Michigan Technological University Top Questions

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?


The courses are hard. The school lets nearly anyone in but you need to be successful to stay.


I have come across a professor or two whose class was not run off of fact, but rather their opinion on the facts, and when it came to their grades, you recieved a score based on the mood the were in at the time of grading. Though I believe that to be quite aggravating, that is a tiny fraction compared to that of the whole staff and faculty.


How unbalanced the grading scales are across the departments.


There's so many things that I want to do that are available and not enough time to do all of them.


I would say that a lot of my classes happen to be really big. I am not a fan of big classes and that is why i came here because they were supposed to offer the small class sizes but I have only had a few classes that were less than 60 people in it.


This school is not challengeing, rewarding, or a good preparation for the job field. Teachers make the classes too easy in hopes of making the students more friendly/happy. It seems impossible for a student to fail a class. Too many students are allowed to ride the coat-tails of classmates via group projects. Overall this school is not worth its value in terms of edcuation, I can only hope the degree slip has more value.


The most frustrating thing about Michigan Tech is the work load. Sometimes it just seems like a bit too much. However, you learn a lot from the amount of homework and hands on labs that are assigned. The classes wouldn't seem to bad as long as there wasn't so much homework every week from every class.


It gets very cold in the winter.


The most frustrating thing about our school is that learning continues up until the final week of exams. There is no buffer zone to allow for previous material to really be absorbed before final exams come around. The material we are learning is not easy in the least bit either.


The snow. The poeple.
