“The five-year Engineering master’s program is what attracted me to Detroit Mercy. The professors are very welcoming and they really care for me as an individual and how well I do. Class size is another plus as every student gets the attention they need. The professors are an email or a knock on a door away for assistance whenever the need arises. I am proud and honored to tell my friends and family that I am part of this great institution."
