Expert Professors

Teaching comes first at MSOE. Every class (which averages just 21 students) and lab we offer is taught by seasoned faculty members who have an average of seven years of relevant business or industrial experience in their field. There are no teaching assistants here.

Best Value

MSOE’s average financial aid package is $23,666 (gift aid only), making the cost well within the reach of most families. But cost is only part of the equation; MSOE also offers tremendous value:

MSOE also guarantees students will get all of the classes needed to graduate in four years, when they need them, if they start and stay on track in their major.

Real-World Experience

Most universities talk about offering hands-on work, but few can match the hundreds of 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.

Direct Admission

The high quality of our incoming students enables us to offer them direct admission to their academic program, an extremely attractive benefit to students. They start in their major classes right away and don’t have to “apply” to a school or department in their sophomore year.

Top-Ranked Programs

MSOE’s undergraduate engineering programs have been ranked 10th in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. MSOE is also highly ranked by Forbes, Business Insider, Princeton Review, Payscale Inc. and others.

Four-Year Graduation Guarantee

MSOE is one of only a handful of universities across the country that guarantees students get all of the classes they need to graduate in four years. Undergraduate students who follow the program track for their major are assured to get the classes they need, when they need them!

Career Placement Rates

Few universities in the country can beat our average placement rate of 97 percent — not to mention graduates’ average starting salary of $60,146.

Location, Location, Location

Living and learning in East Town — our vibrant downtown neighborhood and one of Milwaukee’s most exciting and safest — is walking distance from professional opportunities, academic, cultural and recreational opportunities. And we’re just blocks from Lake Michigan!

A Place to Fit In

You’ll have plenty of opportunities to get fit, get involved or just get social with like-minded friends who have similar interests. MSOE offers more than 70 academic, professional and social organizations and club and intercollegiate sports.
