Schools promote research as auto industry boost
Additional projects are under way, and the schools note that they each year produce more than 3,600 science, technology, engineering and mathematics graduates. Many of those who stay in the state end up working in the automotive industry.
"It is a huge magnet for talent. There is huge demand for that," URC executive director Jeff Mason said of research and development work in the state.
The URC is working to promote research efforts in Michigan along with MICHauto, which was set up by the Detroit Regional Chamber to boost the auto industry.
