The MS program in the Department of Manufacturing Engineering provides world-recognized leadership in the education of students pursuing a degree in manufacturing engineering through a program focused on rigorous and in-depth understanding of manufacturing processes. This focus provides a unique expertise related to the science of manufacturing design and production. Graduate students in the program have opportunities to engage in research associated with metallurgical or composite materials processing, solid-state processing and joining, and additive or subtractive processing. Specific research activities in these areas are described on the Manufacturing Engineering Department Web page at https://mfgen.byu.edu/research-in-mfgen.
The Manufacturing Engineering Department offers one graduate degree: Manufacturing Engineering—MS.
The typical time required to obtain an MS in manufacturing engineering is approximately two years.
Chair: Tracy Nelson
Graduate Coordinator: Yuri Hovanski
Nationally recognized instructional laboratories are available to provide students with the most current concepts, curriculum, software, equipment, and laboratory instructional/physical organization.
Many graduate students work in the MFGEN department as teaching assistants (TA) or as research assistants (RA). Manufacturing Engineering offers a limited number of scholarships. Application for financial aid is made through the program’s graduate coordinator.
