Michigan Technological University partnered with the Detroit Regional Chamber, Michigan Tech Career Services, and MICHauto to create a unique opportunity for students interested in careers in the automotive industry.
Over 80 Michigan Tech students applied, but only 22 were selected to participate in this event. These students joined with other students to learn about careers in the future of Mobility at the MICHauto Summit. During the summit, industry leaders provided career advice and a vision for the future of careers in the automotive industry. Students also had an opportunity to network with industry representatives to discuss career opportunities. Careers in mobility are much more than automotive!
In addition to showcasing careers, the event was designed to help students learn about the city of Detroit itself, from a history, culture, and entertainment standpoint. This included attending the Detroit Pistons game, taking a walking tour of downtown landmarks led by the Detroit Experience Factory, and seeing the PlanetM Landing Zone.
