The Silicon Valley Experience
Michigan Tech’s Silicon Valley Experience, a trip offered each year during Spring Break, is your chance to see real business in action—in a place that has become home to some of the world’s largest corporations: Fortune 1000 companies, software giants, high-tech startups, and more.
