Program Description


The Engineering Pathway: Mechanical/Industrial program enables students to complete the courses in the first two and half years of the Bachelor of Science program in Mechanical/Industrial Engineering at University of Michigan - Dearborn. Students take physics, math, chemistry, general education, and program specific courses required by the engineering program. Upon successful completion of the program, students can transfer to University of Michigan - Dearborn to complete their final years of engineering. The HFC articulation agreement with University of Michigan - Dearborn makes the transfer process easier. NOTE: Students should meet with the Engineering Faculty Advisor for assistance with registering for the correct series of courses.

Program Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this program, students should be able to:

  1. Describe the introductory concepts of physical sciences (chemistry and physics).
  2. Demonstrate the ability to work in teams to solve engineering and math problems.
  3. Define the roles of mechanical /industrial engineers and decide his/her pathway.
Career Opportunities

After completion of this program and transfer to and completion of the a 4-year institution Bachelor of Science degree, students can specialize in fields such as Mechanical, Industrial, Systems or Manufacturing Engineering.
