Michigan Technological University Reviews
Review Michigan Technological University
Great school! You live in beautiful landscapes, that offer adventure and serenity. The college faculty and students go out of their way to help support you for success; while keeping the courses challenging so you can keep expanding academically. There are also all kinds of groups to join and things to do on campus for networking, fun, greek life, outdoor ventures, honor societies, and anything you can imagine. (Food plans are great, too!)
I spent more than 7 years here as an undergraduate and then a graduate student, and badly miss MTU, the area, the people, and the love and attention given to education and research. If you are looking to major in psychology or accounting you are best going elsewhere, but there is nowhere better to become an engineer. You will learn from the best; you will be worked hard; you meet, struggle alongside, and drink beer with great people; and you will become the better technical professional for it. 100% job placement for classmates in my undergraduate degree program speaks for itself, and I signed a letter of employment about 4 months before finishing my PhD. Go Huskies!
Michigan Tech has been a great experience so far. At first, I thought that coming to college and moving out of my parents house for the first time would be intimidating and scary, but the Tech experience really welcomed me. They start off by having all first year students come a week ahead of all other students, and then they pair you up with a group of your major and have tons of activities planned. This was a great way for me to meet new people and become comfortable at this school before any classes even started. After Orientation week, the big school with new people became less daunting and I've grown to love every bit of it!
