Throwback Thursday: Giving Thanks for Modern Computers

As we welcome students back from Thanksgiving break and ease back into classes, it’s time to see how far we’ve come and give thanks for flat screens, ergonomic keyboards, high bit-depth color, digital calculators and texts, and ALL the pixels. Our vintage picture shows a land surveying lab of the past at MTU with a student showcasing the latest tech of the time.

Any guesses about what year this image was taken?
