Michigan Tech has agreements with both domestic and international universities that convey various benefits to students. Information on the individual agreements can be obtained from the table.
International Dual Degree Agreements
Michigan Tech participates in several dual graduate degree programs with partner universities. These agreements enable students to receive two degrees, one from each institution participating in the agreement, upon completion of the intended course of study.
Michigan Tech supports a wide variety of programs that allow domestic students to spend time at another university, or for students from those universities to spend time at Michigan Tech. Students interested in international exchange programs should contact the International Programs and Services office for more information.
Incoming Student Agreements
These agreements allow for incoming students to transfer from their home institution to Michigan Tech.
Michigan Tech also partners with a variety of entities to enhance and expand opportunities for graduate education beyond agreements with individual universities.
- MIGS—Michigan Graduate Schools transfer of credits
- Peace Corps and Peace Corps Coverdell Fellows Programs
Industry and Government Partnered Programs
Distance options are available in some programs for students who are employees of cooperating industry, government, and organization partners and who meet admissions requirements. Interested students should contact their supervisor or the Graduate School for more information. Each agreement is site and program specific, particularly with regard to how the student-advisor relationship will be maintained.
Partner program agreements typically contain the following components:
- approval of the site facilities, such as laboratories, libraries, computer facilities, as appropriate to the program
- appointment of a qualified on-site co-advisor to ad hoc graduate faculty status
- periodic visits to the Michigan Tech campus in Houghton at specific mileposts in the degree (e.g., orientation, proposal defense, final oral defense)
- agreements may also include additional requirements such as provisions for Michigan Tech faculty time on site with the student, summer school residency, video-conferences for periodic reviews.
