Ed Christian rated 4 out of 5 stars

I think the faculty are excellent and knowledgeable, and the students are collaborative and interested in learning from one another, with many networking opportunities. While my studies are focused on Cybersecurity, I think the CS&E program is well rounded enough that the degree requirements give me a good foundation. Also, plentiful internship opportunities.
