B.S. Manufacturing Engineering

Program Overview:

The Manufacturing Engineering (MfgE) curriculum is hands-on and career- oriented. Students gain broad, practical knowledge in the major areas of Manufacturing Engineering. Manufacturing engineers work closely with mechanical, electrical and other engineers as a member of the design team to ensure manufacturability of the product while considering recycling and other aspects of the product life cycle. They also concentrate on the facilities, equipment, processes and methods necessary for the efficient and safe production of products in a globally competitive environment. Manufacturing engineers direct and coordinate the processes for transforming materials into products and guide the design, and conduct analysis and modification of product design to ensure the viability of the design for manufacturability.


The manufacturing engineering curriculum will include courses in the areas of:

  1. Materials and Materials Processing
  2. Engineering Design for Manufacturability
  3. Lean and Quality Manufacturing
  4. Manufacturing Automation and Robotics
  5. Additive and Reverse Engineering

Students may choose on of five tracks in which to specialize:

  1. Automation
  2. Materials Processing
  3. Occupational Health & Safety
  4. Lean and Six Sigma
  5. SAP
