"Its good for Networking. Master's degree doesnt offer any other specializations, which is a bummer"

"NC State is a great school for engineering. It has one of the most varied subjects one can look for like Textile and Nuclear. It's based in Raleigh, so RTP is close by with lot of opportunities for jobs after graduation. The professors are great and the area is relatively cheap compared to other areas around the country."

"NC State Computer Science program is pretty great. The graduates are also well sought after by major companies and the university is also close to the Research Triangle Park which is expanding with new companies. NC State's tuition is reasonable compared to some other universities. The professors are also great."

"* Pros: A number of interesting fields being explored, such as natural language processing/storytelling, and some stand-out classes in special interests. There's almost always a special topics course (of 3-5) each semester that's appealing for the schedule. Centennial campus is a nice open place with a number of new facilities and quite a few on-campus 'partner' companies. Professors are above-average in competence, with one or two standing out as the most enjoyable teachers I've had in college. The program is reasonably flexible, allowing you plenty of choice in which classes to fit requirements to. A lot of graduate students live off-campus, and the pretty impressive set of local buses (university, city-wide and the triangle-wide buses) are free to current students. * Cons: Somewhat less career support for the students in the department from the university's career center. There's some collaborative group projects, but teamwork is less practiced then would be ideal in today's industry. Grades in some classes are tardy in return, making progress sometimes difficult to predict. Teaching Assistantship stipend is pretty close to the wire on covering costs during the fall and spring semesters. Not as many research positions as might be desired by some, meaning funding tends to be either the assistantships, self or loans. The first couple of months might be difficult in dealing with accents (quite a number of international students in the program and several professors)."
