Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the Mcity Test Facility and Office Building will be closed until further notice. Although our facilities will be closed, the Mcity staff will still be working from home during normal business hours. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have during this time.

At Mcity, U-M faculty and researchers, as well as graduate and undergraduate students from a range of academic disciplines, help shape the future of mobility.

CONNECT WITH US

Research. Collaboration. Education.

Research is a priority. Mcity funds technology projects, but our interests extend well beyond the technical. We engage with faculty across campus: architecture and urban planning, business, law, public health, public policy, the social sciences, and more. Part of our mission is to educate and train U-M students who will be leaders in the emergence of 21st century mobility systems.

Matching Students with Startups

TechLab at Mcity provides students an opportunity to participate in sponsored company projects, giving them experience in developing cutting edge technology at early-stage companies in the connected and automated vehicle industry. The TechLab course offered by Michigan Engineering operates as an independent study, providing students a unique opportunity to explore coursework outside of a dedicated Michigan Engineering program and work with peers, colleagues, and faculty across multiple disciplines. TechLab is managed by Michigan Engineering’s Center for Entrepreneurship, in partnership with Mcity.
