Michigan Tech has a reputation of being a tough school and it's reputation is well earned. Every class I've taken has been a challenge but nothing too extreme. The university takes academic dishonestly very seriously and strives to ensure that every grade is well earned and up to snuff with what's demanded in the real world. Despite all of this, it was an easy transition from high school. Michigan Tech has dedicated learning centers for each field of study, staffed with students who know the material backwards and forwards. There's always someone to help you with something. The biggest mistake...

    It's in a great area. It focuses on my preferred Field of Study. The Demographic is completely different than where I'm from.

    "Easy to get in, but hard to stay in" is one of the truest sayings that go around. Going here is a lot of hard work but it is worth it.

    michigan tech provides a top education along with an atmosphere where students thrive. as a tech student almost everyone is an average of 500 miles away from home and therefore we form a very close community with the university and with the keweenaw community in general. the size of the school allows for a learning environment filled with hands-on experience, while still having the knowledge, skill and reputation to have career fairs with over 300 companies in attendance hoping to hire some of our 5600 students, 96% of which will graduate with a job in their field or go into a graduate program.

    They have spectacular placement rates for engineering and lots of good networking and career fair opportunities. It's a wonderful place to be outside, whether you're on a bike, in a 4-wheeling rig, or just on your own two feet. It's a small town full of STEM majors and yoopers, discrimination still has a ways to go up here.

    Michigan Tech is really a great place to start if you are interested in any sort of STEM degree. The work load isn't bad and the people here are really encouraging in your studies. There are so many opportunities as well to get involved in your degreee whether it is through organizations, enterprise teams or jobs.

    Michigan Tech is a fantastic school for any nerdy, snow-loving, future engineer. The medium size allows you to connect personally with professors but also access resources not found at smaller schools. The academics are challenging but will amply prepare you for a job in the real world.

    The campus, despite being freakishly far away from any major city or sign of civilization, is beautiful and every experience I have had in the community has been a good one.

    Easily one of the best engineering schools in the nation. However, even though they do have good facilities for other majors, if you're not an engineering major then you're going to constantly be in the background to the university. Don't let that sway you from coming her though, this is an excellent school.
