Biography and Education
Hi, my name is Jennifer Makas and I've been an Academic Advisor in CECS since 2007, now as Student Success Coordinator and am also on the START team. My undergraduate degree is in Civil Engineering and I earned an M.S.E. in Industrial and Systems Engineering at UM-Dearborn in 2016. I am the Staff Advisor for SWE, AOE, and the Orthodox Christian Fellowship on campus and am a alumni member of APM. Outside of work, I enjoy cooking, traveling, sewing and knitting, and Irish Ceili dancing with my eldest daughter. I have a wonderful husband and 4 children, two of whom are UM-Dearborn alumni.
