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 was established 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, health sciences, biomedical engineering, environmental science and computer science. Michigan Tech faculty are known for their innovative concepts and entrepreneurial spirit. In fact, so many faculty and alumni have turned ideas developed at Michigan Tech into marketable products and thriving high-tech businesses that the north shore of Lake Superior is coming to be known as Innovation Shore.
Michigan Tech stresses learning by doing. Undergraduate participation in research is the norm. In our Enterprise Program and other special programs, 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 improve their access to clean water, sanitation, schools and other human needs.
More than 93 percent of graduates find jobs in their fields within six months of graduation.
