Montana Technological University Reviews
The school is welcoming and friendly, and there are ample opportunities to meet new people. I have been able to develop great relationships with teachers and faculty, which proves to help boost my confidence and my ability to learn. However, there is a lack of funding and attention to the success of the student on an administrative level. Teachers are either ill-informed or too busy to take notice of the requirements for graduation, and many students get lost in the system. I know many students, including myself, who have been forced into extra classes and semesters due to this neglect. Further, the resources available for students can be poor, and I have been forced to use multiple computer labs to simply finish one assignment. Lastly, the caliber of education varies teacher to teacher which inhibits my ability to maintain a standard for my own education. Overall, I am glad I attended this school but there are many things that concern me about this institution.
Having been a student who struggled with school in the past, I was hesitant to re-apply for college to reach my goal of becoming a Registered Nurse. At Montana Tech i have had wonderful instructors who have helped restore my confidence in my academic abilities, because of this i have been able to maintain a 4.0 GPA each semester and am loving the chance to work towards achieving my dreams!
Overall, there is nothing short of excellence at Montana Tech. With just over 2,800 students the student to faculty ratio is 15:1. Montana Tech's students connection to staff not only adds to the quality of education received BUT staff will aid students in obtaining internships, job placement after college (91%), and moving on to higher education. Montana Tech's hands on learning and dedicated staff guarantees a quality education no matter your major.
