About this course
Manufacturing engineering draws upon two distinct bodies of knowledge, manufacturing processes (i.e., how materials are altered in either shape or properties) and the processes of manufacturing (i.e., manufacturing systems and management).
This combination of topics is embedded in the MS in manufacturing engineering program, and students can follow their interests by developing deeper expertise in either manufacturing processes or the processes of manufacturing. The degree provides advanced technical content to help students prepare for career transitions and improve company competitiveness.
The program consists of a core set of courses designed to provide all students with advanced knowledge of manufacturing fundamentals and an introduction to systems engineering. The expertise developed in the core curriculum supports student focus areas building on existing unit faculty strengths, including automation, additive and subtractive manufacturing processes (including computer numerical control machining), modeling and simulation, electronics manufacturing and manufacturing management.
A thesis, applied project or capstone course option is offered.
