Fourth Industrial Revolution Curriculum Revision Fund
To prepare our students to compete for jobs in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, we must equip them with the knowledge and skills in the new digital mechanical engineering space.
The Fourth Industrial Revolution is characterized by billions of people connected by mobile devices reflecting exponential growing rate of change. Revolution leads to the transformation of entire systems, such as the convergence of computer technologies, the internet of and with things, and the generation of millions and millions of data.
Data are the new natural resources for engineers, as have been raw materials.
We want to keep our hands on experiential education reputation. This now includes hands on relative to digital competency.
In response to the Fourth Industrial Revolution our curriculum will include modules related to big data analysis. We will teach machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence in the solution of engineering design problems.
ME-EM Building for the Future Phase II Campaign: Cash Donations
The 2020-2021 academic year has been an unprecedented year. As COVID-19 continues to spread, the future has never felt so unpredictable, but while there is a lot of uncertainty, the university and the ME-EM faculty and staff have been preparing to quickly adapt to the changing realities.
The department has many needs that are not covered by the University and State funding, so your donations are vitally important to help meet these needs and to enhance the academic and research programs we provide for our undergraduate and graduate students.
Faculty Development Fund
To attract top new faculty to the ME-EM Department, we must provide them with a highly competitive hiring package so they can reach their goals and be successful.
Your gift will enable us to attract and hire exceptional new faculty—those who love to teach and conduct state-of-the-art research. With competitive hiring funds, our new faculty can become leaders in their field, attract the best graduate students, and inspire our undergraduate students—while keeping tuition affordable.
Building for the Future Phase II: Endowment Opportunities
Nearly every industry depends upon mechanical engineers. They are indispensable in every facet of the engineering profession as well as in finance, law, and medicine. That's why it is imperative that Michigan Tech students are taught by quality faculty and exposed to first-class equipment and facilities.
