UDM offers new Mexican Scholars Program for graduate engineers

University of Detroit Mercy has recently added the Mexican Scholars Program as an option for graduate engineers. The program is offered in partnership with Magna Powertrain (MPT), which is a premier supplier for the global automotive industry with full capabilities in powertrain design, development, testing and manufacturing. The Magna-UDM Mexican Scholars Program is designed to educate and provide experience for graduate engineers to work as leaders of MPT’s global engineering and manufacturing centers in Mexico. During the program, students will complete their master’s degrees in engineering at UDM and have a one-year paid internship at Magna’s engineering center in Troy, Mich. After this, they will be required to work for MPT’s operations in Mexico for two years.

The program provides strong financial support for its students. In addition to the salary paid for the internship work, a scholarship will support 75 percent of the tuition for the completion of the master’s degree.

Requirements for participating in the program include an official transcript showing a bachelor’s degree in either Electrical or Mechanical Engineering, minimum GPA of 3.25, letter stating the reasons to be admitted to the program, resume, official TOEFL score of at least 600 and a completed UDM graduate application.
