Milwaukee School of Engineering Reviews

The class sizes are small (20-30 students), and the professors have a wealth of knowledge, often including industry experience. The school has abundant connections with local companies, and finding a job is so easy it's almost a guarantee. Internships aren't difficult to find either. A lot of people here are very socially awkward, but it actually levels the playing field really well. While there are still a few Gen Eds, you break into major-specific courses right away. As for a few disadvantages, the administration seems to only be concerned with money, and the school creates extra difficulty where it doesn't need to. For an engineering school, the tech could be more up to date. All in all, there are positives and negatives.
Review Milwaukee School of Engineering
Its a great melting pot of cultures. Where students help each other to succeed and mentor each other. The policy is no one is left behind . The student atmosphere is wonderful where everyone respects each other. The professors are professional and teach you the newest developments in your field of studies. The professors go that extra mile to help their students succeed. The resources available for each student is great where consulars guide you through the best options that will benefit your success as a professional in your field.
MSOE was the right choice for me. The course load is challenging enough for me but not impossible (I'm a nursing student not an engineer), and leaves me with enough time to get involved on campus with InterVarsity and Theatre Troop and workout six days a week.
