MTU will pursue a research and education agenda that defines progress in the 4th industrial revolution.
The Advanced Materials and Manufacturing team will establish Michigan Tech as a global leader in research and education associated with advanced materials and manufacturing for a global circular economy. The project consists of two phases. In the first phase, the team will look to build partnerships and expertise, which will serve as a catalyst to develop a strategy for the initiative. In the second phase, the team will put the plan into action. This plan will include the development of education programs (e.g. enterprise teams, minors, graduate certificates) and a strong research footprint (labs, faculty working groups).
