Manufacturing Engineering (MS/ME)

Explore materials and manufacturing processes,  assembly and product engineering, and research how to design manufacturing systems that are competitive and efficient. 

This is an interdisciplinary program with an emphasis on hands-on learning.  It is offered both as a master of science and master of engineering degree option. Both degree programs consist of a total of 30 hours of coursework, including 12 hours of core courses.

The  master of science  is a research-oriented, thesis degree program and requires:

  • 12 credit hours from manufacturing core areas
  • 6 credit hours of 6000-level courses in manufacturing
  • 6 to 9 credit hours for thesis research
  • 3 to 6 credit hours of graduate courses in manufacturing

The master of engineering  is a practice-oriented, non-thesis degree program and requires:

  • 12 credit hours from manufacturing core areas
  • 6 credit hours of 6000-level courses in manufacturing
  • 3 credit hours of approved mathematics/computer science, or any suggested manufacturing courses
  • 6 credit hours of graduate courses in manufacturing
  • 3 credit hours of work related to the practice-oriented project

The practice-oriented project is defined by the student and advisor. At the end of the project, the student should demonstrate the proficiency of operating certain manufacturing processes, and the capability to improve the process.
