Other Degrees, Options and Certificates

Cooperative Engineering Education

The Cooperative Engineering Education certificate may be earned by completing a minimum of three semesters of enrollment in EGR 393, which includes full-time employment in a position in industry that has been approved by the College. Visit Spartan Engineering / The Center website for more information.

Information Technology Specialization

Available to students with majors in the Colleges of Engineering, Communication Arts and Sciences, or Eli Broad College of Business students, the specialization is designed to provide students with a broad, multidisciplinary understanding of the role and basic mechanics of information technology in contemporary society. Students will develop core competencies in their primary area of study and will broaden their horizons as they interact with others from different academic backgrounds. Students completing the specialization will be well prepared for employment in technology-oriented environments and will understand the evolving impact of information technology on society. More information and an application for the specialization may be found here: Information Technology Minor

Specialization in Game Design and Development

The Specialization in Game Design and Development brings together students from Computer Science, Studio Art, Telecommunication and Information Studies and Media to learn the technology, the design fundamentals, the development, the history, the social impact and the business of digital games. More information can be found here: Minor in Game Design and Development.

Information and Communication Technology for Development Specialization

This specialization focuses on the role of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in fostering economic, social, and environmental change in developing countries.  Students in this program will gain a theoretical and practical background in the challenges and opportunities for deploying ICT infrastructure to enhance development.  The program culminates in a field-based experience where students will implement an innovative ICT project in a developing country as part of an education abroad program, or will execute a project in a rural region or an underprivileged urban region of the United States. More information can be found here: Minor in Information and Communication Technology for Development
