Sponsor a Student Design Project

We need support. You need to get more done.

Connect with talented students, work with Michigan Tech to develop tomorrow’s workforce, and let us move your projects from “to-do” to “done” by sponsoring an Enterprise or Senior Design project.

Enterprise consists of student-driven, multidisciplinary teams that work like companies on real-world client projects. Projects can be short- or long-term, and will be worked on by students of multiple years and majors. Senior Design connects students and industry through open-ended, industrial projects. Senior Design teams typically consist of one major and the students are in their final year at Michigan Tech. In both programs, teams collaborate with clients from industry, communities, and government organizations, and work closely with a faculty advisor.

Want to see what our teams can do? Check out the 2020 Virtual Design Expo to see year-end wrapups for projects ranging from radiofrequency ablation to lunar trenchers to packaging improvements.

Let Us Work For You

You and your company can sponsor projects, support project teams, offer unrestricted support to help program infrastructure, provide gifts-in-kind, and more.

Consider sponsoring Enterprise or Senior Design if you:

  1. Have a low- or medium-priority project that could be tackled by a team of undergraduate students, supervised by Michigan Tech faculty
  2. Could benefit from a fresh perspective
  3. Are motivated to develop tomorrow’s workforce
  4. Want to access the talent, capabilities, and facilities of Michigan Technological University
