Good PhD prospects and research opportunities.
Tips: If a student is planning to do a PhD, I would definitely recommend my school because there are a lot of resourceful professors and they have won various NSF awards. They can be really helpful and can be a great guide. The courses are well structured and the professors are friendly. I just felt like south Indian graduate student enrollment is really less compared to schools on the West Coast. Overall it's a good place to study. I am not sure about the scholarship for Masters but if you are working on research, you will definitely get a scholarship.
