Michigan Tech is ranked among the top schools in the country for producing successful students in environmental careers.
The rankings were released by College Factual, a website member of USA Today’s College Partner Network.
College Factual lists four undergraduate degrees in three areas within the field of natural resources and conservation at Michigan Tech.
The areas are natural resources conservation, forestry and wildlife management.
Tech was ranked in the top 10 in the nation for bachelor’s degree programs in the general area of natural resources and conservation.
It was also ranked 5th in the nation for its forestry programs.
Most college rankings are based on surveys of deans, faculty and students.
College Factual says its rankings are based on more objective data, including outcomes-based metrics, which College Factual defines as: “Can students in these programs actually make a living after graduation?”
In Michigan Tech’s case, the website determined that they can.
