On October 1, 1998, three-year NSF grant EEC-9872533, titled “Redesigning Engineering Education with Active Learning and Integration Through the Engineering Enterprise (REEALITEE),” is awarded to Michigan Tech. The next year, the program launched with the name that 4,821 (and counting!) Michigan Tech alumni from the last twenty years have used: Enterprise.
Twenty years of computers, robotics, and game development. Of better snowboards, open-source solutions, and space travel. Of clean snowmobiles and cinematography. Twenty years of learning about industry, leadership opportunities, occasional frustrations, and lifelong friendships.
If you were an Enterprise student, advisor, or sponsor, you're part of our history. Join the celebration.
