Providing the ideal foundation

The Manufacturing Systems Engineering (MSE) Master of Science Degree Program is multidisciplinary, drawing courses and faculty from the College of Engineering, the computer sciences department, and School of Business. Hands-on projects with associated manufacturing firms and classes taught by internationally recognized experts provide the ideal foundation for those entering the competitive manufacturing environment. The purpose of the MSE Program is to:

  • Offer hands-on experience in solving problems in design, development, implementation and operation of modern manufacturing systems;

  • Explore computer-aided design, manufacturing and engineering;

  • Provide an awareness of engineering and management issues affecting manufacturing competitiveness.

20 MS degrees awarded in 1999-2000

Twenty students earned degrees in the last year. These graduates have been exposed to management, accounting, manufacturing, engineering and quality studies. The MSE Program has supplied them with the technical and management skills to meet the demands of industry today and in the future.

Practical problems, cutting-edge concepts

MSE students are exposed to practical problems and cutting-edge concepts, creating engineers who can combine management skills with advanced technical abilities. The courses cover a broad range of manufacturing issues, while reinforcing a systems approach and allowing students to tailor their studies to individual interests. The MSE Program is widely acknowledged as a leading provider of versatile engineers for modern manufacturing firms. Graduates continually prove themselves on the job, implementing advanced manufacturing projects requiring superb communication between management and mechanical, industrial, electrical and process engineers. Most students choose from numerous job offers.
