The overarching goal of the Graduate Data Science Certificate Program is to train a cadre of skillful data scientists with significant multidisciplinary knowledge, broad analytical skills and agile technological abilities. The program provides interactive data-centered training and involves 9 credits of courses and 3 credits of experiential training that require a written report on data analytics.
The Graduate Certificate in Computational Discovery and Engineering (CDE) trains participants to conduct computationally intensive research, and prepares them to function effectively in interdisciplinary research and product development settings that employ high-performance computing. CDE is now a fundamental tool in scientific research and modern design and manufacturing practices.
The Ph.D. in Scientific Computing program is intended for students who will make extensive use of large-scale computation, computational methods, or algorithms for advanced computer architectures in their doctoral studies. A firm knowledge of the scientific discipline is essential. This is not a stand-alone degree; it is a joint degree program. Students must be accepted into the PhD program of a home department.
If you are interested in entrepreneurship, you can complement your degree to make you a more competitive and marketable employee (in industry or academia) or a more knowledgeable founder. The Center for Entrepreneurship’s courses offer hands-on experiential training, designed and taught by U-M STEM graduates and technical founders.
Through the Science, Technology, and Public Policy (STPP) Graduate Certificate Program, students explore the politics and policy of science and technology. The program provides students with tools to analyze complex science and technology policy issues.
The Fellows Program at U-M Tech Transfer is for graduate students who are interested in learning about the commercialization process and intellectual property. Fellows work part-time to assist Tech Transfer licensing specialists to assess the technical and market potential of new U-M inventions.
The dual degree confers a Master of Science (MS) degree from the School of Natural Resources (SNRE) and a Master of Science in Engineering (MSE) from the College of Engineering. Students must be admitted by both units (SNRE, ChE) and meet the admission standards of both units.
New applicants must submit an application to both the Department of Chemical Engineering (program code 00115, firstname.lastname@example.org) and the School of Natural Resources & Environment (email@example.com).
Implementation of sustainable engineering practices in industry has created a demand for engineers with both rigorous disciplinary skills and knowledge of environmental regulations, policies and practices. The Concentrations in Environmental Sustainability, or ConsEnSus, program is designed to prepare students to meet this demand by providing the opportunity to pursue an MSE degree in a traditional engineering discipline coupled with advanced study in issues of environmental sustainability. The concentration comprises a coherent sequence of courses designed to enhance general sustainability literacy and prepare students to integrate sustainable engineering principles into professional practice.
Are you ready to lead? The Tauber Institute for Global Operations specializes in helping talented engineers learn business and management skills so that they are ready to take on high-level positions and responsibilities early in their careers. Tauber students are guaranteed an internship, often working with executives and industry leaders.
The Michigan Nanotechnology Institute in Medicine and Biological Sciences (MNIMBS) works on development of therapeutics with a particle size small enough to overcome the barriers to deliver drugs, genetic materials and vaccines. The interaction of nanoscale analytical science, synthetic materials science and engineering with biological systems provides great opportunities for the biomedical sciences. Through collaborative research projects, MNIMBS professors co-mentor students to offer a truly multidisciplinary experience.
