How many people does it take to build a computer? At Michigan Tech, lots—and that’s a good thing! Our crazy smart computer engineers use their talents to conceive, design, and integrate complete computer systems from scratch. Computer engineering is a growing field, and our program’s innovative classes and hands-on research will give you a competitive edge—whether you’re applying to graduate school or working in industry.
So put on the “ping pong ball suit” in our Immersive Visualization Studio and create a 3-D world. Then design a new graphics card to run it. You’ll work where the hardware and software meet!
