Academics Rating

The school is quite challenging and offers many different degree programs. There are both small classes approximately 20-30 students and classes with up to 200+ students. The work load for an engineering student is quite daunting and the students are expected to take anywhere from 15 to 18 credits per semester. The Liberal Arts programs typically require 12 credits for full time status. The schools professors can be difficult to speak with and I had some issues with a few of them.
