Early September marks an annual pilgrimage – when thousands of engineers return to campus and prepare for the new semester. This fall, the Michigan Engineering community welcomes 6,651 undergrads and 5,221 graduate students.
The incoming first-year class hails from 43 states and 38 countries, and were narrowed down from a field of more than 13,0000 applicants. They consist of 27 percent women.
Here is a taste of the excitement, aspirations and anxieties surrounding these new engineers as they begin their Michigan journey.
