About MTU

Nestled in the far north of the Great Lakes State, Michigan Tech gets plenty of snow each year. As a result, student life at MTU involves plenty of winter sports, including snowboarding, hockey and broomball. The annual Winter Carnival features some of the most impressive snow statues you’ve ever seen, in addition to plenty of outdoor games and activities.

Despite being an engineering school, Tech does not limit its academics to science. Engineering and computing are its main focus, but Michigan Tech also offers majors in the arts, humanities and social science, as well as environmental science and forestry.

Financial aid is abundant at Michigan Tech. The school participates in government financial aid programs, and offers a variety of scholarships to both in-state and out-of-state students who qualify. One of these opportunities is the Department of Defense’s SMART Scholarship, which pays full tuition, fees and expenses to outstanding students in the sciences.

MTU’s admissions require standardized test scores and high school transcripts from all applicants. Specific degree programs, such as those in the Visual and Performing Arts Department, may have additional admissions requirements.

Michigan Tech is great. The location alone drew me to the school. It is one of the snowiest cities in America and in the beautiful Keweenaw Peninsula. I visited campus during the summer and loved it. My tour of campus was very informative and in depth, and my guide happened to graduate from my high school! Tour accommodations were very generous, I was given VIP passes to everything a student can use for free: such as the golf course, sports events, and the ski area (not open in the summer of course). The surrounding area is very quaint, the sister cities of Houghton and Hancock are small but established. There is also plenty of history in the area, as the area was a huge exporter of copper. When I was there I visited the mineral museum and learned about the history of mining and got to see rocks and minerals that boggled my mind. A very nice school, not too big, not too small.
