The master of science degree in mechanical and manufacturing technology (MSMMT) provides students with a background in applied engineering methods utilizing the latest design and analysis software and hardware.
Program requirements provide advanced concepts of engineering and project administration for the mechanical and manufacturing technology M.S. degree. The degree program is designed for recent graduates from engineering and engineering technology four-year degree programs as well as for engineers with industrial experience. It may aid in career advancement by providing the graduate with academic experience with applied-engineering concepts that will coincide with advanced methods in design, analysis, project administration, engineering management, and manufacturing emphasizing mechanical engineering technology.
This flexible degree program permits the student to develop a program of study, with faculty approval, to meet individual career goals. While the program is not an evening program, many courses are offered either during the late afternoon or early evening.
Degree concentrations are designed to provide graduates with technical and professional skills that will facilitate preparation for, and advancement in, leadership positions in industry, education, government and the military.
1. A bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university with a minimum cumulative
GPA of 2.75 overall, and 3.0 (4.0 scale) in a major such as Mechanical Engineering (ME) or Mechanical Engineering Technology(MET); or the consideration of a degree (MET, ME, or other such technical degree) and a minimum combined quantitative/verbal score of 1000 on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). The department may grant conditional admission to the program if the minimum requirements are not met. Any additional work requirements or waivers of general prerequisites for admission shall be set by the department at the time of acceptance.
