Advanced Manufacturing and Enterprise Engineering (M.S.)

Basic Degree Information/Description

Program Overview: As lean thinking, enterprise process re-engineering, and digital manufacturing are becoming more prevalent in the work place, engineering and science professionals need to be prepared to address the enterprise as a holistic system of technologies, decision-making processes, and cultural components. The Master of Science in Advanced Manufacturing and Enterprise Engineering (M.S. in AMEE) program is designed to offer an opportunity to individuals who are inspired for leadership positions in industry, government and academia. The M.S. in AMEE is truly an interdisciplinary program founded on the strong collaboration of many academic departments and the Center for Advanced Manufacturing and Lean Systems (CAMLS). Graduate students are exposed to research problems through projects with the industry consortium members of CAMLS and its state-of-the-art laboratory facilities.

Advanced Manufacturing: Effective integration and synthesis of automation technologies, human resources, and decision making models that facilitate efficient design, planning, scheduling and control of production of goods and provision of services.

Enterprise Engineering: Use of effective systems engineering tools, lean and six-sigma methodologies to engineer the entire enterprise or design and integration of certain enterprise components for most efficient products, process and business operations.
