great place to be a grad student

Graduate Student (Current Employee)
Santa Cruz, CA

Prosengineering department helps fund most students through grants, research positions, and teaching assistant positions. I haven't had to pay any tuition as a masters student. and get free health insureance through the university. Great professors and opportunity to work on progressive research projects. good connections with companies in silicon valley (just over the hill).

ConsSome required classes dont relate to my research. putting in a lot of hours with classes, research, and teahing.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
