NMC, MTU to collaborate on Great Lakes research

Michigan Tech and NMC logosMichigan Technological University and Northwestern Michigan College have signed a two-year Memorandum of Understanding formalizing their intent to collaborate on Great Lakes research, with a focus on marine technology, freshwater science and professional development.

The new MOU builds on a history of collaboration between the schools that dates back nearly 30 years. Last year, NMC and MTU signed seven new articulation agreements that allow engineering students to complete their first two years of study at NMC and then transfer to Michigan Tech with junior status.

It also demonstrates Michigan Tech’s continued commitment to the Grand Traverse region. In March 2019, the university announced a three-year MOU designed to explore collaborative opportunities in the Grand Traverse area.
