Campus

Location

University of Colorado, Boulder is literally in the centre of USA. Although the university is located in what can be called like a village kind area, it is just one hour from Denver. This really adds to the value of the university since Denver is arguably the Telecom capital of the world. The surroundings of the university are absolutely picturesque. There are hills right behind the university and the sky looks resplendent when it rains.

Campus

The Colorado campus is massive. It’s spread over 786 acres and houses over 20,000 students. The infrastructure is very impressive, especially the engineering centre which is home to the nation’s largest geo technical centrifuge. The library is fantastic and you can get an idea of the number of books by the simple fact that the library had to be shifted to a new building because the weight of the books was causing physical damage to the floor. There are also world class facilities for sports and recreation which are available seven days a week.

Residing Options

University of Colorado at Boulder has on-campus residing options, though most of the grad students prefer to stay off campus as it affords them both luxury and privacy. The famous dorms within the campus are Farrand Hall and Sewall Hall. The popular off campus apartment locations are Moorehead and Pearl Street, the latter being extremely famous as it offers all sorts of amenities. Of course, this also means that the landlords charge a rather prohibitive amount as rent. To compensate for this, Moorehead offers apartments at a much more affordable cost.

Faculty

The faculty at Boulder is highly renowned, especially the telecom faculty. The faculty includes a number of Nobel laureates and most of the professors are PhDs'. Students say that the professors are extremely approachable and friendly in spite of being heavily involved in high levels of research activities.

Jobs and placements

It shouldn’t normally be a problem getting a good, well-paying job, especially if you happen to be doing the telecommunications course, in which case you can be sure of being picked up by one of the top players at a fantastic salary.
