The Enterprise Program at Michigan Tech
Enterprises are student-led companies embracing rich experiences in engineering design, team building, project management, and end-to-end original product development. Just as in Senior Design, Enterprise teams work under the direction of a faculty advisor.
The program gives teams of students from varied disciplines the opportunity to work for several semesters in a business-like setting to solve real-world engineering problems supplied by industry partners. There are currently 24 different enterprise teams at Michigan Tech.
Sponsors get the opportunity to achieve real solutions through a university research project and are able to make professional connections with these students for possible hiring. Students get to pick the enterprise team that matches their interests, so many are self motivated leaders that are great at working in team environments.
Students get the opportunity to make connections with industry and gain valuable experience to kick start their careers. Most Michigan Tech departments offer enterprise as an alternative capstone project to the senior design program which allows the student to take direction in their specific interests.
