There is a lot to achieve if one is willing to work hard.

PhD Student In Mechanical Engineering (Current Employee)
Evanston, IL

ProsThere is a diverse group of faculty with a broad range of research interests. Each professor has their own advising unique style, hence it is difficult to relate my personal experiences to others. If one is not satisfied with their adviser, they can always switch, and there are so many great people here to find to work with.

ConsThe graduate pay is not as great. Career services here are always very busy so one has to primarily rely on themselves to get a job. Also, one has to be willing to self motivate themselves to work long hours if they hope to graduate within four years.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
