    Pros

    Nice midwest people to work with.

    Cons

    I've been studying Mechanical Eng. at NDSU for almost 7 years. Most of the faculty does not have external funded projects to support their research, except Dr. Wu who is awarded an NSF project in nanomanufacturing. Therefore, research ability of this school is limited.

    I worked at North Dakota State University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nothing I can think of.

    Cons

    If you want to destroy your career then it is the right place for you. Especially if you are an international student then forget about any future prospects let alone a job.
    Don't let anybody fool you, out of 10 only 2 international student gets any phone call. You can check the department's statistics to confirm.
    Everybody has already written about no health insurance and low assistant so there is no need to repeat here. Wish Glassdoor let 0 or negative as a rating
