    Yale is a world renowned academic institution. Graduating from here provides an opportunity to work in good companies.

    If the Engineering Department could be a little bit bigger it would be better.

    I have been working at Yale University full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    My experience is as PhD student:
    Working with some of the most brilliant & innovative professors in the world
    Lots of resources for advanced research in most fields
    Great stipend and benefits guaranteed for 5 years.
    Great academic network and alumni network

    Cons

    As with other grad schools: it's very important to find an advisor you enjoy working with or enduring a long PhD program is difficult. For smaller departments, its important to find someone who is a suitable match before you apply.
