    Pros

    Michigan Tech has a ton of experienced professors, faculty and staff. They have both new and old equipment to learn on, and typically upgrade to the top of the line as it comes out. The learning experience here is great, but it is like any education, you must apply yourself!

    Cons

    Some times out of date equipment is used.
