Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about the School of Technology at Michigan Tech. The School is an exciting place to study, where students have the opportunity to experience and develop an understanding of the latest technologies as you prepare for a career in applied engineering.
A point of pride for the School is its faculty, who have worked extensively in industry and who provide a focused, practical education that emphasizes significant laboratory experiences.
We have five undergraduate programs of study, each of which offers broad educational opportunities and career paths: Computer Network and System Administration, Construction Management, Electrical Engineering Technology, Mechanical Engineering Technology, and Surveying Engineering.
As part of Senior Project, our undergraduate students have the opportunity to participate in exciting projects. In the past, these have included cloud computing, harvesting wind power for a cranberry farm, an electric motorcycle, a human-powered hovercraft, health systems security, and the design and building of test equipment for an audio-speaker company.
Fall 2011 marks a milestone for the School as its first graduate program is added to the curriculum—a master’s in integrated geospatial technology. This program trains students to acquire and process geospatial data by employing surveying, geodetic science, photogrammerty, cartography, and mapping. Students will become expert users of all the new, sophisticated technology in satellite systems, remote sensing capabilities, precision surveying instruments, computing, data networks, laser systems, radar, and sonar.
We challenge our students, fostering the knowledge and skills necessary to begin a rewarding career and to become a lifelong learner. There is only one certainty in technology: continuous change. We prepare our students to be a leader in the design and implementation of new technology that will benefit all of us, as we work together to fashion a prosperous and sustainable global community.
