My Michigan Tech: Abby Nelson

“As soon as I walked on campus I knew. I was coming to Michigan Tech.” Abby’s visit helped her decide on a school. Her love for math helped her choose a major: computer engineering—her favorite part is circuits and soldering. And her time on an Enterprise team (working on real projects with Ford and Fiat Chrysler), gives her the experience she needs for the career she wants.

Conceive, design, and build systems.

Computer engineers work comfortably on both sides of the digital hardware and software gap. You’ll develop versatility to work in numerous fields, including embedded systems, computer networks, robotics, or VLSI system design. 

Use lasers, microprobes, robots, and anechoic chambers in lab-based learning programs. Embed wireless transmitters into pacemakers, enabling real-time monitoring capabilities for cardiac physicians and their patients in the Wireless Communication Enterprise. Work one-on-one with a faculty member researching wearable technology, GPS-based systems, and more in the undergraduate Research Scholars Program. Develop and implement environmentally-aware, sustainable, and equitable engineering projects through Engineers Without Borders.

Michigan Tech’s computer engineering program gets you ready for the work you choose in a diverse field—from movie special effects to nanotechnology for bionic implants. Want to accelerate your career? You can do that, too—earn a master’s degree in one additional year through the Accelerated Master’s program.

"I chose Michigan Tech because of the people I met on my visit. I think the students are the reason I've stayed." Haden Wasserbaech, Computer Engineering
