Most Helpful Review for Milwaukee School of Engineering

The Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) is a much smaller school than many of the other top engineering universities in the Midwest. The size of the class is a major factor for getting a better education. Because of the smaller number of students, there are fewer students in each class. The largest lectures range from 26 to 30 students. With the class sizes this small, the students and professors get to know each other easily. (There are no teacher’s aides at MSOE, only professors). At MSOE, the time in the labs play a large role in getting the students involved...

    Really good community feel; not too big but not too small. The resources are really helpful, whether its for tutoring, career services, or even student life. Material is hard, but with help and focus it is completely doable.

    Tough but incredibly meaningful experience. This school will push you past your limits and that is exactly what you need. Get all the professor time that you need.

    MSOE is a great school for academics and that's it. No athletic scene, party scene, girls, or anything fun. They work you until you want to leave which is why 50% of your grade transfers.

    MSOE is just a really nice small school for nerdy kids to be their nerdy selves. You can't walk to class without running into at least one person that you know. The classes are small and the professors are always willing to help.

    You can get help almost all the time from a variety of people, both students and teachers. It is a smaller school which allows for more attention when needed. You are able to get started in your major specific classes right away which is helpful.

    MSOE is a great college if you are a hard worker and truly know what you want to do. The professors are tough, but as long as you are respectful you'll be fine. There's also a lot to do if you are 21 or older, if not, there isn't too much.

    If you aren't 100% sure you want to be an engineer, don't go to MSOE!!! (I created an account for the sole purpose of letting potential students know they more often than not should NOT go to MSOE)

    The rules and guidelines in this school are very conservative and require many general courses that are nothing but filler and a waste of time. However, the engineering and mathematics courses move very quickly and a lot of outside classwork must be done to get average grades.
