Degree: Civil Engineering

Michigan Tech is a great Civil Engineering Program. I think it is highly under-rated in the national rankings.

Degree: Chemical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

The university is located in small town of Houghton. It is very beautiful scenic wise but not much social aspects like big cities. For grad life and work load i find the city perfect. A lot of research in laboratories and supporting staff. Job aspects wise its very good for Mechanical and electrical students. Other department you have to toil it out a bit and network smartly.

Degree: Mechanical Engineering

The education quality and the campus facilities are very good. The only thing I wish to complain is the reduced number of courses specifically in the field of design and manufacturing .

Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

Life at Michigan Tech is great. Lot of support from faculties and department, some even get financial aid based on performance. The city and the university are highly secure and their is no crime. Its one of the safest place in USA. The people are very good and very helping. The best part of Michigan Tech is the spectacular landscape of beautiful Upper peninsula. Its great for adventure sports. Some cons are its remote and isolated location, lack of good public transport and extreme weather for few months.

Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2010

The EE department has many excellent faculty members who clearly care for the academic success of their students. From a research perspective, some faculty members are doing more relevant research than others. The research facilities are adequate, but in some areas are behind cutting edge. The overall connections from faculty/department to industry are weak, however the regional reputation of the university is strong.
