Master of Science (MS) in Manufacturing Engineering

The Manufacturing Engineering program offers graduate training in the application of modern engineering methods to problems of manufacturing. The course of study is designed to provide a balance between engineering for manufacturing and operations management. There are a variety of means to attain a Master of Science in Manufacturing Engineering, including on-campus study, a dual degree program with the School of Management, distance learning, and international exchange research-oriented programs.

The MS program draws students from many scientific and engineering areas, including mechanical, computer, industrial, materials, and electrical engineering. Study is supported by laboratories in the areas of automated design and manufacturing systems, computer-integrated manufacturing, computer-aided engineering (CAE), process controls, high-temperature oxidation, high-temperature chemical and electrical processing of materials, microscopy, powder metallurgy, X-ray, production control, robotics, and surface modification.

Structured Course Requirements for MS in Manufacturing Engineering

The 32 credits must be selected as follows:

  • 3 courses (12 credits) must be Manufacturing Engineering Core Courses
  • 2 courses (8 credits) must 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)
  • Mathematics requirement (4 credits) selected from an approved list (500 & 700 level only)
  • Thesis credit requirement (8 credits)
