    Pros

    Nice research atmosphere for graduate students. I benefit a lot from my supervisor and colleagues. Highly recommend engineering students to pursue a master or PhD degree here.

    Cons

    Parking fee is a little bit high for undergrads and grads. More food courts are suggested because the current food court is too crowded during lunch time.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more opportunities for students to contact industrial people. This is can help broaden their horizon and have a better understanding of theoretical knowledge.
