Research Opportunities

Undergraduate Research

As an undergraduate student at Michigan Tech, it’s simple: if you want to do research, you can. Real research—the kind that creates solutions for industry, gets patented (sometimes with your name on it!), or addresses the problems of our modern world.

We’re ranked among the top twenty universities in the US in the proportion of research that’s sponsored by industry. And nearly 25 percent of our invention disclosures include the names of students as inventors. Students also get published in scientific journals, present at national conferences, and interact with scientists and entrepreneurs from around the world.

Crazy-smart is just the beginning. Check out some of our undergrad students’ recent research projects.
