No es la mejor universidad pero es perfecta para aquellos que buscan un ambiente mas privado. Los programas de deportes no son muy buenos y los beneficios de pertenecer a estos tampoco. La universidad debería enfocarse en crear estrategias para retener a los estudiantes, ya se han destacado como la mejor universodad privada de ingeniería pero les falta dar a conocer todos los demas programas que trabajan. En cuanto a las instalaciones estas están en buenas condiciones y se siente un buen ambiente en la universidad. Todos los profesores con los que he tenido la oportunidad de tomar clases han sido bastantes profesionales y se destacan educando. Si deseas pertenecer a una universidad tranquila, pequeña y donde tengas mejores oportunidades de destacar, la Universidad Politecnica de Puerto Rico es excelente opción.

Varsity sports at Polytechnic University are really poor, they don't give to much attention to the athletes, I went to Elgin Community College in Illnois and the different is huge, I'm a baseball player,the first time in University the first thing that I asked, it was about the baseball team, they told "oh yeah we are making one" so I refused one opportunity that I had in other University, because they offer good classes, at the end the didn't do anything. About other sport, they don't have a good support.

Computers provided by school (in computer labs) are well equipped with the adequate engineering software, which is good because you are not required to buy a notebook or engineering software to complete class assignments. Printing is easy, not free, but not expensive either. Network availability and speed was reasonable, not the best or fastest, but good.
