In compliance with Governor Whitmer's Executive Order 2020-21, "Stay Home, Stay Safe," Michigan Technological University's campus has been effectively shut down to essential personnel only. The Center for Technology & Training has been affected by this order, and in response CTT staff will be working remotely until the end of the Governor's executive order. Until at least April 14, 2020, anyone calling will need to leave a voicemail. We will return calls as soon as possible. Contact us via email at ctt@mtu.edu.
