Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico Reviews
I finished my Bachelors in science in Mechanical Engineering here and as any other university you will find great professors as you will find others that are not so great but my overall experience was a good one. Something to keep in mind about the students here in comparison to other competing colleges in the engineering department, Is that the student environment here is unique as instead of having the everyone for themselves mentality, teamwork is key.
No es la mejor universidad pero es perfecta para aquellos que buscan un ambiente mas privado. Los programas de deportes no son muy buenos y los beneficios de pertenecer a estos tampoco. La universidad debería enfocarse en crear estrategias para retener a los estudiantes, ya se han destacado como la mejor universodad privada de ingeniería pero les falta dar a conocer todos los demas programas que trabajan. En cuanto a las instalaciones estas están en buenas condiciones y se siente un buen ambiente en la universidad. Todos los profesores con los que he tenido la oportunidad de tomar clases han sido bastantes profesionales y se destacan educando. Si deseas pertenecer a una universidad tranquila, pequeña y donde tengas mejores oportunidades de destacar, la Universidad Politecnica de Puerto Rico es excelente opción.
