Motion Introduced by: Curriculum and Academic Programs Committee

Title of Motion: Request from The College of Technology and Innovation – Department of Engineering – for the establishment of a graduate degree – MS in Manufacturing Engineering
The Curriculum and Academic Programs Committee recommends University Senate approval of a proposal submitted by the College of Technology and Innovation – Department of Engineering – for the establishment of a graduate degree – MS in Manufacturing Engineering
This program being proposed is an evolution of the existing Manufacturing Engineering Technology concentration under the MS in Technology degree within the College of Technology and Innovation (CTI).
The new program is strongly based on the existing MSTECH concentration and its courses. However, the program will continue to evolve, in part to reflect the establishment of the new BS in Manufacturing Engineering and the unique aspects of engineering education at the
Polytechnic campus. Manufacturing engineering draws upon two distinct bodies of knowledge, manufacturing processes (e.g., how materials are altered in either shape or properties) and the processes of manufacturing (e.g., manufacturing systems and management), in a synergistic manner. These foundations cut across most manufacturing industries.
