The Master of Science in Manufacturing Engineering is designed to provide advanced competencies in the areas of computer-aided manufacturing, computer-aided design and analysis, and integrated processing of polymers, metals, and composite materials.  This program is designed for decision-makers in manufacturing engineering, engineering graphics and design, process engineering, quality assurance, and tooling design.


Admission Requirements


  1. A candidate for admission must possess a baccalaureate degree from a recognized program in engineering, physics, mathematics, or other field related to engineering.
  2. Possess a grade point average of 3.0 or better during the last two years of undergraduate work.
  3. Submit GRE (Graduate Record Examination) scores from the General Test.
  4. Have completed undergraduate courses in computer-aided design, computer-aided manufacturing, properties of materials, metrology, quality control, and manufacturing processes or equivalent experience.  Students who lack this background should consult with an advisor as specialized programs (usually involving additional credit hours over basic requirements) can be provided.

Program Requirements

The Master of Science in Manufacturing Engineering requires a minimum of 30 hours: 15 hours of core courses and 15 hours of electives.

2. Elective courses (15 hours) are chosen in consultation with the academic program advisor.

Electives may include a project (IME 6970) with a written report and oral presentation and are listed on-line at www.wmich.edu/ime. Any IME 6000-level class can be substituted for IME 6970. Students may also take IME 6990 which allows students to receive credit for practical training.
