Greg Sesselmann was working in the filtration business, using carbon in dry-cleaning filters, when it occurred to him that carbon might also solve a problem long faced by hunters: masking the odor of humans. He was right. The Michigan Tech materials science and engineering alumnus now runs Scent-Lok Technologies, a global company producing scent-eliminating hunting gear of all kinds.
Contributions to Michigan Tech help fund many important areas, none more so than our students. They receive financial assistance in the form of scholarships and fellowships, often thanks to alumni and friends of Michigan Tech. Generations of Discovery: the Campaign for Michigan Tech is targeting support for students to ensure they can continue their studies here. All the campaign priorities are on the website.
