Michigan Tech Strategic Plan

Data Revolution and Sensing

MTU will pursue a research and education agenda that defines progress in the 4th industrial revolution.

Thanks to the work of the Data Revolution and Sensing Task Force, Michigan Tech launched the College of Computing in July 2019. The mission of the new college is to advance education and research in computer science and computing-related fields for the benefit of the entire university and its stakeholders. Central to the mission of the new college is the creation of a number of “convergence” academic programs, which are defined as academic programs for which there are shared responsibility and shared credit among two or more academic units including the College of Computing. Similarly, the research activity in the College of Computing has both a core and an interdisciplinary component, which is closely aligned with the Institute of Computing and Cybersystems, a computing-focused research center at Michigan Tech with membership spanning 14 different academic units.
