Colleges and Universities in Michigan

Michigan's urban areas--yes, even Detroit--are experiencing a resurgence. Young people, in particular, are attracted to Michigan's centers of urban renewal. In some parts of Detroit, the average age is just 33 years old. Michigan's population has decreased in recent years (it's down about 1 percent since 2000), and the median household income still hovers slightly below the national average. (In 2010, it was $45,000). The state is in transition, moving from its industrial past to a future grounded in alternative energy, the life sciences and technology.

Michigan is home to more than 100 institutions of higher learning. These include four-year public and private universities and two-year institutions. Actor Jeff Daniels is an alumnus of Central Michigan University, which is assisting the Pentagon in development of a water-filtration system and is considered a top research university. The University of Michigan, a renowned research institute, is ranked the world's 15th best university by U.S. News & World Report.

Building your career in Michigan

More than 20 Fortune 500 companies including Ally Financial, Dow Chemical, Ford, GM, Kellogg's, Lear and multiple energy firms are located in Michigan. While the auto industry isn't the powerhouse it once was, the state still attracts large numbers of designers, engineers and researchers. Detroit is currently the hottest market in the nation for tech jobs--and many of those techies are quietly re-envisioning vehicle transportation.

Other hot industries in Michigan include alternative energy (bioenergy, wind and solar), life sciences (including pharmaceuticals and medical device development) and defense. Some of the occupations with the most openings in the state include those for accountants and auditors, industrial engineers and registered nurses. According to 2010 data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the mean earned wages associated with these and other top jobs included:

  1. Accountants and auditors: $66,450
  2. Computer systems analysts: $72,890
  3. Industrial engineers: $80,640
  4. General and operations managers: $106,400
  5. Mechanical engineers: $85,360
  6. Registered nurses: $63,970

Michigan's economy is described as recovering, according to Moody's Analytics, meaning that it could be a good idea to pursue your education and career in the state.
