MSE in Manufacturing Systems Engineering

About the Program

Manufacturing Systems Engineering at the University of Michigan-Dearborn is a 30-credit-hour interdisciplinary master's degree program. Its curriculum has been designed to educate manufacturing professionals who will be designing, building, and managing the competitive production systems of the 21st century. The curriculum consists of courses in both engineering and management.
Evening courses and careful scheduling enable students to complete this highly demanding 30-credit-hour program while maintaining productivity at work and a congenial family life. Full-time students have completed the program in twelve or sixteen months; others have paced their studies over two, three, or even four years depending on their own needs.

As in the cases of existing MS degree programs in the College of Engineering and Computer Science, the course offerings for the MSE (MSE) program are mainly in late afternoon and evening hours to enable students to earn the degree through part-time study. The program may be completed entirely on campus, entirely online, or through a combination of on-campus and online courses.
