About TalentBridge

MTEC’s TalentBridge program was designed to support existing companies seeking to increase their geographic reach, engage in a high-quality pipeline of #crazysmart students and graduates at Michigan Technological University, leverage university reach opportunities, and live in a safe, thriving community.

University Research

MTEC works collaboratively with Michigan Tech’s Industry Relations Team. Research at Michigan Tech brings faculty, graduate and undergraduate students, community, government, and industrial partners together to create the future. Home to 18 research centers and institutes, interdisciplinary work at Michigan Tech is occurring in sectors such as mobility and autonomy, space, data and sensing, energy, life sciences, and health, and cybersecurity.
