ADMI - Advanced Design & Manufacturing Institute
Applications to be accepted in late Fall 2016 for classes beginning May, 2017.
I realized that my then 20-year old international bachelor’s degree was on an endangered species list. When I came across the ADMI website, I knew right away that a Master of Engineering degree with a combination of engineering and management subjects would differentiate me from the pack.
