5 College Senior

Academics: The school doesn't have tenure, so the professors have to work to improve their teaching. Most professors are good teachers and there is an extremely high academic standard.

4 College Senior

Academics: The workload is heavy, especially in the junior/senior years. The facilities are being upgraded, so that is a plus, though they removed our microelectronic fabrication lab, which is a minus. Internship and job opportunities are fairly plentiful for FIT students and graduates. The EE program has focuses on digital signal processing, wireless communication, data mining, communication systems, optical systems and sensors, and electronic fabrication and design.

5 College Junior
