Why Choose MSOE?

Students get real-world experience in top-ranked programs, from expert faculty. At graduation, you’ll be prepared to enter some of the most in-demand careers. In fact, in 2014-15, 96% of our graduates got the job or into the graduate school of their choice. There are many reasons why MSOE stands out compared to other highly ranked universities. Here are just a few.

Expert Professors

Teaching comes first at MSOE. Every class (which average just 21 students) and lab we offer are taught by seasoned faculty members. There are no teaching assistants here.

Real-World Experience

Most universities talk about offering hands-on work, but few can match the average of 600 hours of laboratory experience you will get as a student at MSOE. In fact, we have more labs on our campus than classrooms—and they’re all available to undergraduates.

Top-Ranked Programs

MSOE’s undergraduate engineering programs have been ranked 10th in the nation by U.S. News & World Report.

Four-Year Graduation Guarantee

MSOE is one of only a handful of universities across the country that guarantees students will get the classes they need to graduate in four years.
