SMU's Engineering Reputation
Hi I'm an incoming engineering undergraduate to SMU and I wanted to know more about the opportunities given to SMU engineering students once they graduate. Lately, I've been a bit concerned that because SMU is not as highly ranked in engineering as UT, TAMU, or Rice that I would be at huge disadvantage when applying to graduate schools or jobs. Is this a correct assumption?
I also wanted to know more about the strength of the biomedical specialization within the electrical and mechanical engineering programs at SMU. I was wondering if SMU offered any research in the biomedical field to its undergraduate students. In general, I also want to know about the extent of the research that goes on in SMU's engineering department.
I would love to hear from anyone who has graduated from SMU engineering or knows anyone that has. I just want to know what your experience was like. I chose SMU because I believed it was the best choice for me and unfortunately I will not know if it was until I actually start in the Fall. I just hope that I won't be at a major disadvantage compared to students from other universities as long as I keep my grades up high and be active at SMU.
