Manufacturing Engineering MS (UW–Stout)

Engineering, Architecture, & Applied Tech

The MS degree in Manufacturing Engineering serves students across the region and beyond. Our fully-online program has been designed in response to regional needs for a graduate program to provide educational incentives for recruitment and retention of engineers. The program will accommodate the work requirements of these full-time professionals, being presented entirely online.

Objectives of the program:

  • To apply mathematical models to the analysis of practical engineering problems.
  • To apply appropriate production operations management principles to the design and operation of manufacturing processes and systems.
  • To develop expertise in the areas of project management, automation and control, system design and integration, or other advanced manufacturing engineering topics.
  • To synthesize the knowledge gained in the first three objectives in solution of practical engineering projects.
