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.
The Master of Science in Manufacturing Engineering requires 30 credit hours with a minimum “B” average and no grade below “C”. The program includes 15 hours of core classes, and 15 hours of electives. The specific career path objectives of the individual may be met by focusing the electives and optional thesis or project. The master’s degree candidate shall work with his/her academic advisor to tailor all elective course work.
To meet needs of part-time graduate students, evening courses are offered. In addition, the program allows sufficient time to complete the degree. Showing annual progress, a minimum of three courses taken per year will allow completion of the degree under four years.
A candidate for admission to the Master of Science program in Manufacturing Engineering must:
- Possess a baccalaureate degree with a major in a technical field such as engineering or technology.
- Show evidence of competency in computer programming, mathematics through the calculus level, statistics, two semesters of physics, and one semester of chemistry with laboratories.
- Possess a grade point average of 3.0 or better during the last two years of undergraduate work.
- Submit GRE (Graduate Record Examination) scores in the 30th percentile or higher from the General Test.
- Have completed undergraduate courses or have equivalent work experience in CAD, CAM, properties of materials, metrology, quality control, manufacturing processes, statics, and strength of materials. If a candidate’s background is deficient, foundation courses will be required.
