Tomorrow Needs Civil Engineers That Support Infrastructure
Engineer sustainable solutions to our deteriorating infrastructure. Fix traffic congestion. Work on urban redevelopment and community planning. Tackle pollution and society's energy needs. Analyze risks posed by natural hazards, such as floods and earthquakes.
Civil engineering is evident in the designs of the Hoover Dam and the Interstate Highway. Design the next Golden Gate Bridge, Panama Canal, or Empire State Building. Civil engineers at Michigan Tech are ready for what tomorrow needs. Are you?
Engineering Enterprise Concentration
You can pursue an Enterprise concentration by taking part in Michigan Tech's award-winning Enterprise program. It's a great way to enhance your undergraduate degree. Enterprise is when students work in teams on real projects, with real clients, in an environment that's more like a business than a classroom. Choose from among 25 Enterprise teams on campus to invent products, provide services, and pioneer solutions. Tackle real-world design projects for industry sponsors or take part in a national competition (or both). This concentration adds courses in business and entrepreneurship.
My Story: Naomi Elliot, MTUengineer
I wanted to have an option to move anywhere and have future job security. Additionally, there are so many opportunities in civil engineering that I love—being able to be outside on job sites or inside designing.
