How do you think of Villanova Univ?
Hi, everyone. I am applying to pursue a Ph.D in mechanical engineering.
I have known that some professors at Villanova University are recruiting new Ph. D candidates next year. But I could not find the ranking of this university at US News. How do you think of this university? Is it strong in mechanical engineering?
I am interested in work of the professors, but I am concerned about whether I could find a good job after I graduate from this university.
Can anyone give me some suggestions?

Depends on YOU, what you do with your degree. That school is my alma mater, and I know tons of engineering grads from that school. They all seem to have had steady employment since. Several have gone to work for SUNOCO, and make close to 6 figures or more with just their bachelor's degrees in ME.
You don't find a rankings because 'Nova hasn't had PhD programs in a long time since they mostly focused on undergraduate education (not a research institution) and master's degrees. It sounds like they've opened up to PhD programs now, so it is probably a new program, hence not being ranked.
