Dear Friends, Learners, and Colleagues,
As we continue to navigate the impact of COVID-19, I want to share with you how Nexus is responding to the unprecedented challenges facing our learning community here in Michigan and around the world. We recognize that the need for practical knowledge and applied skills never stops, even in times of uncertainty. While all of us make an effort to help "flatten the curve", Nexus is doing its part to offer remote learning opportunities that are relevant, engaging, and attuned to your career goals.
For those eyeing a career change, we are excited to offer hybrid delivery of our new Cybersecurity Bootcamp, geared towards learners of all professional backgrounds who want to enter the fast-growing and in-demand field. This accelerated bootcamp is designed to take candidates from zero-experience to job-readiness in less than one year, including foundational skills, hands-on applications, and job placement assistance.
This summer, Nexus will launch Foundations of Mobility, a new fully-online certificate taught by experts from six different colleges across the University of Michigan. As urban centers grow and connected transport becomes a reality, the need for systems-level solutions to challenges like congestion, sustainability, and safety are more important than ever. This two-course certificate provides the integrated, cross-disciplinary knowledge required to address these complex challenges.
I'm also pleased to announce new remote options for several of our established certificate programs. Upcoming courses like Lean Leadership, Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and Black Belt, and Human Factors Engineering will now be offered through a combination of live remote instruction and remote recorded lectures. Using the latest technology, this option merges real-time classroom sessions with self-paced learning, enabling learners to interact live with faculty and peers while also enjoying the convenience of asynchronous delivery.
The College continues to lead in online graduate education, as well. Ranked the #4 Best Online Graduate Engineering Program by U.S. News, our master's degrees offer the same level of engagement, academic rigor, and recognition as if you were studying on campus in Ann Arbor.
As University of Michigan Engineering's home for online education, Nexus is committed to providing innovative, high-quality learning experiences while maintaining the safety and wellbeing of all. While our team works hard to support faculty and learners during this challenging time, we encourage you to take advantage of the remote learning options we're proud to offer our professional education community.
