MTU has received more than 8,800 applications for fall 2022 — up 5% from last year, and 30% from the former all-time high set in 2019. Applications from women have increased nearly 66% in that time. Those from underrepresented minority groups have doubled.

Applications from students in Arizona, California and Texas have tripled since 2015.
