Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Other Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros The program at the University of Michigan is very collaborative. Students like working together to learn and solve problems. We have a diverse range of research topics. Cons Most of the faculty are concerned more with the research and don't put as much effort into the classes. Some classes could be taught beter.

Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2014

Coming from a smaller undergraduate, making the transition to a larger institution has had its toll on me. Making friends in this larger pond is harder, especially when students are in very distinct academic groups (i.e. MS vs PhD students). One thing the math department can improve on is the inclusion of the MS students, myself being one, since it often is portrayed that MS students are invisible if they exist at all. The faculty are very friendly, however, and are more than helpful outside of the classroom. They encourage asking questions which is healthy for any student.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

Social Work is a growing field, with more applicants and enrollments this year than any before. U-M offers a large faculty of diverse backgrounds and concentrations ready to support you at every step in your education. The program is intense, but it's short and you can start your new career in just a year and a half. In lieu of a dissertation, students work in their chosen field most of the time they are attending school. They get experience, networking, and a better education for their ability to be hands-on in what they're studying.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

U of M makes a concerted effort to integrate the use of science and technology with the more "tradition" curriculum found in Library and Information Science programs.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

As a first year grad student, I am still fairly new to the university. From what I've experienced so far, the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor is a very well known institute for it's quality of study and financial support. It attracts students from all over the states and world. The university has a very diverse and large group of faculty that lends academic support. The university is centrally located and has an uncomplicated bus system which makes it easy to get to from all areas of Ann Arbor.

Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2013

The Mechanical Engineering graduate program at the University of Michigan provides a hands-on experience to the students. There are plenty of opportunities available to experiment with one's ideas, with encouragement and support (professionally and personally) extended by the professors at all times. The projects as part of courses are extensive and challenging, making the student learn through the process. The libraries are accessible 24 hours and the added facilities such as Inter Library Loans make it easier for the students to attain required text books. The library also has several hundreds of computers, all loaded with the most updated software and other supportive applications that a student may require. The academic environment is challenging and fun to be in, and it build in the student a passion to excel pushing his/her limits. The major classrooms use video recording technology, which enables the student to follow the lectures after the class hours, to refresh his.her memory, this comes in handy especially before the exams. The labs are very well equipped with the latest technologies, which makes the students aware of the recent advancements in their respective fields. The career center helps the students greatly in finding internships and full time jobs. As a matter of fact, it helped me land an internship in a leading company for this Summer. Overall, it has been a wonderful experience academically and personally. I have one more semester to finish my master's program, and I believe the graduate education at University of Michigan is far beyond regular standards.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2013

Since this program is constantly changing, some services and resources don't feel like they're at their best. However, because this program is constantly changing, I can advocate and expect for better. Additionally, I have truly enjoyed studying a subject that I connect with and nearly all of my colleagues are fantastic and top of the line.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

The University of Michigan boasts the best School of Social Work in the country. However, the amount of student loans compared the what i will probably be making after i graduate can feel very discouraging at times.

Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2015

The University of Michigan has one of the leading graduate programs for architecture in the country. The resources and level of education provided is unmatched, but the price of attendance (especially out-of-state) is steep.
