Program in Manufacturing
- Master of Engineering in Manufacturing (PIM)
- Joint Degree: Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) in Manufacturing/MBA
- Doctor of Engineering in Manufacturing
- Sequential Graduate/Undergraduate Study
Manufacturing makes the world go around. It is the bedrock of a strong economy, supporting both a solid employment base in direct manufacturing and broader employment in multiple related services. Now, more than ever, the need for leaders who are innovators in technology and who know how to streamline manufacturing processes is critical.
Manufacturing engineering at the University of Michigan prepares students to improve the quality and efficiency of manufacturing systems. It helps them to develop advanced skills in their engineering disciplines and an understanding of the complete product development and manufacturing process, including significant management skills.
Master of Engineering in Manufacturing
Students can choose from more than 80 courses in manufacturing offered through various departments in the College of Engineering and the Ross School of Business. This program is available on campus (either full time or part time) and online.
Students admitted to the Master of Engineering in Manufacturing (M.Eng. in Mfg.) must complete an industry-relevant project related to manufacturing as part of the degree requirements. There are several options for part- 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 M. Eng. in Mfg. program full-time is to apply to the Tauber Institute for Global Operations (Tauber Institute). The Tauber Institute assists students in finding projects in industry. You can find out more about the Tauber Institute at http://www.tauber.umich.edu.
Joint Master of Engineering in Manufacturing/M.B.A.
The Ross School of Business and the Program in Manufacturing within the College of Engineering Graduate Studies offer a joint degree program that enables qualified people to pursue concurrent work in business administration and manufacturing studies leading to the M.B.A. and M.Eng. in Manufacturing degrees. The program is arranged so that all requirements are satisfied simultaneously.
This joint degree program is not open to students who have earned either the M.B.A. or M.Eng. in Manufacturing degrees. Students registered in the first year of either program may apply.
Doctor of Engineering in Manufacturing
The Doctor of Engineering in Manufacturing (D. Eng. in Mfg.) is a graduate professional degree in engineering for students who already have earned a B.S.E. degree and an M.S.E. degree in any field of engineering (e.g., aerospace, chemical, civil and environmental, electrical engineering and computer science, industrial and operations, materials science, mechanical, naval architecture and marine) or a Master of Business Administration.
Sequential Graduate/Undergraduate (SGUS)
Sequential Graduate/Undergraduate Study programs (SGUS) are offered through the Manufacturing Engineering Program. This program leads to the Master of Engineering in Manufacturing (M. Eng. in Manufacturing) sequentially with a Bachelor of Science in Engineering (B.S.E.) through one of the following departments:
- Aerospace Engineering (AERO)
- Chemical Engineering (ChemE)
- Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE)
- Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS)
- Industrial and Operations Engineering (IOE)
- Materials Science and Engineering (MSE)
- Mechanical Engineering (ME)
- Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering (NAME)
The eight engineering departments above participate in this program. Each department is represented on the Manufacturing Council by a faculty member.
