REVIEWS
1.UNCC has a beautiful campus with newly constructed light rail straight from campus to Charlotte business hub. It expanding exponentially with new construction and research grants coming up constantly. Comparatively new school for which the name is not heard much but seeing the growth rate it can be said UNCC will be making a big mark within few years, it's a great time to get in and be a proud niner. 2.I loved attending UNC Charlotte. A lot of companies respect the fact that I received a computer science degree from here. The credit goes to the prestigious faculty the college of computing attracts. A lot of opportunities to pursue your masters or your PHD under great professors. Along with computer science, the university also has ranked engineering programs, motorsports programs and nursing programs.This is the probably the most underrated university in the nation. Because of its location, a lot of students find it easy to land jobs in large corporations like Bank of america, Wells Fargo etc.The 1000 acre wooded campus is absolutely beautiful. With athletics starting to improve again, the enrollment has grown to 30,000. I am proud to have graduated from here.
