College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

Michigan Engineering is a place for a special kind of engineerâ€"someone who wants to make a difference. An undergraduate who built a school for poor residents of the Brazilian Pantanal. A PhD student who is collaborating with the Michigan Kellogg Eye Center to stem the progression of glaucoma. A successful alumnus who is giving back by mentoring students at TechArb, our downtown student venture accelerator. People like you.

Strengthened by 75,000 Engineering alumni and countless friends, a public mission and the University’s across-the-board academic excellenceâ€"100 graduate programs in the US News top tenâ€"we’ve stretched well beyond renowned technical leadership and superb career preparation. We’re also focused on growing a creative community. Examples include:

-- MCubed, a revolutionary research funding program providing immediate startup resources, without grant proposals, to faculty members pursuing novel, high-risk and transformative interdisciplinary projects;
-- LivingArts, the nation’s first engineering/arts living-learning community;
-- The Center for Entrepreneurship, the country’s top engineering entrepreneurship program.

Meanwhile, the College maintains top-ten rankings in nearly every undergraduate and graduate engineering program. The University of Michigan remains the nation’s leading public university by research volume.

Whether you are a prospective faculty member or student, a partner organization, a graduate or a friend of the College, we invite you to join with us to make your impact on the world. For more information, please visit our website at: www.engin.umich.edu/college

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.
