MEngM Curriculum Overview
The Master of Engineering in Manufacturing degree curriculum exposes you to a broad yet thorough overview of the core manufacturing principals.
In the MEngM program, you will be fully immersed in a comprehensive curriculum covering Process and Assembly Physics, Factory and Supply Chain Systems, Product Design, and Business Fundamentals and Operational Excellence.
These courses comprise four course-based components, or pillars — manufacturing physics, manufacturing systems, product design, and business fundamentals — that require both individual and group work on class projects. Your efforts in these courses ultimately culminate during a three-month group project in a manufacturing industry, about which you will compose a thesis.
