Milwaukee School of Engineering Reviews
t is a very challenging school. If you are looking for easy grades or parties then it is NOT for you. I know people land their career in east coast and west coast so you are not limited in midwest. Again, there is no easy grade so please blame yourself if you dont have a good gpa. In fact, i dont have a good gpa but i was able to get multiple job offers before graduation. I was told by employers and alumnus that employer will take MSOE over UW-Madison quite often. I really appreciate the teachers and people that i met there!
Milwaukee School of Engineering provides students with an excellent education. All classes and labs are completely taught by the professors, since there are no teacher assistants. In their first term, students take classes within their major. This helps students discern whether their chosen major is the right fit and provides immediate exposure to material that they will use in their collegiate and post-collegiate careers. By using the trimester system, the school gives its students exposure to a large range of classes and material. If one succeeds at the school, a degree from Milwaukee School of Engineering is highly respected, at least in the surrounding area. The school provides all of the necessary tools to find a quality job before graduating.
My experience at MSOE University has been more than I imagined. The professors are willing to help with any questions about course material and are very open to helping students during office hours and class time. Being a part of the Women's soccer team has taught me about hard work, and what it means to be a part of a team which will help me in my career choice of nursing. The direct admit nursing program also is also an experience I am so glad to have. It is easy to seek help from other nursing students, as we are already in the program and not competing against one another to be accepted into it. It is also a huge advantage to start clinical a year earlier than schools that do not have direct admission.
