School of Computing and Information - University of Pittsburgh Graduate Reviews

2 reviews
The coursework was helpful in some regard. Particularly, I found my algorithms class and the homework assignments from my artificial intelligence class to be helpful. My algorithms professor taught with the Socratic method, and it was incredibly engaging. However, to reiterate the other part of my review, the classroom experience was unbearable some days. Professors frequently had assistants who could barely speak or understand English teach while they were out at conferences and such, and teaching our classes was treated as a cursory responsibility. In addition, the curriculum for my software engineering class was super out-of-date. Aside from the algorithms class and the Python I picked up from doing the homework for the Artificial Intelligence class, I learned virtually nothing that would help me actually get a job. I am employed as a software engineer now, and can confirm that the only info I use from my classes is algorithms, and only very occasionally.

Enrolled as Master's student in 2016. Dropped out after successfully completing 9 credits.
Pros:
- Professors were knowledgeable.
- Staff were generally friendly.
- Panera is nearby, so you can get bagels easily.
Cons:
- Professors had assistants teach frequently, and the assistants could only speak badly broken English, and barely understand clear English spoken by students, making it difficult to learn.
- Doctoral students got a ton of benefits, such as paid assistant positions, while Master's students got absolutely nothing. This became super frustrating as I sat in my classes trying to understand broken English while struggling to find part-time employment.
- School offers a low-budget Zillow-like listing of local rentals, with no discount for students. You're on your own to find housing.
- Coming from an undergrad experience with a deep sense of community and social support structure, the lack of either of these things in the graduate program was incredible demoralizing.
