The Master of Engineering in Manufacturing (MEngM) degree from MIT’s Department of Mechanical Engineering prepares you for leadership positions in the multidisciplinary profession of manufacturing and gives you the tools to grow in this dynamic field.
The MEngM is designed to combine in-depth graduate subjects with team projects both on campus an in industry. The approach leads to what our alumni has termed “compressed” or “formalized” experience, and gives our graduates a bend of theory and practice in that unique prepares them for this most demanding field. The curriculum includes subjects in manufacturing processes and process control, factory system and supply chains, business fundamentals and the product development process. Several subject include hands-on labs, and most have significant project components. Outside of the formal classroom there are numerous activities including interactions with industry leaders, manufacturing entrepreneurs, and thought leaders. Finally, there is an 8 month long “Group Project in Industry”, where each student as part of a team, works with a local manufacturing company on a problem of immediate value to the company, and that will also lead to the MEng thesis.
This synergistic combination of MIT's eminent-engineering curriculum with pragmatic time in industry, enables you to graduate in just 12 months fully prepared to be both an effective and innovative leader in the field.
