Michigan Technological University seeks a visionary leader to serve as chair of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Michigan Technological University is a public research university founded in 1885 in Houghton, Michigan, and is home to more than 7,000 students from 55 countries around the world. Consistently ranked among the best universities in the country for return on investment, the University offers more than 125 undergraduate and graduate degree programs in science and technology, engineering, computing, forestry, business and economics, health professions, humanities, mathematics, social sciences, and the arts. The rural campus is situated just miles from Lake Superior in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, offering year-round opportunities for outdoor adventure.
More than $77 million in total research expenditures and 18 research centers and institutes help us foster a world-class and diverse faculty, staff, and student population. Partnering with industry and federal institutions like the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the National Science Foundation, the Environmental Protection Agency, and research organizations within the Department of Defense, we develop, apply, create, and demonstrate the future in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
We work across disciplines to do things like building nanosatellites, equipping vehicles with technologies that improve ecological decisions and energy use, deploying underwater robots, and developing the technologies health providers need to do their jobs—better.
