Clemson University or SUNY-Stony Brook for MS in Electrical Engineering?

<p>I am a graduate international student from India. I have got offer in both Clemson University and SUNY-Stony Brook for Master of Science (MS) in Electrical Engineering with specialization in Communication and Signal Processing. I have not been offered financial assistance by both. Not yet able to decide which one to go for.</p>

<p>I would like to know what are the relative strengths/weaknesses of these 2 universities, particularly w.r.t.
a) Chances of getting funding at a later stage
b) Opportunities of doing CPT/OPT and after-MS job opportunities
c) Academic environment, especially in Electrical Engineering area
d) Any other area of importance</p>

<p>Also, does proximity of SUNY-Stony Brook to New York City has the advantage over Clemson University in getting internships and jobs?</p>

<p>Finally, any suggestion as to what should be my final destination – Clemson or SUNYSB?</p>

<p>I sent you a message comparing Clemson and SUNY-Stony Brook. As for internships, Stony Brook has the advantage of being close to NYC so it would be easy to find internships and jobs. However, Clemson was ranked #3 last year in career/job placement by the Princeton Review so it's easy at Clemson too.</p>

<p>Clemson should be your final destination in my opinion.</p>
