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!

So far, I have been communicating back and forth with some of the staff at MSOE because I want to start there in the fall and they have done nothing but treat mea like I am already apart of their family! They've done nothing but welcome me.
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.
