Jerry Dobek / Deb Maison / Jay Smith

Through 18 months of work and more than 60 course descriptions in seven different engineering specialties, Jerry Dobek (seated) kept one thing in mind: Student success.

Dobek, fellow science and math instructor Jay Smith (right) and NMC adviser Deb Maison (center) won the 2019 statewide Innovation in Transfer Award for their work on new engineering articulation agreements with Michigan Technological University, one of the state’s leading engineering schools. Students who complete NMC’s engineering certificate with a 2.75 GPA are guaranteed admission to MTU, entering as juniors to complete their bachelor of science.

The first 2+2 program between NMC and MTU was created in 1990. The new agreements reflect how engineering programs have changed and how graduation requirements have become more specialized. Read more at engineering

NMC has articulation agreements in place with 35 educational institutions for more than 100 programs.
