4 College Junior

Academics: My major (MSE) is small and this makes being able to meet with professors personally and asking questions one on one is easy. Also, there are a lot of people within the major who are always willing to help with everything. Curriculum is hard but manageable. There are so many job opportunities as well.

3 College Junior

Academics: It's hit or miss with professors. Workload and difficulty of the material is really all dependent on the professor you have.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: competitive, manageable workload, help available

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Once again, at Michigan Tech, you get what you pay for and you had better be willing to work hard to get through it and get a good job. The workload is not too bad as long as you get started at a decent time and do not allow things to build up.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Registration is all online and very easy to navigate. There are classes that are dedicated study classes for a specific topic and advisers will help if you can not figure out what you need to do.
