The M.S. degree in Manufacturing Engineering serves students across the upper midwest. Our program has been designed in response to regional needs for a graduate program to provide educational incentives for recruitment and retention of engineers. The program will accommodate the work requirements of full-time professionals in a hybrid online and face-to-face format. Student will work with faculty on research projects in our laboratories.

Time to Complete the Program

Most students complete the program in about three years as they are working full time while taking classes part time. Two to four years is the normal range of time to complete the program.

Computer Requirements for Students

This program is presented through courses and lectures delivered by streaming video or prerecording, along with face-to-face lecture and laboratory opportunities. A few classes are synchronous with all students online simultaneously via software such as Tegrity. Access to a dedicated computer by each student is necessary. In addition, a high-speed Internet connection is required for the streaming video. A few classes use specialized software such as Minitab, Arena, Solidworks or others. Software is not provided, students are required to obtain or have access to educational versions of the software used in the class.

Graduate students studying on campus are encouraged to supply their own laptop computer.
