Master of Science in Manufacturing Engineering

The master of science degree program advances knowledge through post-baccalaureate coursework. The program requires 32 credit hours. Students have the option of completing a thesis based on up to eight credit hours of research (MMAE 591) with the approval of a thesis adviser, or completing the program with courses, which may include up to six credit hours of projects (MMAE 594). In line with the department's approach to its graduate programs, a student has considerable flexibility, in consultation with his/her adviser, in formulating an M.S. program.

Before completion of the first semester of graduate study, full-time students should select a permanent adviser. Graduate students pursuing the M.S. degree on a part-time basis should select a permanent adviser before registering for their twelfth credit hour. The student, in consultation with the adviser, prepares a program of study that reflects individual needs and interests. The adviser as well as the department's graduate studies committee and the department chair must approve this program. Students with the thesis option are required to pass an oral comprehensive examination on his/her thesis and related topics. The examination committee consists of at least three appropriate faculty members who are nominated by the thesis adviser and appointed by the department's graduate studies committee.
