Congratuations to all students and teachers who participated in this 2016 Professional Development Conference and Student Project Competition held May 11th-14th at the Lansing Convention Center, Lansing Michigan. Over 6000 registered student projects represented 198 different schools and 325 participating instructors from around the state of Michigan at regional and state levels of competition. MITES students and instructors once again demonstrated that the "I" (Industrial) and "T" (Technology) in MITES are alive and well in the State of Michigan. MITES continues to work at bridging the gap between Industry's need of qalified, skilled workers and hard-working, career minded students that would fulfill that need. If you participated in this year's confernece and student project competition and you have an awesome story or photo to share, please post it to our facebook page! We would love to hear from you! While you are there, add your "Like" to the growing number that already have done so. We look forward to seeing you at next year's Professional Development Conference and Student Project Competition which will be held at Saginaw Valley State University.
