Join us as we celebrate our 75th anniversary! We are excited to commemorate this milestone with year-round events to showcase our innovation and strength. Through these events, we will open the door to our college and celebrate with our alumni, donors, constituents, and community.

As we look to the future, we take a moment to celebrate every accomplishment and prepare to embark on an ambitious plan for the years to come. So, join us at one of our events – or all of them! And let's celebrate together that at UM's College of Engineering, the future looks ever brighter.
