Michigan Technological University is a public research institution based in Houghton, MI. It provides a specialized education in the STEM sciences. A majority of students choose to study engineering, but other popular areas of study include biology, business, sound design, and computer science. MTU runs its own golf course and ski and snowboard hill.
Michigan Tech is a quality school in an amazing location. Academic opportunities here are numerous and beneficial if you are independently motivated. The opportunity to explore the Keweenaw Peninsula and its natural and archaeological beauty is also a major perk.

michigan tech provides a top education along with an atmosphere where students thrive. as a tech student almost everyone is an average of 500 miles away from home and therefore we form a very close community with the university and with the keweenaw community in general. the size of the school allows for a learning environment filled with hands-on experience, while still having the knowledge, skill and reputation to have career fairs with over 300 companies in attendance hoping to hire some of our 5600 students, 96% of which will graduate with a job in their field or go into a graduate program.
