Engineering Student Project Teams

The College of Engineering’s CAEN computer labs are intended to support the course-related, instructional needs of enrolled Michigan Engineering students. Since Engineering Student Project Teams provide a valuable educational experience to students, and non-Engineering students may be members of these teams, CAEN provides those members access to the computer labs with the following requirements:

  • Students must be enrolled in a U-M course during the current term, and must be in good standing with the University, as verified by Wolverine Access.
  • The need for access to CAEN computer labs must be established in written form by the team’s College of Engineering faculty advisor.
    • The faculty advisor must submit a request online at Contact CAEN, or by email to, stating that the student requires access for their team duties.

Before submitting the request, faculty advisors are asked to consider the following:

  • The availability of computers in CAEN labs is valuable to enrolled College of Engineering students, and each “seat” represents a resource required for them to complete their course-related work.
  • The Duderstadt Center is open to all enrolled U-M students. It contains hundreds of CAEN computers, each providing access to the same software that is available in the CAEN labs located in Engineering buildings, and may be used as an alternative.

In addition, any student granted access to CAEN computers should know that they are subject to all U-M policies, including those outlined on the CAEN Conditions of Use page.
