Founded in 1874, Rose Hulman Institute of Technology has been ranked the No. 1 undergraduate engineering college in the U.S. for over two decades. Our beautiful campus in west central Indiana is home to some of the nation’s best science, technology, engineering, and math students, faculty and facilities.
Here, your STEM education isn’t just about getting a degree, or even about getting a job (but we can pretty much guarantee you’ll get a great one). It’s about taking what you learn and applying it toward your passion. You’ll do that with professors who love to teach using real-world applications. Beginning your first year, you’ll have access to hands-on projects using state-of-the-art equipment. Our 11:1 student-to-faculty ratio means you’ll get to know your professors and they’ll get to know you.
So whether you want to match your mathematics major with your love of theater, or use a 3D printer to tinker with a project in our MakerLab, Rose-Hulman will help you make it happen.

Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology Reviews
Certain departments are better than others faculty and support-wise, (ME/Civil > CS/EE etc.). Food is also alright, but sucks during the weekends. Campus is safe, Terre Haute is a quiet city, won't be much to do though w/o a car. On-campus housing/tuition is overpriced for what you get.
Its a good school if you want to go into STEM, but it may be better to go to a state school if it has a strong program for what you want and you're self driven.
