Proud History

When he arrived in 1879 to teach shipbuilding, Mortimer E. Cooley, an 1878 Naval Academy graduate, was one of just four professors of engineering at U-M.

The Michigan Men's Rowing Team, a club varsity sport at U-M, is an athletic team that attracts many engineering students. Close to 95% of the students on the team never rowed before college, and around 50% of the total team is made up of engineers. While it might seem out of place for engineering students to be so highly represented on the team, they see it as a perfect fit.
