Education


Our goal

We will ensure that every Michigan Engineering student benefits from an educational experience that is among the finest in the world.

Academic innovations

We are assessing experiential and online learning, learning analytics and the instructional setting through a series of committees to evaluate:

  • Introducing new pedagogical methods & advanced tools for the delivery of preeminent engineering education
  • Exploring creative ways to empower our students with the critical skills & beyond-the-degree experiences required of the engineers who will invent our future
  • Pioneering new educational models for professional and continuing engineering education with global impact

Navigating a Path

In order to create the type of preeminent engineer the world needs, every student must have a diversity of experiences and skill sets – academic rigor alone no longer cuts it. Michigan Engineering students can follow a variety of paths based on their own interests, like the samples shown below – including as more opportunities are added through new initiatives. Increasing awareness and accessibility to all students, and helping them navigate the options, are critical to success.

Experiential Learning

The new Immersed initiative will help bring all experiential opportunities together, guiding students in practicing their purpose by making options more accessible and navigable.
