Prospective Students

You do not have to choose between an engineering degree and a business degree, MEM offers the best of both! Management and Engineering for Manufacturing is a unique program where students graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree conferred by both the School of Engineering and School of Business. MEM students take a rigorous course load comprised of engineering courses and business courses. Students are exposed to mechanical, electrical, civil, and material science engineering courses as well as business courses including marketing, finance, project management, and accounting. In addition, students take MEM courses, which combine manufacturing engineering and business. These courses are often co-taught by an engineering professor and a business professor. The curriculum also incorporates group project work. Students start with hands-on project work during their sophomore year through a 3D printing lab, MEM 2212. During junior year, students complete two group projects in MEM 3221, a process improvement project and a complex project. Senior year, students partake in a yearlong Senior Design Project (MEM 4971W and MEM 4972W), which is sponsored by an industry partner. The Senior Design Project allows students to get exposure to real life engineering problems and network with potential future employers. MEM students graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Management and Engineering for Manufacturing.
