The Enterprise Program

Design Expo

The 20th annual Design Expo will be held on Thursday, April 16, 2020 from 8am - 4pm in the Memorial Union Building Ballroom.

Hosted by the Pavlis Honors College and the College of Engineering, Design Expo highlights hands-on, discovery-based learning at Michigan Tech.

More than 1000 students in Enterprise and Senior Design teams showcase their work and compete for awards. A panel of judges, made up of distinguished corporate representatives and Michigan Tech staff and faculty members, critique the projects. Many team projects are sponsored by industry, which allows students to gain valuable experience through competition at Design Expo, as well as direct exposure to real industrial problems.
