Innovation and Commercialization

Engage Students

The Michigan Technological University Industry Relations Team helps connect the strategic interests of your organization to the appropriate campus programs and constituents by assisting you in hiring an intern, co-op, or graduate, sponsoring an Enterprise or Senior Design project, or collaborating to find the next generation of problem-solvers through scholarships or pre-college outreach. When you work with us, you'll establish your company brand and culture in the minds and hearts of our students, allowing you to maximize your recruiting results by helping our students and alumni understand where they fit in your culture and understand the value they can add to your organization.
