I feel like people on this site justQuite BrightMechanical Engineering
I feel like people on this site just go here if they have a bad experience with a school. I'll be honest, there are quite a few students that start out as freshmen from tiny towns expecting to party hard and wind up with an engineering degree and make 100K. I feel that this is the case with most of the reviews on here. That is not how this school works (I do feel an average monkey can graduate from the petroleum program, but that is another story entirely). This is a science and engineering school, with very technical classes. It isn't supposed to be easy. The teachers are super smart and helpful. They all know you by name and are willing to help out at the drop of a hat. If that isn't your style, they have a tutor center where you can go to get help with anything from homework to test prep on specific classes. They do their best to give every student the best shot at success. Students (that are here to get an education) are all super friendly. The surrounding town is an old mining town with a small town feel. Many students think that drinking is the only thing to do, and yes, you can find someone to do that every day of the week if you like. And no, Katy Perry won't be coming to town anytime soon. If you like to go biking, skiing, mountain climbing, camping, etc, get some friends and go do it! Its a perfect spot to do all of this! The school isn't going to drive you to the lake and grill burgers for you, you got to do that yourself. So stop saying there isn't anything to do here lol. I've played on school organized dodgeball/softball teams as well as soccer every Sunday. So I don't know where all these reviews about "nothing to do" are coming from. Wake up and be active!

Great school for CanadianQuite BrightEngineering Department
Great school for Canadian transfers from SAIT outside of that I do not know why you would ever attend this school. Expensive but very easy and the amount of time spent on school work outside of school is minimal. Hope you like alcohol because that is all there is to do around here.

As a non-traditional transfer student, I am veryNot so bright
As a non-traditional transfer student, I am very satisfied with MT Tech. Everyone I have had contact with at the university has been very helpful and if one talks to the relevant person before-hand I have found them to be very accommodating for my personal needs.Everyone that I have met in my program has been helpful, from upper-class men to professors and staff.
