What Students Are Saying

3.90 Average Rating
"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.
Tessa from Waunakee, WI
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.
