MEng in Manufacturing Engineering

The Master of Engineering (MEng) degree in Manufacturing Engineering is a professional master’s program for students seeking to further their careers in industry. MEng programs are suited for:

  • Graduating senior students who want a one-year master’s in engineering before they look for industrial jobs
  • Mid-career professionals who want to switch careers and would like to complete a one-year master’s degree between jobs
  • Industry professionals who want exposure to engineering and management to further their careers


Master of Engineering students are required to complete a minimum of 32 credit hours applicable to the degree according to the program planning sheet. No master’s thesis is required. All 32 credits must be at the 500 level or above.

Structured Course Requirements for MEng in Manufacturing Engineering

The 32 credits must be selected as follows:

  • Three courses (12 credits) must be manufacturing engineering Core courses
  • Two courses (8 credits) must be engineering management courses
  • Three courses (12 credits) may be engineering/science electives (any 500/700-level engineering or physical science course, with no more than one course from the approved list of engineering management courses)
