SDSM& T FEATURED IN BARRON’S BEST BUYS IN COLLEGE EDUCATION
The South Dakota School of Mines & Technology ( SDSM& T) is featured in the newly updated 5th edition of Barron’s Best Buys in College Education. SDSM& T is one of only 300 universities in the nation to be included in the latest edition of the popular college guide published by Barron’s Educational Series.
The newest edition of Barron’s Best Buys in College Education profiles the nearly 300 four- year colleges that were determined to give students and parents the best value for their education dollar. The college guide features public and private universities from across the U. S. with wide- ranging academic programs that include business, liberal arts, science, education and engineering. In addition to up- to- date figures on tuition and fees, the publication includes information on each university’s student body, academic programs, computer and library facilities, campus life, financial aid, special programs, and payoff after graduation.
“ Our students receive a good return on their investment in a degree from SDSM& T,” said Dr. Richard Gowen, SDSM& T President. “ Being included in Barron’s Best Buys in College Education is a great honor. We are pleased that the value of the quality education offered by SDSM& T has been recognized by this prestigious resource guide for students and parents.”
Within six months of receiving their degrees, 90- 92% of SDSM& T’s graduates are placed, with 70- 72% working in their career fields and 20% continuing on to graduate or professional schools. The starting salaries for last year’s SDSM& T graduates average $ 43,166 for engineering majors and $ 37,390 for science majors offered by SDSM& T.
