Who We Are

MSOE students and faculty are among the best and brightest.

MSOE students are bright, creative, hard-working and fun to be around. Ours is a close-knit community of about 3,000 students, faculty and staff—large enough for big opportunities and small enough for personal attention.

Our faculty are passionate about teaching. MSOE does not use teaching assistants, and our professors have an average of seven years industry experience each. This allows them to bring their practical knowledge to the classroom. Small class sizes (an average of 21 students per class, 11 students per lab) keep instructors in close contact with students.
