What Students Are Saying

3.71 Average Rating
New Mexico Tech is a very good School, and has one of the most difficult curriculum I've seen. However, the reputation of the school with companies across the globe has allowed graduates from this school to easily acquire high paying jobs. So, though the school may be very tough, it is worth it in the end.

New Mexico Tech is wildly underrated by prospective students.It's so small that opportunities are abundant. Classes are excellent.
Quintessa from Socorro, NM
Tech is a great place for those who want a good education. You have to be a special kind of person to go here though. You have to be dedicated and enjoy small towns.
