Manufacturing Engineering Technology - Master of Science


The mission of the Manufacturing Engineering Technology Master of Science Degree program is to produce engineering graduates with an advanced technical education that allows them to take on leadership roles in globally competitive manufacturing industries.

Educational Objectives

The educational objectives of the program are to:

  • Provide manufacturing and non-manufacturing engineers with advanced technical and managerial skills that allow them to be the leaders in manufacturing industries.
  • Expand graduates' expertise through industry-based applied research, lab-based design and analysis.
  • Strengthen graduates' ability to work productively in a global manufacturing environment.

Expected Student Learning Outcomes

The graduates of the Master of Science Degree program in Manufacturing Engineering Technology must demonstrate:

  1. The ability to solve engineering problems using advanced mathematical, computational, and analytical methods appropriate to the discipline.
  2. The ability to improve current manufacturing processes using a variety of techniques, including product life cycle management, quality and inventory control, and planning techniques.
  3. The ability to use current computer tools for manufacturing problems.
  4. The ability to plan and conduct professional activities (including manufacturing projects) in one or more areas of specialization in the discipline by using advanced knowledge.
  5. Knowledge related to global awareness.
  6. The ability to communicate effectively in both written and oral forms.
