A Place For Opportunity

to business. At Michigan Tech, you are trained to address complex research questions
from multiple perspectives, while gaining real-world experiences in making scientific,
technical, and practical knowledge accessible to any audience.
Your STC degree means entering a high-demand field – #4 in Best in Creative and Media Jobs by US News & World Report in 2022. This means plenty of choice about what field you enter: from research and development (R&D) or engineering to user experience, marketing, public relations, or media development.
