Lab Culture

Giving students a chance to experience working in lab begins year one at Michigan Tech. There are two demands: strive for excellence and have a passion for discovery.


To move people, goods, and information, our researchers take mobility research off-road and beyond traffic signs. We excel in unstructured environments in the air, on land, and over water.

Forged in Stone and Fire

On foot and on horse and by canoe. Now, mapping the Keweenaw Fault by boat using modern technologies.
