Michigan Technological University Reviews
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!)
Michigan Tech as an institution boasts some of the best engineering programs in the nation, with high-quality facilities and experienced faculty and staff. Because of this quality, the coursework becomes proportionately more difficult; but by graduation, you'll have enough experience and resources to make applying these subjects to a real-world position a cakewalk. The biggest downsides are probably cost of attendance for out-of-state students without scholarships; the dorm living conditions during years of high attendance; actual versus expected length of education; and the fact that not every professor that you'll run across is going to be a gem. Michigan Tech as a whole is a quality university that makes a conscious effort to prepare future graduates with the information and skills that they need to leverage their degree in the job market to great success. The best way to learn how to take advantage of all that Tech has to offer is to come and find out for yourself.
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!
