Michigan Technological University (www.mtu.edu) is a leading public research university developing new technologies and preparing students to create the future for a prosperous and sustainable world.
Michigan Tech began in 1885 as a school for mining engineers, to support the copper mines that flourished here. As the mines closed and the economy changed, Michigan Tech changed too, developing recognized expertise in automotive, civil, environmental and chemical engineering, as well as more recently, biomedical engineering and environmental science.
Michigan Tech stresses hands-on learning. Undergraduate participation in research is the norm. In our Enterprise Program and other special opportunities, students can try their hand at solving real-world problems, using the skills they've learned in class. They invest real money in the stock market; build satellites, snowboards, and video games; and journey to foreign nations to help the less-fortunate with improve their access to clean water, sanitation, schools and other societal needs.
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
