceptional about the education. It was thorough, and got the job done."

Richard R - 1/21/2017
Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 1994
"I am a 1994 BSEET grad from the Phoenix campus and I am a multiple 6 figure earner. My career has been dynamic and prosperous with a number of very challenging executive roles with some of the worlds premier companies and clients across many industries. An interesting demographic from my graduating class is that I am one of several who have performed at or above my current level and income. My undergraduate career spanned 11 years, included 7 different majors, while attending a series of 7 different colleges or universities. After selling my company I decided to change from studying Economics to Engineering. DeVry offered me the most direct and shortest path to completing a BS in Engineering. I transferred from a state university to DeVry. The program was challenging and the professors very knowledgeable and helpful. The direct degree program approach was much less cumbersome to navigate than the auditorium registration/multiple contingency course method that the traditional state and private schools I had attended. Online registration has dealt with much of this challenge though course availability remains a significant issue in traditional public and private universities. In my experience this is not an issue at DeVry. 90% of my graduating class received multiple offers of employment prior to graduation with high quality employers. As DeVry is a regionally accredited university I have never had an employer or client question the validity of my degree. In my experience and for working and very focused students DeVry is a very good option for completing studies towards an undergraduate degree."

"My Initial 4 weeks were rough, but the Dean along with her staff were very supportive when life throws a curve ball at you. Through out the entire 8 weeks, which is fast paced, to succeed you need a daily routine. Follow the guidelines in detail, ask questions if necessary, developing your own routine because only you know you. The professors at DeVry will work with you and always remember that communication goes both ways. The professors teaching Technical writing and Business and Technology exceeded my expectations, then encourage learning by thinking out of the box and stir up the discussion boards in order to get the creative juices going which really helps helps you to adapt, learn from others experience then removing you from you comfort zone. To keep the pace, my Academic Advisor was always available to assist me in dealing with administrative that potential almost derailed from continuing my education at DeVry Long Beach. They are the jacks of all trades and masters of none, they are foot soldiers that will fill in the necessary gaps so that you can focus on school and if they do not have the answer they will get back to you as time permits. I have gone through many schools both onsite or online, DeVry is the place is where I will earn my degree after 20 years of serving my country. In the end my hard work will pay and with the support of the DeVry staff it is possible. In the end it is all up to you and if you want it so bad then go for it and reach for the stars. I switched from Computer Science Information to a higher level into BS in Electrical and Engineering Tech., this degree is math intensive, but who said anything is easy. Einstein was initially the smartest individual during his time, but what ever he did he became famous. Make sure you are committed and have the time to follow through your education. DeVry will be there to support, but you have to take the necessary steps to take the leap and succeed. Its on you.... David B. Current DeVry Student-Long Beach"
