I am in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering

Many Professors are great, but a few really suck. The university doesn't seem to have the students best interest in mind. They do things just to get rated higher on charts, not to make the school a better place. They seem to be on this kick where they want to be a MIT or Harvard, but they just aren't, so they spend all your money trying to invest in research. When I came here they marketed themselves as a school who prepared undergraduates for an engineering job, now they are trying to be a research university. If I wanted to go to a research university I would have gone to MIT, not MTU. Labs are taught by TA's, who rarely speak English well. They don't do a good job of relating the labs to the classes. Labs feel like you are rushing though to get done, not learning how things work.
