Michigan Engineering Zone (MEZ)

Description

The MEZ is a safe and supportive forum where Detroit students acquire the knowledge and tools they need to propel themselves to higher education and careers in the STEM fields. Outfitted with computer labs complete with CAD software, a machine shop, robot testing area, and collaborative workstations, Detroit’s engineers and U-M faculty, staff, students, and alumni provide training and mentoring within an environment of learning, leadership, teamwork, and fun! In the MEZ’s flagship program, more than a dozen Detroit high schools and 230 students work to design, build, and test their robots for the FIRST Robotics Competition.
