Review South Dakota School of Mines & Technology
The South Dakota School of Mines and Technology is a small university located in the beautiful Black Hills. On campus you will enjoy a family-like feel and will have the opportunity to get to know, and possible work right alongside, professors. Each department is dedicated to helping their students succeed. The placement for careers coming out of school is greater than 95%!
I have been blessed with many professors who have been truly interested in maximizing my potential in and beyond their class. Several professors have gone above and beyond to provide me with opportunities extending my learning and providing hands-on applications that most engineers will not see until they are in the field. Additionally, my adviser and professors have gone out of their way to ensure I was on track with my classes necessary for graduation. Furthermore, I have been prepared with mock interviews to assist me with interviewing for internships, as well as interviews for the working world. One professor, in particular, has set up labs specifically for me, so upon completion of all labs, he will go to the university to hopefully secure extra credits for me in his specialty field.
The career opportunities at this school are great! There is a 98% placement rate. This means that majority of the students graduate with a job offer. There is a career fair every semester which allows for students to get an internship/co-op/job very easily. We have over 200 well known companies come to recruit from our school as Mines graduates are highly sought after. The career center is also an amazing resource and will jump through hoops to help any student find a job or review resumes. We also have a program called Mines Advantage that our employers know about and allow our students to get jobs.
