The Enterprise Program

Sponsors

Sponsoring Design Expo provides your organization with excellent exposure in support of undergraduate education and gives you a first-hand look at the skill sets of soon-to-be Michigan Tech graduates. More than 1,000 student participants of Michigan Tech’s Enterprise and Senior Design teams showcase their project work and compete for awards. Students deliver more 50 presentations and 100 posters, encompassing a variety of disciplines. A distinguished panel of judges made up of corporate representatives and faculty members critique the projects.
