This is a great school to learn Electrical Engineering. Most of the professors are excellent and there are a lot of research opportunities. You will have to work hard, but, as they say, nothing worth having comes easy.

You will get out of this degree what you put into it. You can do the bare minimum, or you can use the abundant opportunities that they offer to take your education to the next level. For example, a professor worked with me out of class to learn PCB design. You can get a little of this from classes,... Read More

I transferred into Pitt from community college after my freshman year. They did everything they could to help me with that transition. The adviser and administrator that helps you pick class are excellent. During my time there they hired new advisors and revamped the whole curriculum. This caused the quality of the department to increase exponentially.

Also, in the ECE department they have the Student Electronics Resource Center (SERC). The two men that run this are extremely helpful and knowledgeable. You can learn many things there. Some of these things are soldering, welding, 3-D printing, and PCB milling. It is a great resource and one of the best parts of the ECE department.

I cant recommend the engineering school enough; I am very happy with my time there. You will learn everything you need to become a great Electrical Engineer.

However, if you're a student that knows exactly what you want to do career-wise, it makes it a lot... Read More
