BU vs IIT- Chicago [MS in CS]
0
0
Hello, everyone!

So I have got acceptance from two universities for Masters in Computer Science;
  • Boston University
  • Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago

I can't zero down one of the unis as the pro/cons list just seem to balance out eachother.


Illinois Institute of Technology

1.The University holds a ranking of 101 as per US News Ranking
2. The department offers many research areas.
3. The tuition fee and living expenses are less than that of BU.

Boston University:


1.The University holds a ranking of 48 as per US News Ranking
2. The Research areas offered are
Computer Networks/ Data Analytics/ Security
3. Because BU is located in Boston, I will get more exposure and opportunities as many other world-renowned unis are located in the area.

In the CS Field, Both the cities provide a good number of Job with it. But raking wise BU is better than IIT.

I don't plan on doing PhD after completion of my Masters.

Any help/inputs are appreciated!

Both are equally good; but I believe BU has slight advantage in the long term. The ecosystem for CS is much >> Chicago.

cheers,
