"Our mission to create a just, prosperous, and sustainable world is expressed through our entrepreneurial spirit—equal parts curiosity and grit. It infuses everything we do. The lifeblood for an MTU Husky? Battling the North wind, trudging through 200 inches of snow each winter, and staying late in the lab to discover that one, new piece of the puzzle. It's hard work that fuels us." The university has over 125 undergraduate and graduate degree programs, enrolls over 6,800 students, and has a 12:1 student-faculty ratio.
