You will learn about the engineering majors offered at Michigan, and the types of career paths available as an engineer. You will identify your own interests and goals, and discover the broader opportunities available through academic minors and co-curricular opportunities that align with your passions. And, you will actively incorporate this information into a plan for your educational experience in Michigan Engineering.
