2015 is the 65th anniversary of the formation of the Graduate School.  This is not to say that graduate education only began in 1960.  The first graduate students were actually on campus in 1889, only four years after Michigan Tech was established.  The first MS degrees were awarded in 1927 and first earned doctorates were granted in 1934.

Our annual reports review what happened during the past years. We are working hard to continuously improve and grow the Graduate School in upcoming years.
