Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

Academics Rating

There a few excellent teachers, but many professors do not care about their job. This is the same it seems from the majority of school that I have read and heard about. The class sizes are usually very large depending on the subject. I am in the school of Architecture and there are various sizes to classes. The range is from around 20 to hundreds of students. The workload is ridiculous, but it is expected from attending college. The college of architecture is an unforgiving school one in the professional program. The hard work. no sleep and learning things on your own is worth it once you push yourself through.

Student at This School - Grad Year 2012

Academics Rating

Most classes on Tech campus are of moderate size, 30-50 people. These class sizes allow a more one-on-one relationship with professors, all of which are very dedicated to helping students succeed. The work load is moderate for an undergraduate student but with time management skills is very manageable.
