Stay tuned for the 2013 Silicon Valley Experience Announcement
In spring of 2011 and 2012, 15 students have traveled from Michigan Technological University in Houghton, Michigan to the world hub of start-ups and entrepreneurs—Silicon Valley. This eye-opening experience focused on immersing students in real companies, with real players, and the current challenges they face.
This year, the trip is scheduled for early March and will once again place students in the presence of successful innovators and creative leaders. Visits with entrepreneurs, inventors, managers and companies including Brocade, Cisco, and Google provide the students with a first-hand understanding of technology built enterprises that are revolutionizing global business. This type of experiential learning is the foundation of our educational experience at Michigan Tech.
