"While NMT is impressive with the quality of its degrees, the students around campus have little chance to meet and there is just no good community for the students. Along with not giving the students a good outlet, several teachers talk down to students when you ask them questions. Overall, the school gave a detent education but the interaction between students was very poor."

"Despite the name, New Mexico Tech's real value is in it's people. There are incredibly talented professors in several fields (and just about all of them are nice, too!) I highly recommend taking a look at the interests of current faculty here if you plan to pursue a graduate degree."

"New Mexico Tech was a challenging yet rewarding school that I am proud to graduate from. The small campus allowed me to get around faster and make more friends, and the smaller classes allowed me to easily learn the subjects I was taking. I highly recommend this school."

"New Mexico Tech is and was the best decision I ever made for my education. The campus is beautiful and there is an abundance of things to do, even if the town of Socorro, NM is small. The class sizes are small and the professors really want to see you succeed. The classes can be tough, but there are ample opportunities to get help when needed. Most departments have free tutoring and even the professors will sit down with you to make sure you understand the material. In addition to a top notch education, New Mexico Tech offers varying levels of scholarships and will stack scholarships, meaning that if you receive more than one scholarship, you can use all of them towards your education. Finally, the average student at New Mexico Tech, at least when I attended, was slightly quirky and nerdy. In sharp contrast to my high school days, I finally felt like I fit right in."

"Very good education. Low tuition cost. Small classes and the professors are easy to contact with questions generally. It's a tech school so if you go for a non tech degree you will still have high math prerequisites. Small campus, easy to get around. Small outdoorsy type of town. There are quite a bit of activities put on by school groups so you can stay busy with those as well as clubs."

"Since this is a technical school, many of the programs are very hands on and provide a well rounded degree,"

"NMT is a small technical school. Unlike large universities, funding for basic things, such as computers and printers, are more limited than at larger, wealthier schools. While the quality of teaching is generally high, the breadth of courses offered is relatively narrow. Although graduate student stipends (excluding starting TA salaries, which are much lower than research positions) are typically sufficient to cover housing and food costs, NMT does not provide a tuition waiver. Therefore, tuition payments are deducted from paychecks (and international students cannot benefit from education expense deductions on their taxes). Furthermore, NMT does not provided subsidized health or dental insurance for graduate students. The lack of unsubsidized tuition/health insurance decreases the affordability of living in Socorro, NM."
