Community partners

The College of Engineering Educational Outreach And Community Engagement Office facilitates collaboration with the college's community and partners, including K-12 schools, other universities, nonprofit organizations, government entities and businesses. The office achieves its goals through the following:

Curricular engagement

Engineering faculty, students and community partners will engage in the exchange of teaching, learning and scholarship. Their interactions will address a community-identified need that, in return, will enrich student and faculty civic and academic learning, enhance community well-being and strengthen the scholarship of the college. The college takes great effort to incorporate a community focus in courses like the capstone design course.

Community engagement

Our students, alumni, faculty and staff are passionate about Detroit and the surrounding community. The college has successfully developed and managed numerous programs, events and initiatives to serve and improve the community. Each year, the office facilitates college participation in Race for the Cure, American Red Cross blood drives and other volunteer opportunities.

K-12 outreach efforts

Engineering K-12 outreach focuses on the use of the college’s resources in order to provide a foundation for future engineers. Partnerships focus on collaborative interactions with community partners for the exchange, exploration and application of knowledge, information and resources. Some major initiatives in this area are the engineering and computer summer camps, Future Society of Women Engineers events, the Detroit Area Pre-College Engineering Program and the high school dual enrollment program.
