Engineering Fundamentals

First year students, get ready to meet Dean Kamen, world-famous inventor and entrepreneur, and founder of FIRST®. He's coming to Michigan Tech on Thursday, September 12!

Dean Kamen holds 440 US and foreign patents, including the Segway, the self-balancing personal transporter, and the first-ever drug infusion pump. At the age of 30, Kamen sold his first company, AutoSyringe, then founded DEKA Research to focus on innovations aimed to improve lives around the world. It started small and has now grown to a group of over four hundred. Kamen continues to push DEKA to be a place where no idea seems too big and where creativity and crazy cool gizmos reign supreme.
