Student Ratings

Alumnus - Grad Year 2005

Academics Rating

UD is a private university with a very respected degree. I was in the engineering dept, which is one of its core competencies, but it is also well respected in other areas as well. Education and business come to mind. As far as workload is concerned, it is definitely challenging. However, if you prioritize and plan out your commitments, it is achievable. For the most part, class sizes are less than 40 students.

Alumnus - Grad Year 1976

Academics Rating

Excellent professors in all of my classes. Many of them also worked locally so there was excellent networking and opportunities for students off-campus in jobs, internships or volunteer work. Many of my professors were my mentors.
