Undergraduate Admissions

Engineering Technology Scholars-IMPRESS Program

Students working with circuits

Incoming first-year and community college transfer students who plan to major in electrical engineering technology, mechanical engineering technology, or computer network and system administration are invited to apply for the Engineering Technology Scholars-IMPRESS program. In addition to an annual scholarship, students admitted to the program will engage in high-impact curricular and co-curricular activities designed to increase the success of academically-talented students.

Students receiving an ETS-IMPRESS scholarship will be admitted to the Pavlis Honors College at Michigan Technological University, an innovative and inclusive honors program designed around high-impact educational opportunities. Admission to the Honors College is not GPA-based, instead focusing on commitment and motivation to achieving your goals and becoming a graduate with depth of knowledge in your own major as well as interdisciplinary breadth.

Award Value

Annual awards are valued at $4,500 and will be awarded in addition to other Michigan Tech merit-based aid students may qualify for. Additionally, transfer students will receive a $2,500 stipend for a seven-week research bridge program the summer before their first semester.

Need-based aid is also available for qualifying students. First-year awards are renewable for four years (eight semesters); transfer student awards are renewable for two years (four semesters). Students must remain enrolled in electrical engineering technology, mechanical engineering technology, or computer network and system administration and meet annual renewal criteria to maintain the award.
