Master of Business Administration - Batch of 2025

Great university - Best work options after graduation
Tips: Great culture, smooth transition for international students since there are many others and the school is very accommodating. Very satisfied with the university, the course is great with excellent ROI. I was given scholarships during admission which we could appeal and negotiate if we wanted to, other scholarships were also available through affinity groups

M.S. in Mechanical Engineering - Applied Advanced Study - Batch of 2023
PlacementsInfrastructureFacultyCrowd & Campus LifeValue for Money
You will be surrounded by smart people and will have a good learning curve.
Tips: A huge transition in terms of workload and lifestyle. Overall the students are friendly here. I was not fortunate enough to receive any scholarship and was able to offset my only expenses by being a research assistant and teaching assistant. The quality of education is awesome. Semester can be tough and stressful but end of the day you will have a good learning curve.
Likes (Public transportation): You can cover most of the city using the Pittsburgh Bus transport service and it is covered in the annual transportation fee which you pay to the college. You can access the transportation with your student ID card and can travel multiple rides throughout the year.
Dislikes (Post study jobs): There are companies that are ready to sponsor visas post your graduation, but due to the current economic situation (2023) there are not many offers. Robotics, control engineer and ML engineer are some of the roles that are offered to students post graduation.

Graduate student life at CMU and Pittsburgh city is amazing
Tips: The city is beautiful and peaceful but different from India in terms of people, culture and lifestyle. If you receive scholarships then try negotiating with the school for a better offer if possible. Give time for the city to open up to you and be open to new possibilities.

M.S. in Software Engineering - Batch of 2023
PlacementsInfrastructureFacultyCrowd & Campus LifeValue for Money
Best private university in USA
Tips: Before joining, students should know that CMU is expensive private university so they need to be very careful while paying any expenses. University academic is very rigorous so they need to prepare themselves for much hard work. After coming in CMU I experienced a little cultural shift but was easy to cope with. I didn't avail of any scholarship. University is fully worth it for Masters in software engineering, course is also as per the industry requirement and the country is the best for Tech related career.
Likes (Quality of faculty): Faculty members of CMU are approachable, friendly and supportive in nature. They encourage students to research work, doing different real world projects. Faculty members are well-experienced, top researchers and industry professionals. Teaching methods are unique and beyond traditional methods i.e. methods include project-based learning, group discussions, case studies, lectures from guest industry professionals. Much diversity can be found in the university among faculty members in terms of nationality, culture, engineering practices and so on.
Dislikes (Internships): Much guidance is available in terms of finding internship by professors, Alumni. There is a career center of CMU which supports and provides resources for finding and applying for internships. It also conducts workshops for students related to interview preparation, and resume writing. There are many available internships in the field of software engineering from big MNCs like Google, Amazon and so on.

Amazing experience at CMU!
Tips: There was a huge cultural shift. But people here made me feel more inclusive. I got a scholarship of 50k dollars. University supported me for the scholarship. This decision was worth every penny. Every day here is a new learning day. After 7 years of experience, I felt my learning curve was getting better, but here I started pushing myself out of my comfort zone which was very important.
Likes (Post study jobs): There are so many fun filled activities for students here. Your personal life and college life will be well balanced. Fitness events and student counselling sessions are organised weekly. To make them feel comfortable on campus. There are professional and non-professional clubs on campus varying from Consulting to Swim Club.
Dislikes (Public transportation): It has amazing faculty, well qualified from across the world. Every faculty has a different style of teaching. The classes are very interactive. If you don't even do the post study and only concentrate on classes, half of your work is already done.
