MS Management Information Systems - Batch of 2023
PlacementsInfrastructureFacultyCrowd & Campus LifeValue for Money
Univeriversity at Buffalo is satisfactory and also value for money.
Tips: It's a good college and one of the top colleges in any state, but Buffalo as a city is small and there isn't much happening but because it is a public university and fees is less it makes it all worth it. It's a little hard to get a part-time job since it's limited but since the cost of living is less it's okay to not have one.
Likes (Quality of faculty): All the faculty are very knowledgeable and they focus on practical experience rather than bookish knowledge. You gain a lot of hands-on knowledge of various tools and technologies. You also get a lot of support for learning new things and making your own projects.
Dislikes (Permanent Immigration): There are a lot of employees who would not want to sponsor international students making it hard for students to find a job. And with Buffalo being a medical town it doesn't have a lot of IT jobs. There are only a selected few places that would hire international students and sponsor their visas.

MS Computer Science and Engineering - Batch of 2024
PlacementsInfrastructureFacultyCrowd & Campus LifeValue for Money
A sweet start but neverending anxiety and crying until you reach the last semeter.
Tips: If you are taking MS in CSE, it will be hectic. Especially because you have 4 courses every semester. Apart from that, the weather is harsh. Snowfall for 8 months. It is beautiful in summer, spring and fall but the winter is too much. You have to wear all your winter gear and make sure you wont get a frostbite. Try to find a part-time job to meet your expenses which would be helpful. Honestly, the curriculum was so hectic we didn't get the time to fully enjoy the student life in US. Although some of them did find a way. It's a great learning experience though. Try to meet professors and explore projects happening on campus. UB has solid courses and assignments also some professors are exceptional in teaching. You will like the first few snowfalls but not when you have to go for an early class in 3 feet of snow. The summer and spring are worth it. It's a whole package.
Likes (Public transportation): Stampedes (university buses) every 10-15 mins (if you are unlucky it might take 30min once in a while) that go from south campus to North campus. It has designated stops. Convenient and runs till late night. Also has a shuttle service if your house is far from the main circle.
Dislikes (Indian Food): There are a couple of options on campus for Indian food. And a few near South campus where most of the students prefer to stay. For other Indian places, you have to go to downtown which is a bit far but has good options. Definitely try Zaika. For the first two semesters you won't be willing to spend $15-20 for a meal so will be cooking yourself until you get comfortable spending in dollars.

It's good in curriculum. Student to professor ratio is okay.
Tips: Temperatures are low so I would advise buying cold clothes upon arrival. I am very satisfied with the university as it gave me enough opportunities to prove myself. Also, the courses are flexible one can choose from management school as well as other engineering courses.
Likes (Value for money): Lower in fees and part time jobs are readily available. The living cost is low. One of the most reputed colleges in New York State with low affordable fees. The International Student Association is very responsive too. They also have many cultural events so that one can enjoy their festivals.

Indian food in the campus is decent.
Tips: Choose your specialization based on your interests and if you are planning to do PhD or thesis, then know more about the professor, go through their website and probably drop a mail regarding your interest in their work. Try to connect with alumni or current students via LinkedIn who might help you in choosing courses and all.
Likes (Part time work): Part time jobs can be easily availed and most of the students will get into at least one of them. There are several opportunities from dining to tech squad, so anyone who wants to work along with their studies can easily get into those. Also, it's quite manageable.
Dislikes (Indian Food): The Indian food in the campus is decent. But it makes you miss the masala and spiciness that you enjoyed in India. Other than that, there are many Indian cuisine restaurants in Buffalo, and as lots of Indian subcontinental students come here to pursue higher studies, the demand and supply is well balanced. So no worries about that. Also, there are multiple Indian bazaars here wherein you can get almost all the basic Indian stuff.
