A new collaboration of five Upper Peninsula manufacturing technology companies, along with the Houghton tech business accelerator MTEC SmartZone and Michigan Technological University, is pitching its expertise to the aerospace and defense industries.
Mechanical engineering faculty from a private Indian university will soon be pursuing their Ph.D.’s from Michigan Technological University.
Four companies from the western Upper Peninsula are among 50 semifinalists in North America’s largest business plan competition, the Accelerate Michigan Innovation Competition.
They grace the covers of magazines. They star in a hit television series. And, they are featured in a popular new game on campus.

Solar farms are a no-brainer in warm and sunny places, but what about in northern climes, where snow is measured in feet, and can cover and even shut down the panels? Michigan Technological University’s Keweenaw Research Center is now part of a two-year study that will help answer that question.
One of the many things I love about the Tech Tour is that it gives me an excuse to visit Michigan’s magnificent Upper Peninsula in October. Oh, and the high tech at Michigan Technological University, too.
Michigan Technological University has a track record of amazing presentations on the Tech Tour. It didn’t disappoint this year either.
Greetings from St. Ignace, the lakeshore town at the north end of the Mackinac Bridge, where I pulled in for the night to write up Friday’s Technology Report before starting my 2013 Fall Tech Tour at Michigan Technological University in Houghton, still five hours distant.
In cooperation with a Mayo Clinic scientist, researchers at Michigan Technological University are taking a giant step toward solving the problem of the unnatural gait of artificial legs, making a bionic foot that could make an amputee’s walk in the park feel, well, like a walk in the park.
Michigan Tech scientists are developing smartphone apps for people to help them collect data — turning them into ‘citizen scientists.’
