The campus of MTU is located in the city of Houghton. It has been listed as “The 100 Best Small Towns of America”. The nearest big city is most definitely Detroit but it is farther to drive from Houghton to Detroit, than from Detroit to Washington, DC. The area surrounding MTU is known for its mining activities. In fact, MTU started out as a training school for mining engineers. Due to its location in the northwestern portion of the Upper Peninsula, Houghton is isolated from the state's most populous areas.
MTU has a picturesque campus with building dedicated to different areas of research which serve as centres of excellence. Dow Environmental Sciences and Engineering Building, The Electrical Energy Resource Center and Advanced Technology Development Complex, which is a start-up discussion hub, are some of the integral parts of the university. The college also has an Industrial Design Centre in collaboration with Ford. Wow!
There are a number of halls of residence on campus with varying staying conditions. One of them was constructed as recently as 2010. The campus enjoys ultra-fast internet speeds, the network of which is setup and maintained by networking giants Juniper Networks. Again, Wow!
The off-campus living options are also easily available especially in the Houghton and Hancock areas. A studio apartment will cost around $350 per month. Our sources explicitly tell us that off-campus housing is cheaper than living on-campus.
Michigan is known for erratic changes in weather. Snow is something you will HAVE TO adjust to if you intend to stay at MTU, since snow makes its presence felt round the year. You may have to expand your budget for winter clothing.
The course at MTU is well supported by academic advisers to students and the usage of technology in a live lecture. The professors are very knowledgeable and are easily accessible to the students outside lectures for various discussions on their career and research.
For students with decent or even average profiles, getting a fellowship won’t be so difficult at Michgian Technological University. Also, there are a lot of chances that you might get some Fianacial Aid at the time of admission. Students in the past have got anythin from $3,000 to $10,000 fee waiver for the entire course.
To be very honest, the on-campus opportunities won’t be too many here as most major companies prefer students from University of Michigan and Michigan State University during their career fair. However, the state of Michigan itself is extremely industrialised. Possibility of finding jobs in the aerospace, automobile or in the mechanical industry at large is good. So students can be rest assured that there is at least some job scope near and around them.
Low Tuition Fee and Good chances of scholarships are some strong points for MTU, along with massive exposure for industrial, mechanical and automobile engineering jobs. These students should definitely consider MTU as a keen option.
