Engineering Real-World Solutions

Our programs are taught primarily by Ph.D. faculty dedicated to teaching and research. Some courses are taught by experts from local industry.

The ECE Department currently offers three bachelor programs in computer engineering, electrical engineering, and robotics engineering, as well as a dual degree in CE/EE. Please visit the program pages to learn more about requirements.

Undergraduate Courses

Please consult the list of courses offered by the department. Course availability is subject to change. Please contact the department for the most updated list of offerings.

Undergraduate Research In Sustainable Energy (U-RISE)

The new REU site program entitled “Undergraduate Research in Sustainable Energy (U-RISE)” is designed to educate a new generation of engineers and scientists by conducting research in sustainable energy–based electric power systems. Student participants work in teams on research projects with a special emphasis on sustainable energy-related technology and engineering that aim to promote economic efficiency; improve social welfare; reduce energy cost; support plug- and-play of distributed sustainable energy; and improve the capability, adaptability, scalability, resiliency, safety, security, and usability that our nation’s power grid infrastructure can provide.

The program places an emphasis on exposing undergraduates to cutting-edge sustainable energy technology by letting them solve real-world engineering problems together with University of Michigan-Dearborn faculty, graduate students, and local industry mentors. This REU program is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation.

Cooperative Education

Engineering students are eligible to participate in the College of Engineering and Computer Science's Cooperative Education Program. During co-op placements engineering juniors or seniors alternate semesters of full-time classes with semesters of full-time paid engineering work in a company or organization they have applied for. Co-op students gain valuable professional work experience in engineering before they graduate; they earn a salary and also establish contacts useful for later employment.

UM-Dearborn CECS students have found recent co-op placements in the following companies: Acromag, Alcoa Fujikura Ltd., ArvinMeritor, Bosch, Calsonic, CMJ Designs, Comau-Pico, Comerica, Consumers Energy, Denso International, DTE Energy, Detroit Diesel, E-Plan Software, Federal Mogul, Fives Group-Cinetic, Freescale, General Electric, Harman Becker, Hitachi Automotive, Lear Corporation, Lockhead Martin, Marathon Ashland, MichCon, Motorola, NASA, Nokia, Rohm, Siemens, Sirius Radio, SPX, Sumitomo, ST Microelectronics, TK Holdings, Toyota, TRW, TurnerLogistics, United States Army Tank Command, Unisys, US Steel, Vector CanTech, Visteon, X2Y Alternators, Xilinx, and Yazaki North America.
