University of Pittsburgh-Pittsburgh Campus's Top Rankings

University of Pittsburgh-Pittsburgh Campus is ranked on 6 lists of the best colleges by earnings one year out of college.


Salary and Debt by Major at University of Pittsburgh

We calculated a salary score for each of University of Pittsburgh's programs by comparing program-specific median alumni earnings to median alumni earnings for the same program across all schools that provide this data. This way, students can compare the relative salary strength of a specific major at University of Pittsburgh to the same major at other schools. A school's overall score by level is based on the school's by-program performance weighted by student enrollment in each program. Data is sourced from the December 2020 release of the U.S. Department of Education's College Scorecard and reflects median alumni debt upon graduation and median alumni earnings in the year after graduation for students who received federal financial aid. Debt and salary numbers are shown rounded to the nearest $10.

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.

This idea was challenged many times with the difficulty of classes I had to take, along with the number of students I was competing against, just to stand out. However, if you're a student that knows exactly what you want to do career-wise, it makes it a lot... Read More
