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.
