Michigan Technological University Reviews
Review Michigan Technological University
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!
I had an amazing time here. The school is very isolated and that can be tough. If you are willing to embrace the winters, outdoor activities, and the intense school work, you will have a great experience. MTU is a winter wonderland. Every winter out door activity is at your finger tips. Hockey, down hill skiing, xc skiing, snowshoeing. I never did most of those before Tech, but I got the opportunity to at tech. I continue to do most of those to this day! The summers are second to none. MTU also has world class mountain biking (see copper harbor too). KBC is world class beer! I didn't know how good I had it up there until I moved to other parts of the country. As I mentioned before, the school work is intense. It takes a crazy/smart person to survive at tech. Right out of college, I made $50k. 8 years out, I make $90k. My civil engineering degree has given me the opportunity to live and work all over the country. MI, LA, FL, PA. My job also requires me to travel all over the country!
