Michigan Technological University Summer Youth Programs



SYP enables students to explore careers and develop skills through hands-on laboratory, classroom and field experiences. Conducted by faculty members, graduate students and other specialists, each session explores one of six areas of study: engineering, science and technology, computers, business, environmental studies, or the arts and the human sciences. Evening and weekend activities facilitate student interaction.
