Hello, Future Husky

Michigan Tech is one of the nation's premier technological universities and we prepare students to create the future. We're ready for what tomorrow needs. Are you?

Tomorrow Needs You

The world is changing. Fast. Tomorrow needs talented visionaries and new solutions. At Michigan Tech, you'll design, build, code, and lead. You'll work and play on the shores of Lake Superior, with 5,000+ acres of research forests and limitless opportunities for outdoor adventure. Our unique Enterprise Program lets you work on real industry projects, from building and launching spacecraft for NASA to designing advanced robotics systems. We're ready for tomorrow. Are you?

Degrees for What Tomorrow Needs

Hands-on is the hallmark of a Tech education. From 117,000 hours of paid undergraduate research with faculty (starting as early as your first year) to real projects given by industry and government sponsors, Tech students redefine what a bachelor's degree can be. With over 120 degree programs (60+ undergraduate majors) to choose from, you're sure to find an academic home where you can geek out with other students who love the same things you do.
