Multidisciplinary Design Program
Corporate employers know that the best engineering recruits are those who have ample experience putting their studies into practice by working on team projects. Michigan Engineering offers students a series of courses in which they can do just that. Project-based courses are offered from freshmen year through graduate school, either within a single discipline/major or as part of the multidisciplinary design program.
Corporate sponsors supply many of the projects for these courses and are asked to assign an engineer/advisor to help guide students as they work. All projects are showcased at the end of Fall and Winter term at the Design Expo, where students present their work to faculty, peers, corporate representatives and the public for a final grade.
Download a complete list of project/design-based courses and get more information about sponsoring student projects from the Multidisciplinary Design Program website.
Scholarships and Fellowships
We welcome corporate partnerships that help support future engineers.
Student Teams, Organizations & Societies
A well-rounded campus experience starts with traditional coursework and labs, but often it’s the student’s extracurricular activities that set their education apart. Active membership on a project-based team or in a student organization or society helps engineers develop social and leadership skills and personal and professional connections that will help launch their careers. For this reason, companies often view student group members as some of the best engineering recruits available.
Corporate sponsorship of student teams, organizations and societies is always welcome, and, in turn, companies gain closer access to students through their meetings and events.
The Corporate Relations Office can help you determine which student groups are best for your company to interact with and can help connect you to the leaders of those groups.
