My Michigan Tech: Emma LaFleur

Emma talks about why she chose EM and Michigan Tech. The short answer? School is never boring and either is life on and off campus—thanks to outdoor activities, student organizations, and community.

Lead teams. Develop products. Pitch your ideas.

Our graduates bridge business and engineering in one of only two engineering management programs in Michigan and 28 in the U.S. recognized by the American Society for Engineering Management.

You’ll complete a comprehensive business curriculum, as well as courses in science, engineering, and math, preparing you to bridge the gap between engineering and business.

Develop emerging technologies through IT Oxygen Enterprise and get paid for it. Pitch your product idea in competitions on and off campus. Meet mentors.
