Tyler Walker Attends Engineering Scholars Program at Michigan Tech
Tyler Walker, a soon-to-be high school Junior of Standish participated in the Engineering Scholars Program (ESP) on the campus of Michigan Technological University this July.
ESP is a weeklong investigation of careers in areas such as mechanical, computer, environmental, electrical, chemical, biomedical, civil, geological, and materials engineering, as well as related disciplines.
ESP is a highly competitive scholarship program via a formal rigorous application and acceptance process that provides a chance for traditionally underrepresented high school freshmen, sophomores, and juniors the opportunity to investigate careers in engineering and science.
The students also get to experience a mini-version of college life, living in a full-service residence hall, eating in the dining hall, and enjoying the college town atmosphere and surrounding Keweenaw area.
Michigan Technological University is a leading public research university developing new technologies and preparing students to create the future for a prosperous and sustainable world. Michigan Tech offers more than 130 undergraduate and graduate degree programs in engineering; forest resources; computing; technology; business; economics; natural, physical and environmental sciences; arts; humanities; and social sciences.
