General Information for Manufacturing Engineering Program

The University of New Mexico offers several options leading to a master degree in manufacturing disciplines. Students may earn Master of Science degrees in ME, with a manufacturing concentration, or, a student may earn the degree of Master of Engineering in Manufacturing Engineering (MEME) - a degree that is aimed at engineering practice and covers a wider range of manufacturing topics than the MS programs.

The 33-hour MEME program generally requires three to four semesters to complete. The MEME/MBA degree may take two or more years to complete. A 3-month internship in a manufacturing company is required for those students not currently employed in manufacturing. Industrial fellowships are available for qualified students needing financial help, in addition to the paid internship.
