University of Phoenix Student Reviews
Program: Education
Posted on January 13, 2010 by Dr. Ruby

Bill Gates and Steve Jobs both quit the traditional form of higher education. The "rating" of a school is often over-rated. Success is about your insight in your own personality and passion in learning as well as what you are willing to put into life. UOP is as good or better than any other universities for providing students guidance. The rest is up to you. UOP is not for students who want to play the blame game. I found UOP an excellent non-traditional institution providing me confidence in life and the doctoral degree I need. Special thanks to UOP founder Dr. John Sperling for his 40 years of hard work bringing UOP to the world benefiting people everywhere.

Comments about Dr. Ruby's review

Not really a review per se, since I never attended or knew anyone who attended UofPHX. It appears that many who attended did so because it met certain personal requirements, and it was the best or only available option for them. More power to you, and kudos for attempting to further your development. However... If anyone enrolling at UofPHX is considering a career in Aerospace Engineering, you are wasting your time and money. I'm a UCLA Mechanical Engineering graduate with over 3 decades experience in spacecraft and launch vehicle structures with NASA and the major aerospace contractors across the country. I've worked with literally 1000's of multi-disciplined engineers and scientists over the years, and the one thing I can say is that none of them attended the UofPHX. Our industry does NOT recognize UofPHX, and never will. Most of the employment applications are automated, with pull-down screens to enter where you obtained your degree(s) and major field of study. The universities listed not only include those in the US, but also the more prominent foreign ones as well. The minimum necessary to work in this field is a BS Engineering from one of these recognized schools, so if you graduated from UofPHX, you do not qualify. It won't make a difference if your instructors were CalTech or MIT PhD's, If YOU didn't go there

  Very true Henry, UOP does not even offer the courses you mentioned. UOP is not intended as a school preparing people to work at NASA, instead, UOP is a school intending to give non-traditional students with families and full time jobs a chance to obtain a quality education in such fields as teaching, medicine,counseling, business management and law enforcement. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science from the University of Phoenix and guess who excepted my degree? The United States military! I think that if my degree from UOP is accepted by our federal government, people graduating from this school will find jobs with no problem! Thank you Henry, but I would think someone of your education level would know better than to post something on a subject you have failed to research.

Really, what is your idea of success? What does someone like you want to succeed at? Why?

Why do you want the things you want?

Success is?

I am not affiliated with the UofP, except that I am an applicant for the Ed.D. program. Henry, you are so full of crap they could stuff you for Thanksgiving. UofP doesn't even offer the programs that would lead one to NASA or any engineering field. It is a school for non-traditional people. Go get your slide rule and play with it while we study.
