Intensive English as a Second Language
The IESL Program provides international students with high quality English language instruction and cultural training needed for success in academic study at the University, and in North American society. Summer, Fall, and Spring enrollments are now available.
Students from international partner universities may be admitted for up to one year of studies on our campus with the permission of their home university. Exchange students choose Michigan Tech for its reputation for academic excellence, world-class research and teaching facilities, and supportive community.
Studying abroad has never been easier or more affordable. Students who study abroad have a competitive advantage for job placement, promotions, and admission to graduate and professional programs. Receive credit by studying at one of many international partner schools, partner programs, or through our faculty led programs.
Michigan Tech has garnered a reputation for excellence in our science, technology, engineering, and math programs. Our commitment to quality also extends to our other programs and areas of study. In fact, Michigan Tech offers over 120 undergraduate degree programs, including Business Administration, Kinesiology, Humanities, Psychology, and more.
Forty-five percent of Michigan Tech students pursuing studies at the graduate level are international. The students and their families find the community supportive and the academic programs first-rate. Graduate school rankings by U.S. News and World Report rate four of Michigan Tech’s graduate engineering programs in the top 50 nationwide.
The International Programs and Services Office provides administrative and transition support for all exchange visitors and their dependents. We foster collaboration with international partner universities and develop relationships leading to cross-cultural exchanges at all levels. Michigan Tech is pleased to host professors, short-term scholars, and research scholars.
Dual Degree Programs
Students enrolled in our dual degree programs have an opportunity to receive a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree from two universities by studying at Michigan Tech and a partner university abroad. The International Programs and Services Office serves both incoming and outbound students with their visa needs.
