Ucsb V Uci

<p>I was curious as to which Electrical Engineering's program is better. I got into both for EE, and am interested in that aspect of it. I know enough about the other aspects of the schools, such as the social aspects and location, so I am purely interested in the program itself.</p>

<p>UCSB's pretty much better at Engineering.</p>

<p>I'm going to say this is not a very important aspect of your decision unless you already know one of the schools has a specialty in an area of EE you are interested in and the other doesn't. At 2 UC campuses such as this pair things are as close to twins as you can get for most classes; even the course numbers are the same! The outcome of your education between these 2 schools isn't going to depend on which is "better" (and we can argue for days on what "better" means); its going to depend on you doing the work to master the material.</p>

<p>The bigger difference in your life is going to be the atmosphere -- type of kids that enroll, the living situation, etc. The 2 choices are quite different. Pick the one that appeals to you better. And I say that as a big UCSB fan.</p>

<p>UCSB EE = really good..it's like rank 20 in the usnews2008 rankigns...and ucsb has a way better social atmosphere</p>

<p>UCI EE is like rank 4X (48 last year) in the USnews rankings..social life not so good...</p>

<p>UCSB ..you will kill two birds with one stone (good EE program + social life)</p>

<p>UCI you will miss two birds with one stone =o</p>
