"Carnegie Mellon University is a great place to earn a PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineer. They are consistently ranked in the top 10 among universities that offer PhDs, and the new campus president is leading the university in a good direction. It is very competitive to get into a PhD program here, and it is a very stressful environment especially when you are preparing to take your qualifying exams."

Product Manager
in Mountain View, CA

"My learning experience at CMU has been highly fruitful and has provided me the right direction to heed towards product management. During my spring semester, I was involved in creating a web application themed on Emergency Social Networks. This involved identifying customer requirements, product definition, ideating use cases, product feature designing using wireframes, solutionizing the front-end and back-end of the application as well as implementing them. I am currently involved in 2 summer projects, working alongside Emirates, our sponsor, to solutionize their OnBoard and Retail store sales. Using data analytics on large data sets using NumPy, Seaborn and Python, we are able to draw numerous data insights on product sales. I’m also looking into cart optimization based on these trends as a product solution to the problem statement provided to us."

"I have worked on building a system to bridge cultural gap between American and international students. It was nice experience and gained a lot of insights. Supervisor which I had was great and he has assisted me to come up with ideas that can solve complex problems. Overall I found this place great and I am happy with my experience. I will recommend my friends for any future positions. Only drawback is very less salary."
