5 College Freshman

Academics: As a highly recognized school in the field of engineering, it gives students a great advantage to get internships and co-ops at professional companies all over the Midwest. The engineering programs are rigorous and require a lot of hard work and dedication, but at the same time provides students with real life situations and how to apply what we learn in the classroom to real life jobs.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Great school for engineering. The professors are willing to help out with anything you need and the advisers are great.

5 College Freshman

Academics: It is one of the best schools for engineering. All the students are very smart and there are always places to get help. The only one issue is that there is a very high workload.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I am a student in mechanical engineering. Michigan Tech is ranked pretty high in the nation for a graduate offering university. I am quite comfortable knowing I will get a great job when I graduation from this school. As anyone would assume, mechanical engineering has a heavy workload, but nothing that I was not expecting.

5 College Freshman

Academics: I love the academics at my school. The program I am in offers a practicum at the end which is excellent.
