College of Engineering

Welcome From the College

Dear Friends,

We are committed to inspiring students, advancing knowledge, and innovating technological solutions to create a sustainable, just, and prosperous world. With an entering engineering freshman class of about 950, 16 degrees to choose from, and 160 faculty in the College of Engineering alone, we provide a world-class education with the famous Michigan Tech pedigree. And we do it in a safe, inclusive environment, located in the beautiful Upper Peninsula of Michigan, with attractions including a rich history of mining, outdoor adventure, and world-class skiing.

Employers recognize the quality of our students and graduates by flocking to campus each semester. More than 350 employers regularly recruit for internships, coops, and for full-time employees. Students average seven interviews, and 98% are employed within their field of study, enlist in the military, or are enrolled in a graduate school within six months of graduation.

Our faculty are leaders in innovation—strongly active in research programs—who bring this knowledge to the classroom at both undergraduate and graduate levels. We have over 30 endowed chairs and professorships which demonstrate the quality of our faculty and their research.

From our establishment in 1885 to train mining engineers, to this day, we are known for quality, integrity, courage, innovation and #tenacity. Come visit us.*

Very best regards,

Janet Callahan
Dean, College of Engineering
