Welcome From the Dean

Dear Friends,

On behalf of the College of Engineering, it is my pleasure to welcome you! We are committed to inspiring students, advancing knowledge, and innovating technological solutions to create a sustainable, just, and prosperous world.

Michigan Tech incorporates research into education, and students who enroll in the College of Engineering can look forward to opportunities to work with some of the top engineers and scientists in their fields. Whether the work takes place with industry, in developing nations, or in laboratories here on campus, our students, faculty, and staff engage issues of critical importance.

Sustainability is infused into all of our programs. Much of what we do is inspired by our proximity to Lake Superior—one of the largest concentrations of freshwater in the world. Our contributions extend far beyond the lab, classroom, and region. Projects vary widely, but in all cases advanced technology and resilience through innovation are major ingredients. And whether the work is done by a single investigator, or by a multidisciplinary team of faculty, staff, and students, the results can be stunning.

Here at Michigan Tech, we provide a world-class education within an inclusive, rewarding, and supportive community. Whether you are a prospective student, parent, or future colleague, I encourage you to contact me with any questions.

I also invite you to take a deeper look at the work of some of our faculty focused on Energy and Sustainability—Ana Dyreson (solar energy), Ezra Bar-Ziv (plastics recycling), Yun Hang Hu (hydrogen fuel cells), Rebecca Ong (bioenergy), Xin Xi (atmospheric monitoring), Judith Perlinger (air and water), and Chee-Wooi Ten (energy infrastructure).

Other multidisciplinary research areas within the College of Engineering include Advanced Manufacturing, Autonomy and Mobility, Engineering and Infrastructure, Engineering for Health, and Navigating our Environment. If you have a particular area of interest, be sure to let me know. I can help put you in touch with members of our faculty and staff.

Kind regards,

Audra Morse
