Michigan Technological University Michigan Technological University

Michigan Tech was founded in 1885 in response to the first mining boom in the US—the clamor for Michigan’s copper, which preceded the California Gold Rush by several years.

At its outset, the college trained mining and metallurgical engineers. Today, the University offers certificates, minors, associate’s, bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral degrees in the arts and human sciences, business, computing, engineering, environmental studies, sciences, and technology.

Michigan Tech undergraduates have the advantage of an education that emphasizes study across disciplines, team learning, and research; our graduate students receive intensive, advanced instruction and the opportunity to pursue research in a wide range of academic programs. Overall, our institution has gained worldwide attention for innovative education; our faculty strive to be mentors; our academic programs stress learning hand in hand with application; and our students learn to inquire and discover knowledge.
