Nerds Are Us!

NerdScholar, a financial literacy website for students, has named Michigan Tech’s software engineering programs in the Department of Computer Science the “most engaging” in the nation. Six schools were singled out in categories that include most engaging, most balanced, most variety, most innovative, most interdisciplinary and most real-world experience.

The website highlights Tech’s Enterprise and Senior Design programs and Pacesetters, an initiative to attract more women to computing careers.

NerdScholar helps college and university students make wise financial choices. The website walks students through the process of choosing a best-fit college, applying for financial aid, getting student loans, paying back those loans and landing a job. It also provides a step-by-step tuturorial on applying for federal financial aid.
