Closing the gap between academics and industry is a top priority of the College of Engineering. Partnerships with business leaders in the Wayne State community will improve learning outcomes, maximize the value of research, strengthen commercial impact and provide top-level engineering prospects with relevant industrial skills.

One of the best ways employers can integrate with the College of Engineering is by hosting or participating in on-campus events. Employers can work with the Engineering Career Resource Center staff to share opportunities, plan workshops, recruit talent and schedule information sessions.

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 curricular engagement, community engagement and K-12 outreach efforts.
