Michigan Tech students partner with Caterpillar to innovate for the future

Learn how students are applying their education to solve customer challenges.

Caterpillar recruits engineers at many universities around the world, including Michigan Technological University in Houghton, Mich. As part of their partnership, Caterpillar engineers partner with Michigan Tech students to solve customer challenges. Over the years, students have worked on three projects that provided Caterpillar engineers with innovative concepts they could further build upon.

This year Caterpillar sponsored a Senior Capstone Design project. Michigan Tech students applied their education to design a pipelayer concept that could provide more options to customers.
