What will I learn?

The University of New Mexico (UNM) Manufacturing Engineering Program (MEP), a multidisciplinary graduate-level program within the School of Engineering (SOE), offers the degree of Master of Engineering in Manufacturing Engineering (MEME) via all SOE departments, except Civil Engineering. The MEME degree requires 33 credit hours. A Master of Science (M.S.) degree with a Manufacturing concentration is offered via the Mechanical Engineering Department (37 credit hours). A 3-month industrial internship in a manufacturing setting is required for the MEME and MS/Mfg degrees. Although a research thesis is an option, MEP students typically elect to do a manufacturing project with industry.

The MEME degree supports concentrations in Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM), Mechanical and Equipment Manufacturing (MEM), and Semiconductor and Electronics Manufacturing (SEM). The MEP core curriculum utilizes two MBA-level courses provided by the UNM Anderson Schools of Management (ASM) that cover manufacturing organization and management (MGMT-506) and microeconomics for managers (MGMT-504). The SEM concentration has a special core that covers semiconductor and microelectronics design and processing, and factory design and operations. The various curricula are listed under the Curricula site button.
