Research and Real-World Projects

Our students and faculty don’t envision a better future – they build it!
At many universities, you don't conduct research until you're in graduate school, but at Detroit Mercy you begin as an undergraduate, as early as your freshman year. Whether you’re an undergraduate or graduate student, you'll work with faculty experts who care about your success and understand that engineering is not just about books, but about doing. You could enhance someone’s life by solving a real-world problem while learning at the same time. During your senior year at Detroit Mercy, you'll work on a real-world project known as a capstone project.

I'm very surprised by how I have been able to produce such sufficient research at 19-years-old. I never thought I'd get to the point of having such a contribution to science at a young age.

Professional Co-op

Our cooperative education program is the third oldest co-op in the country and integrates career development skills and experiences into your engineering education. You’ll apply engineering and career competencies with unique mentorships in professional settings to gain relevant cultural awareness within an industry while earning a competitive salary. Learn more about our co-op.

The co-op made my classes more concrete. Being able to see my design come to life made engineering more real.

Jesuit and Mercy Foundation

Detroit Mercy’s Jesuit and Mercy education provides you the foundation you need in critical thinking, communication and ethical decision making. You’ll graduate with the ability to comprehend the human impact of work, which companies are hungry for in today’s graduates.

My classes have given me the opportunity to showcase what I have learned in the classroom and share it with people in the community. My experience has changed me because when I start new projects for my computer science classes, I think of programs I can create that will help the community. These values are instilled in almost everything I do. Detroit Mercy has taught me to think not of myself, but of ways to help those around me.

—Gillian Toller, Computer Science senior


As a student, you can take advantage of opportunities and our corporate partnerships which prepare you for a successful career when you graduate. Or you may make friends and start networking with your peers now, by joining a student club.

I believe that Detroit Mercy encourages students to pursue interests outside of their field to create well-rounded professionals.
