Established in 1959, the University of Michigan-Dearborn is one of the three campuses governed by the Board of Regents of the University of Michigan. The University of Michigan-Dearborn is a selective institution noted for its strong academic programs; small, faculty-taught classes; modern facilities; paid professional co-operative education placements; and successful alumni.

The University of Michigan-Dearborn campus is an attractive 200-acre green haven located in the heart of the state of Michigan's industrial, research, development,entrepreneurial, and service sectors. University of Michigan-Dearborn students draw upon the resources of a large multi-university, while benefiting from the social and educational advantages of attending a campus of moderate size.

Graduate Master's Programs
The College of Engineering and Computer Science offers eleven different graduate master's programs. Our graduate programs focus on action learning to provide students with the highly demanded practical skills and knowledge needed to succeed in today's competitive, global environment. The faculties are dedicated to both a superior teaching effort and the pursuit of excellence through distinguished, applied research in their chosen fields. As another advantage, our faculty co-create the curriculums of our graduate programs with the industrial and technical communities that surround our centrally located campus.

To meet the need for innovation in higher education, several of our graduate master's programs and individual course offerings are now offered via the University of Michigan-Dearborn Distance Learning Network. All online courses encompass the same level of excellence and rigor to that of traditional onsite courses. Furthermore, it provides the convenience and flexibility that students demand to better coordinate their academic goals between their professional and personal lives.

Ph.D. Programs
The College of Engineering and Computer Science offers Ph.D. programs in Automotive Systems Engineering and Information Systems Engineering. Both programs are designed to meet the need of engineers who intend to follow a career of research and technical specialists, and serve as technical leaders, innovators and research mentors. Both are 50 credit hour post-master's programs and can be pursued either on a full-time or a part-time basis. The curriculum consists of 24 credit hours of course work and 26 credit hours of dissertation involving original research of archival quality.

The Ph.D. classes are held in the evenings (6 to 9 PM) for the convenience of working engineers. Both programs allow students to follow an interdisciplinary curriculum, yet specialize in a specific area of technology through a careful selection of specialization courses and dissertation topic. The areas of specialization in Automotive Systems Engineering include (1) Materials and Materials Processing, (2) Energy Systems, Powertrains, Combustion and Thermal Management, (3) Dynamics, Controls and Electronics, (4) Vehicle Design, Manufacturing and Systems Integration, and (5) Informatics and Communication. The areas of specialization in Information Systems Engineering include (1) Information Management and Knowledge Engineering, (2) Computer Networks and Advanced Computer Architecture, (3) Intelligent Systems, (4) Graphics and Visualization, and (5) Supply Chain Modeling, Systems Support, and Security.
