Western Michigan University is the only place that encourages students to master the technologies that are disrupting their field of study.
Not only do they become bleeding edge leaders in their field but they also acquire the skills that will give them the technology foundation to land those future jobs that have yet to be invented.
Over the last 10-15 years technology has become a significant disruptor in literally every industry and every facet of our lives. The more people know about and understand technology, the better equipped they will be to deal with the current disruption and predict future disruption.
Having this technology knowledge will allow them to be on the bleeding edge of plotting the course of future disruption. In this big idea all academic programs at WMU acknowledge that technology is the great disruptor and are making technology disruption a central focus of the student's learning experience.
WMU would be creating future leaders in every field.
