Meet our students
What will you learn?
You'll be career-ready and have the skills you need to make an impact after graduating. You'll learn, take part in research experiences, work closely with outstanding faculty and get involved in student organizations with hands-on engineering projects and activities.
And, your academic career culminates in the Senior Engineering Design Conference, where you will work as a team to address real-world projects for industry partners, non-profit organizations and alumni.
My academic progress and career plans are influenced by the different opportunities to get involved at WMU that helped me discover the type of engineer I want to be.
