More About Our Mission

First-Year Engineering

Every engineering student takes the same foundational courses, and their math placement is determined by the Department of Mathematics. If you are undecided, explore your future possibilities with Engineering Explorations. When you are ready, move into your engineering discipline major.

BS in Engineering

The Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE) program offers flexibility for a custom path with EngineeringPlus or an Individualized plan. Students may also follow a defined pathway in Systems Engineering or Business.

Marty Lagina

Mechanical engineering alumnus Marty Lagina ’77 will deliver the annual First-Year Engineering Lecture.

More than 1,000 of Michigan Tech’s incoming engineering and computing students are expected to attend on Monday, October 2 at 6 p.m. in the Rozsa Center Auditorium.

Lagina is the CEO of Heritage Sustainable Energy, a winemaker, an attorney, and executive producer of the long-running reality TV show “The Curse of Oak Island,” now in its 10th season on the History Channel.

The title of Lagina's lecture is “I'm Not Here to Give You Advice: My Career Adventures with a Michigan Tech Degree.”

The First-Year Engineering Lecture Series provides an exciting opportunity to hear from some of the nation’s most innovative engineering leaders.

“You'll gain a sense of the many different career paths that are open to engineering graduates — career paths that allow you to positively impact the world.”Mary Raber, Chair, Department of Engineering Fundamentals
