Master of Science - Engineering Technology Leadership
The Master of Science program in Engineering Technology Leadership provides advanced course work in manufacturing strategies, agendas, and quality control and addresses principles of world-class organizations and restructuring of manufacturing practices, including: simultaneous/concurrent engineering practices, just-in-time manufacturing, material requirements/resources planning, and product and process simplification with value analysis/value engineering.
The program permits advanced course work for those persons having baccalaureate degrees in a variety of related technological fields (manufacturing, engineering, industrial, and production are a few examples). Other professionals who find it necessary to develop technical knowledge and skills from disciplines as diverse as computer science, industrial engineering, and business administration can benefit from the program.
Students have the choice of one of three plans:
- professional internship,
- or independent research.
Experiences include automation, CAD/CAM, CNC, robotics, measurement, and process control. The opportunity to participate in industrial work experiences (manufacturing internship), to pursue independent studies, and to perform independent research, coupled with graduate laboratory courses and technical writing at required industry standards, provides a balanced program of studies that may be designed to meet the individual needs of the student.
