Student Testimonials


Student Testamonials Circle headshot Viresha
"I was looking for a university that had a more favorable class size. I enjoy having the opportunity to get to know my lecturers and teaching assistants, and being able to receive valuable guidance and assistance. The atmosphere here is truly amazing. [UCR] really does live up to its title of being one of the most diverse campuses in the United States."

Viresha Perera, from Sri Lanka and the United Arab Emirates, B.A in Psychology
"My graduate study experience at the Bourns College of Engineering was amazing. The faculty are enthusiastic about addressing challenging research problems. They provide incredible mentorship, training, and support. The instructional curriculum, inspiring technical discussions, and effective research environment have also helped me build a strong foundation for my career. I am fortunate to have completed my Ph.D. at BCOE."
