Hands-on learning and lifelong learning have always been the hallmarks of Michigan Tech.
One alumnus from the class of 1964 attributes his success in large part to the "training and rigor" of a Michigan Tech education. "I had a wonderful education," he says. "I had a head start. . . . Nobody was better prepared to understand and solve problems than we were." The same holds true today.
Tech alumni are uniformly loyal. Tech faculty continue to mentor and lead. Tech students have the advantage of an education that stresses inquiry and innovation.
Alumni, faculty, and students are represented in this issue of the Michigan Tech Magazine.
Bolivian children learn to use cameras, guided by Tech faculty and students who are learning the realities of our world. An alumnus pursues the ancient art of winemaking, gives it the Tech twist, and pays it forward. Students and faculty explore the mechanics and poetry of voice and motion. And many students enroll or remain at Tech for the graduate school experience, extending the boundaries of knowledge while preparing for academe or industry.
The idea is to never stop learning and continue exercising our brains–and maybe staying a bit younger–like when we were at Tech, creating the future.
