People require mobility, because it empowers them to conquer the distance that separates their homes from the locations where they study, work, shop, seek medical treatment, do business, or visit friends. In the meanwhile, Wayne State University is demonstrating a commitment to improve quality of life for individuals and communities through excellence in mobility-related research, teaching, and service. This certificate program is the first of its kind in Michigan, focusing on mechanisms known as mobility, which is the ability to meet the needs of society to move freely, gain access, communicate, commute, and establish connectivity with the advanced mobility technologies today or in the future.
Research from College of Engineering faculty and input from industry partners provide a framework for the program that provides project-based training using mobility principles and techniques to solve real-world challenges for a wide range of domains.
