#MTUGrad – A New Way To Take Home Memories

102851-stripGraduation is the culmination of a lot of hard work and dedication.  As a way of saying “Congratulations” to our graduates, Career Services organized a photo booth to help commemorate the event.  With a green screen and choice of eight different Michigan Tech related backgrounds, students, their family, and their friends were invited to create “one last memory” of their time in Houghton.

Check out the results of the photobooth on Flikr.

Body Language – It Speaks Volumes!

We were pleased to have one of our Alumni share her stories with our students.  Allie Irwin (Engineered Conversations) visited campus to speak with students and faculty about how body language sends messages about listening, importance, honesty, and many other things without us being aware of it.

The summary of her visit is now available for review on:

Steel Mill Tour 17-Mar-2016

Michigan Tech students are  invited on an all-expense paid trip to Chicago to visit ArcelorMittal’s largest U.S. steelmaking facility.

We know the best way to learn about career possibilities is to experience it first-hand. ArcelorMittal is a valued corporate partner with Michigan Tech, and they have a strong tradition of hiring Michigan Tech students. ArcelorMittal is the world’s leading steel and mining company. It is the leading steel supplier to all major markets, including automotive and construction.
