Climate scientists talk about the usefulness of their data and knowledge. Practitioners, those who apply that knowledge, talk about usability. The Applied Climate MEng is the bridge between the two, with training focused on developing skills as a climate interpreter.
The University of Michigan’s College of Engineering strives to be innovative, daring, and forward-thinking in our service to society. Across the University, many departments have interests in climate change and sustainability. At Michigan, you will be part of a vital collection of organizations with global span and interests, as well as being a center of research and education on the Great Lakes.
Applied Climate students, often, work closely with students in the School of Environment and Sustainability (SEAS) and, especially, the Great Lakes Integrated Sciences and Assessments Center. We also work with numerous local organizations, for example, the Cooperative Institute for Great Lakes Research (CIGLR), the Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL), and the Great Lakes Science Center.
