Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology Reviews

Great school, but it was very difficult; so many people dropped out after the first few months. But, if you’re having difficulties or get stuck in any of your subjects there are people there to help you. I learned a lot! The only con I had was that there are not many women in the program, but sadly that’s common in the engineering field. I was able to get a great job, great pay and now I’m headed to grad school funded by my job’s higher education enrichment program.

My advice is to go for it and DO NOT give up, it’s worth it! Use the resources at the school, they want you to succeed.

I'm a current student studying in the new Bachelors Electrical Engineering program. I decided to enroll for the cheap price and excellent major since it's also ABET accredited. I didn't expect a fancy college when I enrolled. I just wanted a good degree at a good price, and BFIT supplies that. The teacher's are just as knowledgeable as you'd expect from any college. For the price, I recommend this college.
Benjamin Franklin Institute is a small school of Engineering and technical skills. The Academic staff is very helpful and encouraging. The school invests in minorities who comes from poor backgrounds. "No one gets left behind" is their motto. The school provides all the tools and support necessary for the students to feel accepted and apart of a community. The school was built on a module of fairness and equality by Benjamin Franklin. The school is not very big, but it is organized and its staff are well trained and informed. The professors hold accomplishments of PhD and MD's in their field of expertise. In the technical areas, most teachers have 10+ years of experience in their field of expertise. The school equipment is kept up to date and in good condition. The bathrooms are clean and trash is disposed of accordingly. It is a peaceful and subtle area to learn.
