    Ques. Should I choose USC, UIUC, or Syracuse University for my undergraduate study of architecture?

    ● Top Answer By Tezal Dahiya on 13 Jan 21

    Ans. The University of Southern California (USC) is a private university located in Los Angeles, California. The University of Illinois at Urbana – Champaign (UIUC) is a public university located in the twin cities of Urbana and Champaign. The QS World University Rankings by subject 2020 – Architecture/Build Environment is given below – University of Southern California (USC) - #51 - 100 University of Illinois at Urbana – Champaign (UIUC) - #50 Syracuse University - #101 – 150 The rankings tell you one thing and the experience of the students another. The reputation and the number of graduates from the USC School of Architecture and Syracuse University School of Architecture are far more than the graduates from the Illinois School of Architecture – UIUC. All these programs are quite close in terms of rankings as well. So academically you cannot go wrong with any of these three schools. Yet USC and Syracuse University still hold a little edge. Your choice should also depend upon the area you want to settle down after graduating. USC is located on the west coast, UIUC in the midwest and Syracuse University on the east coast. If you want to work in New York, choose Syracuse University. If you want to work in California or Los Angeles, choose USC. It is not that they are not known nationally, but most of the hiring managers, some of whom may be alumni, are located in companies closer to the university itself, thus a better chance of getting employed in that region. Also some may prefer the quiet regions of upstate New York or Illinois while some may marvel at the architectural designs in and around the city of Los Angeles. This is strictly a personal choice. Also factor in the huge and ever growing alumni network of USC, which makes it a compelling choice. If you combine all these factors, then University of Southern California (USC) emerges as a clear winner among the three for studying architecture.Read more

    This university has a great Statistics program with a lot of world renowned professors in the field. On top of that, I had heard from multiple sources about campus life here at UIUC and that was an important factor.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course curriculum for Statistics is great here. They are all well organized and have been planned in a way that allows students to have a strong foundation in the field and gives them time to build on the concepts in order to be well prepared for the harder courses.

    UIUC needs no introduction when it comes to the excellent research. ECE department of UIUC has top-class research faculties and facilities - it is one of the top 5 graduate program in the world.

    Course Curriculum :

    Syllabus is excellent and lots of options for course work. Courses at ECE are more math oriented though. If you want to learn software sides of ML, AI etc., CS department should be better choice (you can also take CS courses).

    I chose University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign because it has a very good computer science program and a lot of resources. The professors are very impressive and a lot of research is done at the school.

    Course Curriculum :

    I enjoyed the course curriculum and academics. However, it was often difficult to get help and professors are very slow at grading. I enjoyed being able to use a message board system though to ask my TAs questions about the class.

    It was a great engineering school and a change in environment

    Course Curriculum :

    Since University of Illinois is a really big school, specialized instruction is rare and often courses are very fast paced. It is possible to do well in classes and career, however the student does have to make the extra effort of reaching out to professors and being diligent with job searching.

    At the time when I was a psychology major, the university of Illinois had an amazing post graduate program for masters in psychology that would benefit my long term career goals as well as being close to home and a reputable big ten university in the Midwest of the United States

    Course Curriculum :

    My course syllabus was typically accurate and did not deviate from our in class learning, most of my courses were in economics and some statistics and did not provide any industry or research exposure
