Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2017

University of Michigan - Dearborn offers great online and in class programs that are easy to manage while also maintaining a full time career. The professors are very knowledgeable and the smaller campus means their more accessible. Going part time, I do not really engage in the social aspect of the school.

Cost of tuition is very high, Cost of living is very expensive. Job opportunities are very moderate. Course work is up to the mark and research opportunities are available for only under some professors. Financial Aid is very very low.

Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

University of Michigan-Dearborn, is one of the few universities that is known for its graduate degree program in Automotive Systems Engineering. The program is an interdisciplinary program. The program is built in a way that it meets the current industry requirements. The program emphasizes on practical training, its more like " you learn when you do it". The program offers many research areas that a student can work on and also various co-op programs as well. The competition in this program is very high, students who are passionate about cars opt for this program, so one will be competing with the best of the best. The faculty for this program are very highly qualified and experienced and help students in every way hat is possible.

Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: I am currently pursuing my graduate degree in Mechanical Engineering while working full time at Ford Motor Company. The University is very understanding of students with full time employment and offer night classes one night a week. I have never had a scheduling conflict and have been able to take every class I've wanted/needed to due to this flexible schedule. Most professors are also very understanding and helpful in making up class time if I have to miss class due to work responsibilities. This flexibility makes UMD a great school for a part time masters. The flexibility in class options is also a really opportunistic pro of the degree as I can specifically tailor my course plan towards my career. I have already seen how the classes I have taken at UMD have advanced my understanding of projects I'm working on at Ford. Cons: The majority of the students in the ME graduate major are full time students; it's harder to make friends/professional relationships in the classroom and some professors aren't as understanding if you have to miss class due to work conflicts. Overall, the pros outweigh the cons, and I am very happy with my choice in graduate schools. I'm trying to continuously take classes to complete my degree as quickly as possible to advance my career at Ford Motor Company. To do this, however, I need a little extra monetary help. This scholarship, if awarded during the 3rd quarter of 2015, would be the perfect help to achieve my goals.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

For a commuter school which is significantly smaller than it's parent campus in Ann Arbor, the University of Michigan - Dearborn provides an excellent business education at tuition rates which are lower than the other big universities in Michigan. The College of Business is taught by full-time professors and adjunct faculty, a majority of whom still work in the field that they teach, not teaching assistants. As a result, students are provided with a high-quality education that connects classroom topics to the real world through the first-hand experiences of the people teaching the classes. The College of Business also has good connections with local businesses, including the Big 3 Automakers and Big 4 Accounting firms, along with a great internship program. The program helps students find professional internships, most of which are competitively paid, and provides career guidance. These services help a large majority of the students graduate with good job prospects, with some students even receiving job offers prior to graduation. All of the benefits of the University of Michigan - Dearborn College of Business are made even better when one considers that upon completion of their studies, they receive a University of Michigan Degree and become part of the Michigan Alumni Family, a network which will further help them in the future.

Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

The graduate program at UofM-Dearborn is a very convenient program. They offer plenty of classroom courses as well as online courses. It fits well into my schedule since I am going to school part-time. My biggest issue with this university is the lack of quality teachers (similar to undergraduate). The teachers clearly weren't hired for their ability to properly educate their students..
