The Enterprise Program
Design Expo project displayed on table and with posters

Previous sponsors say...

"Michigan Tech’s Annual Design Expo presents an abundance of creativity and sophistication, with demonstrations and displays that energize and excite. The Enterprise and Senior Design Student Projects are testament to the comprehensive education and rigorous preparation engineering students achieve at MTU. When you combine dedicated and involved faculty and staff, strong administrators, and tremendously supportive alumni, donors and corporate benefactors, the result is an environment that produces top-tier engineers who are fully prepared to take on and master the most difficult real-world challenges."

—Jon E. Jipping, PE, '91

Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, ITC Holdings Corp.
