Is Hopkins a good place to study comp science?

<p>Hey guys, i'm looking for a good school to study comp science/engine. My close friend is a CS major at Hopkins, and he told me Hopkins was pretty good. However, i've heard that Hopkins is only good for pre-med and bio-related majors. Hopkins' CS department is rather small and doesn't do well in ranking (26th nationally, 70++ globally i think). Any opinion about that?</p>

<p>I have a friend who does computer science. While it is not necessarily well-known, it is small so you can get to know faculty and do research pretty easily.</p>

<p>And actually, I think Hopkins has more top-ranked humanities majors than science majors so your claim about it being good for just biology is false.</p>

<p>talking about research, does CS get as much research funding as other majors? my friend tells me that i'll get much more attention if i do smt involving biology.</p>

<p>I don't know how much funding they get, but they definitely don't get as much as biology or BME. Some departments get a lot more funding than others and unfortunately, my two majors are in the "not much" category. If you visit the school, go to the department and learn more.</p>

<p>There are a lot of resources for CS students at Hopkins. It's a smaller department (good thing!) as the students get a lot of one-on-one instruction and guidance with their research projects. It's easier to get funding in the CS department than say something else because there are fewer students in the department.</p>

<p>I know several students who have gone to work for Google from JHU. It's a very high quality program.</p>
