Master of Engineering in Manufacturing

The Master of Engineering in Manufacturing (M. Eng. in Mfg.) is a graduate professional program designed for engineers who have already earned a Bachelor of Science in Engineering in any engineering discipline. The objective of the degree is to prepare these engineers for leadership roles in manufacturing. Students can choose from more than 80 courses offered through departments in the College of Engineering and the Ross School of Business. The degree can be earned in one calendar year, including a four-month team project in industry.

For more information, please visit the ISD Manufacturing website at: isd.engin.umich.edu/mfgeng.

Team Project

Students admitted to the M. Eng. in Mfg. program must conduct an industry-relevant project related to manufacturing. There are several options for part-time and full-time students to complete the project requirement. Project opportunities will be discussed and developed upon admission to the program. One option for applicants planning to pursue the program full-time is to apply to the Tauber Institute for Global Operations. The Tauber Institute assists students in finding projects in industry.

Sequential Undergraduate / Graduate Study

  • B.S.E. in Aerospace Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Computer Science, Industrial & Operations Engineering, Materials Science & Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering
  • Master of Engineering in Manufacturing

This Sequential Undergraduate/Graduate Study (SUGS) program leads to a Master of Engineering in Manufacturing. University of Michigan for students who are pursuing a B.S.E. in an eligible department and who meet all the SUGS requirements may apply to the Manufacturing program to pursue the SUGS program, which allows them to complete their B.S.E. and M. Eng. in Mfg. in five years total.

For more detailed information about the program, please visit the ISD SUGS webpage.

Online Learning

The Master of Engineering in Manufacturing program can be earned entirely online by qualified students from around the world. ISD has been offering courses to off-campus students through a variety of methods over several decades. Currently, courses in ISD programs are hybrid, combining on-campus and online students in the same course, with the same instructors and syllabi.

The online degree is a great option for engineers who are currently working full-time. It is just as rigorous and current as the on-campus degree. The degree is identical in that the diploma is the same whether a student earned the degree online or on-campus.

Dual Master of Engineering in Manufacturing/M.B.A.

In this dual degree program, qualified students can pursue concurrent work in manufacturing engineering and business administration that leads to both a Master of Engineering in Manufacturing from the College of Engineering and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the Ross School of Business. The program is arranged so that all requirements are satisfied simultaneously. The dual degree can be earned in two and one-half years by full-time students. It is also offered part-time through the Ross School of Business Evening Program.

Please visit the ISD website for more information at: isd.engin.umich.edu/mem-mba.

Doctor of Engineering in Manufacturing

The Doctor of Engineering in Manufacturing is a graduate professional degree in engineering for students who already have earned a bachelor’s degree in engineering and a master’s degree in any field of engineering or MBA. Students work with a faculty advisor to develop a custom plan of study that blends engineering disciplines with management and business. An important element of the program is an industry-relevant engineering-practice-oriented dissertation that is supervised by a dissertation committee. Graduates of this doctoral program possess a depth of knowledge in manufacturing systems and the skills to carry out high quality engineering research and development.
