At Michigan Tech there are no barriers to innovation. As a technological university with 85% of its faculty and students working in STEM fields we have been able to break down the traditional boundaries between electrical engineering, computer science, and information technology. Our culture is as unique as our surroundings. The geographical and cultural factors of the Copper County create a sense of community with deep historical roots. We have learned from our predecessors that collaboration is not only essential for survival, it allows us to thrive.
