Pros

Cutting edge technology and a vibrant city full of ambitious young people. Very challenging research and educational experience to stimulate your inner curiosity. Certainly a place to be for a solid career foundation.

Cons

Very competitive environment and sometimes it is hard to cope with the pace of studying and working. The weather obviously is a major blow if you hate snow.

    The IP policy and support of student entrepreneurship is not as clearcut as at MIT.
