University of Pitt Main Campus versus Branch Campus and Co-Ops versus Internships
My son is attending Pitt Johnstown majoring in Computer Engineering. He wants to transfer to the main campus this Fall (Junior Year). It will cost about 28K more for the 2 years at the Main campus versus finishing at Johnstown. My son feels the additional expenses are well worth it because he will receive a better education and have more opportunities to obtain an internship or a co-op since the main campus is where the Co-Op office is located. The main campus also has more professors and classes so there will be less scheduling conflicts. Do you think he is better off at the main campus? Are Co-ops beneficial? From what I understand he would participate in a paid Co-Op for 3 semesters With a co-op he would have to go an extra semester to graduate. Would he be better off doing an internship in the summer so he doesn't have to go an extra semester?9 replies
