As a top shelf institution, Michigan Tech University’s students are highly desired by hundreds of employers every year. Today students met with perspective employers during the university’s annual spring career fair. Michigan Tech University is well known for their engineering, computer and information sciences, business management and natural resources management departments. And their hard working, knowledgeable students.
“This is my alma mater, so I think I might have some bias. But Tech grads are the best. I’ve had the opportunity to work with graduates from all over the U.S. and Tech grads end up being the best. I think the technical part is one thing. But I think to get through Michigan Tech, and to get a degree is something else. And if you can do that, then you’ve accomplished something.” – Dan Whalen, President, Williams & Works
