Tushar received 5 admits for MS in computer science programs in various schools in the U.S. Tushar asks about U.S. university selection. He sent this email:
The following are my admits for master’s studies:
1) MS in networking and systems administration from Rochester Institute of Technology.
2) MS in CS Illinois Institute of Technology
3) MS in CS University of Texas Dallas
4) MS in CS New Jersey Institute of Technology
5) MS in CS Clemson
I am interested in studying networking but I have no idea about networking and systems administration at the Department of Rochester with respect to co-ops, internships and jobs.
No issues taking CS either.
What should my choice be with respect to university selection considering co-ops, internships and jobs?
Recently, almost all the students applying for MS in CS are talking about major in Computer Networks, I’m not sure what is the reason behind this.
There are so many other majors to choose from (software engineering, database, bio-informatics, computer architecture, software testing, compiler design, AI, robotics, neural networks, etc.)
But the good part about Tushar’s comment is that he’s trying to find the information about internship and job opportunities. Not many students look that these details before finalizing the university selection.
You can find a detailed 12 Step University Selection Guide here. It includes all the questions and scenarios one has to know some important information before deciding on a university.
It’s a time consuming process, but it will help you in the long run.
MS in Computer Science
My opinions about the programs offered at the following schools:
- MS in networking and systems administration at Rochester Institute of Technology – Yes
- Ms in CS at Illinois Institute of Technology – Maybe, very few students get aid
- MS in CS – University of Texas, Dallas – Yes, cheap, affordable
- MS in CS New Jersey Institute of Technology – No
- Ms in CS – Clemson – Yes
All the above universities will have lots of Indian Students so finding part time jobs or aid will be tough.
