Purdue Masters - Worth the money and your time
Tips: It’s going to be very competitive. Students should be prepared for that. Not much cultural shift as there are a lot of Indians here. The syllabus is advanced, we can learn a lot here. A lot of companies hire exclusively from Purdue, but currently, the job market is down for everybody.

Tips: If you are here, make sure you enjoy as much as you can. You will need funding for this course so start applying for loans etc as soon as possible, because by the time you come to campus, it might be too late. You can also find some on campus jobs as part-time work so do not restrict yourself, there is nothing wrong in doing part-time job.

Really good public university, you get to learn a lot!
Tips: Purdue provides fee waiver for research assistant and teaching assistant position in MSCS. This is a really good opportunity for graduate and Ph.D. students. All the seems that we work as a TA/RA fee would be waived. I feel being a TA by teaching and assisting undergrad students during labs and office hours was a great experience.

A great place to study and propel your career
Tips: Though best known for its engineering programs, Purdue University offers a wide range of other courses to choose from which are equally good. The faculty here is world class. People in Indiana are nice and overall it's a homely vibe. Winters do get really cold though.
Likes (Public transportation): Fairly well connected by the city's public bus transportation system. Their app is also nice which gives real-time update on the location and schedule of the buses. Purdue students can ride free by showing their university ID card. Uber and Lyft are also available.
Dislikes (Student Life): Purdue University is in West Lafayette which is a small student town in Northern Indiana. Being a small town, the options for students to hang out becomes limited to only a few good places. Being said that though the places which are here are not at all bad just that more options would have been nicer.

Purdue university offers great faculty for engineering.
Tips: The college and the town West Lafayette is quite student-friendly. You will have the time of your life here. Transportation is free completely for students and you keep getting freebies in college. The quality of education is unmatched. Professors are quite approachable. Surely value for money.
Likes (Quality of faculty): Student life is amazing here because of the tight-knit cohort. It is a small cohort, that is why everybody is connected and shares a good bond. There are several activities to do and sports to play. There are several events in college going on all the time.
Dislikes (Post study jobs): Faculty are very knowledgeable. They teach very well and quality education is received. They have a good grip on courses and are experts in their field. There are many Indian professors in Business school, Krannert school of management. They are approachable.
