U-M Dearborn recently announced that it will launch new doctoral degree programs in computer and information science, and electrical and computer engineering. “The new programs were designed in response to industry’s strong demand both for highly qualified engineers in research and development, and for the products of research undertaken by PhD students,” said Tony England, dean, of UM-Dearborn’s College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS). Students will conduct research with faculty involved in innovative translational research and original fundamental research in broad areas of engineering and computer science. In total, CECS will roll out four new doctoral degree programs this fall, including two additional programs in industrial systems engineering, and mechanical sciences and engineering. To support the research, the recently approved $90 million Engineering Lab Building will provide modern research spaces, flexible learning and lab areas, and opportunities for industry research and community outreach when completed.
