Michigan Technological University | USA
Michigan Technological University was founded in 1885 in response to the first mining boom in the U.S. — the clamor for Michigan's copper, which preceded the California Gold Rush by several years. At its outset, the college trained mining and metallurgical engineers. Today, Michigan Technological University offers certificates, associate, bachelors, masters, and doctoral degrees in arts, humanities, and social sciences; business and economics; computing; engineering, forestry and environmental science, sciences; and technology. Michigan Technological University undergraduates benefit from an education that emphasizes study across disciplines, team learning, and research. Graduate students receive intensive, advanced instruction and the opportunity to pursue research in a wide range of academic programs. Overall, the institution has gained worldwide attention for innovative education; our faculty members strive to be mentors; the academic programs stress learning hand in hand with application, and students learn to inquire and discover knowledge. Michigan Technological University's International Programs and Services (IPS) division facilitate the development, promotion, coordination and execution of quality international programs and services at Michigan Technological University.
