Distance Learning Network

Welcome to the College of Engineering and Computer Science Distance Learning Network web site. Our faculty and staff are dedicated to providing quality education through delivery methods that can accommodate each student's dynamic lifestyle. By utilizing ever-emerging technologies, our students become members of a learning community comprised of on-campus and distance learning students. Students view recorded classroom lectures, participate in group projects, submit assignments, receive feedback from instructors, and participate in threaded discussions.

We invite you to explore our Distance Learning Network web site. Our goal is to support lifelong learners by using the latest technologies to deliver quality graduate engineering and computer science programs anytime, anywhere.

About Our Programs

Programs through the Distance Learning Network may be completed fully online with no campus presence. There is no distinction between degrees earned online and degrees earned on campus.

Students must declare their intention to enroll in either the online or campus program at the time of application, but after that we let you enroll in whatever online or campus-based courses best fit your schedule. The only difference is that declared online students take priority over declared campus students when it's time to register for online courses each semester.

Students in the online programs have electronic access to the UM-Dearborn library.

Graduate Programs

With the exception of Manufacturing Systems Engineering, all CECS graduate degree programs are available online through the Distance Learning Network.

Graduate Certificates

All but two of our graduate certificate programs are available through the Distance Learning Network (DLN). Certificate programs in Electric Energy Technology and Plastic and Composite Materials cannot be completed online.

Undergraduate Online Course Offerings

A select group of CECS undergraduate courses are available online.  Please check the course schedule for semester offerings.
