NUS vs USC

I recently got an admit from National University Of Singapore(NUS) for Masters of Computing(coursework program).

I had made up my mind on USC(University of Southern California) for MS in Computer Science.

Please share your views. NUS is ranked way above USC in QS world rankings.
Please let me know your thoughts on this - USC vs NUS.

I cannot comment about USC nor about CS programs, as it is not my field. For NUS, I can say it is a very good university, especially if you want to go for research afterwards. For industry, it is good too, but I cannot comment how the job scene is in Singapore for CS, so even if you graduate with good grades and in case the market is down, you will not get a job. For research, it is good because of facilities and profs, and if you apply for PhD later, you will have a good credibility as you would be NUS graduate (of course it will also depend how you perform there).

In general in Singapore, job search is becoming an issue due to changes in govt policies for foreign workers.

Thank you for your response.Smile If possible can you please tag someone who has some idea about computer science from NUS or may be job scene in Singapore for CS?

I'd say go with USC. USC is a pretty good univ in the US. Jobs are very good. Job market is pretty hot at the moment. Salaries in SF Bay Area are at an all time high. The opportunities in US as a whole are far superior compared to Singapore.
