You'll take away a confidence that that you can survive and thrive in the industrial world once you leave the University. As an industry engineer for over 20 years, I've "been there, done that," and I'm going to show you how you can do it, too. I'm going to show you how to communicate with peers, bosses and customers and how to apply your engineering technical skills to real life situations.
My favorite part about teaching students at University of Detroit Mercy is the camaraderie between you. I find that there's such a great bond between my students that they help each other learn, and that helps me to teach.
There are a couple of big reasons you should come to UDM for engineering. First is the relatively small size, which really allows you to become part of anything you want. If you want to be involved in an activity, you can be.
The second thing is personal attention from your professors and instructors. I know all my students by name. I'll learn your name and we'll work together. If you're struggling, I'll help you. If you're succeeding, we'll build on that success. I think that personal touch and the small size are real advantages for University of Detroit Mercy students.
Here at UDM, the emphasis is on "you." Teaching and students come first. Faculty research certainly is important, but that takes back seat to the students themselves.
"Great things" means a solid education that will get you off to a great start and carry you through your career for many, many years to come. Our co-op program also sets you up for gaining experience that you may not get at other universities. It's about you, and we do want great things for every one of our students, including you.
