Experiential Learning

At Michigan Engineering, our students are driven by a commitment to serve the common good through solutions that push the bounds of what is possible. We offer two linked resources to support experiential learning.  The Michigan Engineering Immersed website provides program and contact information for a wide range of experiences.  Michigan Engineering Spire is a platform we’ve created for students to develop important professional skills (leadership, teamwork, communication, etc.) through specific experiential learning opportunities.  Explore both below!

Immersed

Michigan Engineering Immersed, a collection of carefully-designed experiential learning opportunities, serves to reinforce this commitment based on the belief that innovation is born out of exploration.
