What is a Master of Engineering in Manufacturing?
The Master of Engineering in Manufacturing (MEngM) degree is a synergistic integration of MIT’s eminent engineering curriculum with pragmatic time in industry: It bonds together the fundamental principals of engineering with practical experience in systems, applications, projects, and non-technical topics.
By adding a single year to your four-year undergraduate degree, you are exposed to the full range of topics necessary for manufacturing excellence — many of them through class-based projects and seminars — while concurrently affecting substantive change in a leading manufacturing company through your work on a group-based project vital to that company’s continued success.
Within 12 months you will complete eight predetermined graduate-level engineering courses and compose a thesis based on your rigorous research and work at your industry project site. This accelerated program culminates with a Master of Engineering in Manufacturing degree from the Mechanical Engineering Department at MIT that comprehensively prepares you for technical leadership roles in dynamic manufacturing industries.
Today’s industry leaders pursue technical as well as operational excellence, which places demanding yet exciting challenges on manufacturing engineering professionals. The MIT MEngM degree fully prepares you to meet these challenges by arming you with an exhaustive facility of core manufacturing principals, while also fostering your desire for continued growth in professional competence and competitiveness.
MEngM: Built on Manufacturing Excellence
The Master of Engineering in Manufacturing degree builds upon the educational ideology of other MIT departments and programs spanning several decades:
> > The Laboratory for Manufacturing and Productivity: A lab with over 30 years of sponsored research focused manufacturing.
> > MIT Leaders for Global Operations: Formerly the Leaders for Manufacturing Program, it is a dual MBA, SM degree with more than 20 years experience educating management leaders for manufacturing.
