Add Value

The value of your education is more than the total cost of attendance or return on investment of your degree. As you look at colleges, look at the value you will get from the opportunities and experiences available to you. What’s different at Michigan Tech and how does that benefit you compared to other schools you’re considering?


Michigan Tech students have a 92 percent placement rate within six months of graduation (within their field of study) and are in the top 10 highest early career pay in the nation with a median starting salary of $66,400. In addition, we’re ranked 18th in the nation for return on investment.

Professors Know You by Name

Great for learning, but also great when you’re looking for a research opportunity or have questions about career goals. Thinking about grad school, med school, or law school? You’ll need a letter of recommendation. Who better to write one than a professor who knows you and can speak to your work ethic and abilities.

Small Classes

You’ll have some larger lectures at Tech, but the average class size is 25. For first-year students, it’s 28. You’ll know professors and they’ll know you. Ask questions. Engage in discussions. And get more out of your classroom experience.

Distance from Home

We are far from just about everywhere. Believe it or not, there is great value in distance from home. Michigan Tech students solve problems and gain independence—qualities employers say make them more career-ready than graduates of other schools.

Build Skills

Work on real projects on real teams starting your first semester. Design, build, communicate, and present. Use the same equipment found in industry and use it early in your college career. Build your resume your first year by developing skills and experiences employers look for.

Opportunities to Grow

Dive into what interests you. Pavlis Honors College. Enterprise. Study abroad. Co-ops and internships across the country. At Michigan Tech, there's opportunities to grow and experiences that will help you now—and in the future.

Small classes. Friendly professors. Crazy smart students.
