MEM is an independent academic program that belongs to both the School of Engineering and the School of Business. The students majoring in MEM graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree conferred by both the School of Engineering and the School of Business.


The mission of UConn’s MEM Program is to develop professionals with a solid foundation in engineering and business skills, plus a total enterprise vision, and intimate knowledge of production in manufacturing and in the service industry.

The MEM program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,, as part of UConn’s School of Engineering, in both Manufacturing Engineering and Engineering Management.  ABET is the same organization that accredits all engineering programs at UConn and national peer institutions.

The MEM program is also accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) as part of UConn’s School of Business.

These accreditations affirm the University of Connecticut’s commitment to academic quality and educational excellence. The MEM Program Educational Objectives are to prepare our graduates to:

  • practice their profession with solid engineering and business knowledge and skills with a total enterprise vision, tackling ever-evolving real-world challenges with an innovative mindset and balanced engineering and business perspectives;
  • progress towards leadership roles, successfully applying manufacturing and engineering management principles to various products and processes;
  • apply high professional standards and practice life-long learning.

To achieve these program educational objectives, our students shall demonstrate the following outcomes by the time they graduate from our program:

  • An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  • An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  • An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  • An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  • An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  • An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  • An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
