Master's of Science in Manufacturing Engineering
This program has a technical focus on skills and expertise relevant to Manufacturing Engineering.
The MS in Manufacturing Engineering requires students to take a minimum of three courses, one from each of three different areas of Manufacturing: 1) the quality area, 2) the design area, and 3) the systems area. Once this requirement is satisfied the student is free to select remaining courses from any area of Manufacturing Engineering. Further, the student may select additional approved courses from other areas of study. The student is free to choose between a thesis, a report option, or a course work only option. The degree requires 30 hours of graduate work for thesis students, and 36 hours of course work and project work for the other degree options. The plan of study for the MS in Manufacturing Engineering is used to plan the graduate program with the student’s advisor.
Both the MS in Manufacturing Engineering and MS in Engineering Management allow for a concentration in Systems Engineering. To complete a concentration in Systems Engineering the student must complete the required courses for their respective degree and complete all electives in the Systems Engineering area. Courses required for the Systems Engineering Concentration are listed in the catalog and on the following flyer. Limited substitution of courses is available based on circumstances. It is recommended that the department graduate coordinator be consulted regarding these substitutions.
