Dean’s Office

Welcome to the College of Innovation & Technology!

Christopher Pearson

I am proud to lead this new academic unit at the University of Michigan-Flint. Working with academic colleagues, industry leaders, and other partners, we are building an extraordinary educational experience for students who want to pursue careers in the diverse and exciting fields of technology. 

Innovation is central to the mission and vision of CIT and will be integral in all our actions and endeavors. Our curriculum includes innovative degrees in bachelor of science in technology programs that prepare students for the workforce of the 21st century. Our students will become the broadly educated leaders of the future who can navigate and excel in the social and cultural challenges of our times. 

Our new academic programs are designed for students who are creative, curious, and enjoy hands-on learning experiences. Programs in CIT will: engage thought leaders, solve real-world problems, test drive technology, explore relevant internships, and foster collaborative environments leading to novel solutions and inventions. CIT students will select courses from multiple disciplines that will encourage them to critically examine their surroundings, and develop cutting-edge solutions for everyday living. 

We are working hard every day to prepare for and welcome our first cohort of students in Fall 2021. Whether you are a student or industry leader, I hope you will reach out and join us as we create a truly revolutionary educational experience for our students who will be leaders of technology in the future.

Go Blue!
