What Students Are Saying

3.90 Average Rating
The people here are really awesome, though some people will look at us and say that we are complete geeks. There is really no place better for engineering, especially if you are interested in hands on programs. Although we are far from civilization, Tech is a place where you can build a strong community with your peers; you will find people on a wide spectrum and you will make friends who like to do the same things you do, as well as try things you never thought you'd do.

MTU is a snow covered refuge for all varieties of technology-addicts, with its own meme page and refreshing humor. The workload can be tough but the professors are relatable and the outdoor activities range from broomball, disc golf, and frisbockey, to Comic-Con, programming tournaments, and the boisterous MTU Pep Band. With fun traditions such as the Winter Carnival Snow Statues building and more career-oriented Enterprise organizations, MTU has something for everyone.
