If you are looking for a tough college to teach you everything you need to know, then this is the place for you. They go hard and dont go easy on you for any reason. Only bad part about this school is the food though! The people definitely make it bearable.
Review Your College
NMT has been the most stressful school I have ever attended, and not just because I am studying engineering, but because the professors really do not understand exactly what to lecture on. This is perhaps the most frustrating aspect of the school considering that my future depends on my performance in the classes. And my performance in the classes depend on my professor's method of teaching which so far have not been effective, and therefore my GPA is always at risk.
Tech is amazing at what it does - mostly engineering and science. I've seen freshmen talking about interviews with companies like Google and Honeywell and Sandia Labs and LANL and Microsoft. A large portion of students become tutors or TAs, and those tutors and TAs often will talk to even the freshmen about opportunities to find jobs.

There are bulletin boards with job opportunities all throughout the buildings, related to the specialties associated with that building. Alumni visit during the career fairs and 49ers to talk to students about opportunities for them.

Once, some of my classes closed for a day so that people could go to Albuquerque to attend a conference that could possibly get you a job. Many who went got interviews within a month or two.

You can just walk into the career center and they'll lend you an outfit for an interview or read over your resume. You might have to wait if it's lunch break or after they're closed, but still!
