Campus

Location

University of Michigan is a 45 minute drive from Detroit, the main city of Michigan. Apart from the University, Ann Arbor is pretty boring but fortunately Detroit is quite accessible.

Campus

The Ann Arbor campus is spread over 712 acres and is divided into North, Central, South and Medical campuses. All campuses are conveniently connected by bus and shuttles. The college of Engineering is in the North Campus, which also houses an excellent library having over 4 million volumes.

Residing Options

The campus housing system here can accommodate up to 11,000 students, though most grad students prefer to live off campus in apartments or houses. The most preferred destination for these are the Central and South campus area where the rent is around $900 per month.

Faculty

UMich is widely regarded as one of the best institutes in the world for just about any field of study, and it has a faculty to match that reputation. Although many professors are involved in high levels of research, they are more than willing to make time for students who take the initiative and show interest. A number of professors are Nobel laureates, and winners of many academic prizes, so one thing that certainly cannot be doubted is the fantastic quality of education you’ll receive if you end up at Ann Arbor.

Jobs and placements

Well, they’re excellent. What else do you expect in one of the topmost schools of the world? Some of the largest companies worldwide visit UMich to pick up students in numbers, but one thing you have to realize is that you’ll be facing tremendous competition from fellow students – don’t let the ‘small fish, big pond’ feeling overwhelm you.
