Canceled: Michigan Engineering Department Visits

Thank you for your interest in the University of Michigan College of Engineering. According to state and local authorities, there are now confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Michigan.

In light of this development, the University has recommended that we cancel upcoming large gatherings. Therefore, we are officially canceling our in-person event for graduate student visits scheduled for March 12-14 and March 19-21, 2020.

We are sorry for the late notification and realize the inconvenience you likely face.  We will handle the impact of canceling your visit (flight, hotel, cancellation fees) with no charge to you. If you have a special circumstance that we should be aware of, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

We remain very excited to have you join us at Michigan Engineering as a graduate student. We are working with the Departments to provide a virtual visit and more information about the University and the Ann Arbor community.

Invited Department Visits

Our departments invite selected students for an in-depth visit to campus — expenses paid — to meet with faculty in their area of interest each February or March.

These exclusive weekend visits give you a realistic perspective on what your graduate student career at Michigan will look like.
