"I also had the flexibility to adapt my schedule to study and work at different locations, which I wouldn’t have been able to do otherwise."
"I like the quality of teaching along with the breadth of the topics covered in each course."
"I was accepted to multiple schools, but overall the positive feedback I received from alumni, the affordable cost, and ultimately the variety of courses offered made Purdue the best choice."
"I like being able to choose exactly what I want to learn and with which professors."
"The professors truly care about the learning of their students, and have gone above and beyond to ensure everyone is getting the most enriching and educational experience they can."
"Being able to have a life outside school is so important, whether it’s for work or for fun. I’m really glad I can work towards this degree consistently but also still have time for my job and my friends. It’s important for stress release and just feeling balanced. A lot of graduate students can’t say that."
"As someone with a full-time job, my work and personal schedules can change week-to-week so I greatly appreciate having the ability to do coursework on my own time."

"Having a master’s degree with a specialization in computer engineering is helping me directly in my work, as I work on building next-generation computer architectures focused towards machine learning and artificial intelligence."
"I strongly believe this MS program will help me to clarify and deepen my research interests in the Microelectronics and Nanotechnology area."
"An online program might sound like a solitary endeavor, but the faculty at Purdue are clearly committed to supporting online students and providing numerous avenues for interaction."
"Purdue has a fantastic reputation and is internationally known for its engineering program; however, the cost was also lower than most online graduate programs!"
