PhD CS Program, Graduated 2007
I graduated with my bachelors in Computer Engineering from the University of Patras, Greece. Having visited a friend in Stony Brook a few years back, I had a very positive impression of the place and the school, so I decided to apply there, among a few other schools. Being the highest ranked institution to offer me a full scholarship and with a strong algorithmic team in the Computer Science department, it was clearly the best choice.
The Computer Science department at Stony Brook is large, offers many options and quite a few advanced classes, providing a great amount of flexibility to its students. The professors are very approachable, there are many opportunities to interact with them in formal and informal settings, such as the famous donut hour! Read More-Dimitris
