The University of Michigan College of Engineering has been a recognized leader in distance education since 1969 when we began offering credit courses to students around the world. Today, our expertise allows us to offer four interdisciplinary master’s degree programs that can be completed entirely online. More than 500 students worldwide are active in these advanced online programs, taught by the same U-M faculty using the same syllabi and offering the same content that is available to students on the Ann Arbor campus. Online and on campus programs are equally challenging and rigorous. Every student who graduates with an ISD interdisciplinary master's degree—whether online or on campus—is a member of the University of Michigan alumni body and the university community with its lifelong benefits.
