Enterprise teams allow students to solve real problems for industry sponsors. The Pavlis Institute for Global Technological Leadership and the Senior Design capstone program provide additional leadership training and real-world application of classroom learning. Michigan Tech has more Peace Corps Master’s International programs than any other US university, and our Graduate School continues to grow, especially at the doctoral level. More than 15 percent of our students come from other nations. Our students enjoy on-campus biking and jogging trails and a nearby golf course. Winter brings Nordic skiing on our trails and downhill skiing and snowboarding on our ski hill, and Winter Carnival features massive snow statues. The Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts hosts cultural events, and Huskies athletics include NCAA Division I men’s ice hockey; Division II men’s football; men’s and women’s basketball, tennis, track and field, Nordic skiing, and cross country; and women’s soccer and volleyball.
