Engineering Learning Center

Our Mission

The  mission of the Engineering Learning Center (ELC) is to support the academic success of the College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS) students in an open, inclusive, and student-focused environment that fosters students' ownership of their learning journey, in close partnership with faculty, staff, students, alumni as well as university and industry partners.

Our Approach

The ELC supports its mission through a holistic approach to learning and success that includes a variety of services and programs such as free tutoring, boot-camps, exam preparation, success coaching, and guided study sessions.  ELC services are tailored to engineering and computer science students, programs, and courses and cover major courses across the four CECS departments. The ELC services and programs are provided in collaboration with faculty, staff, students, alumni, and industry partners. The center complements and coordinates with existing UM-Dearborn academic success resources such as the Office of Academic Success, Experience+, Talent Gateway, peer learning centers (math, science, and writing), and the Mardigian Library.

We welcome your ideas!  If there’s something you think would add to your academic success in CECS, please email your ideas to Jennifer Makas, Assistant Director Engineering Learning Center, at jmakas@umich.edu
