MEME/MBA DUAL DEGREE PLAN

MASTER of ENGINEERING in MANUFACTURING ENGINEERING

and MASTER of BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION PROGRAM

(MEME/MBA DUAL DEGREE PLAN)


The School of Engineering (SOE) and the Anderson Schools of Management (ASM) offer a dual-degree program leading to the degrees of Master of Engineering in Manufacturing Engineering (MEME, Code 339) and the Master of Business Administration (MBA, Code 140). Under this 60-hour program, seven courses are shared: ASM will accept 9 hours of graduate credit from the Manufacturing Engineering Program (MEP) core and 6 hours of engineering technical electives; the SOE will accept 6 hours of graduate credit from ASM, to be applied to the MEP core. Engineering Concentration Electives may come from either the Mechanical Manufacturing Concentration or the Computers in Manufacturing Concentration (as defined for the MEME degree).

Students pursing this program must satisfy the admission and other academic requirements of both schools. Students need to take the GRE (required for MEME) and the GMAT (required for MBA) for admission. Students are required to complete a three-month industrial internship, in a manufacturing setting (or demonstrate previous equivalent experience). Students are also required to complete a 3 credit hour Project (Plan II) in conjunction with a manufacturing enterprise, or complete a 6 credit hour Thesis (Plan I). 

Applicants for the MEME/MBA dual-degree plan must apply to and be admitted to, in parallel, the Anderson Schools of Management (for the MBA program, which requires the GMAT) and the School of Engineering Manufacturing Engineering Program (for the MEME, which requires the GRE). Applicants for the MEME/MBA degree need to denote degree code "339/140 (MEME/MBA)" on their application forms. Graduation for both degrees must occur in the same semester.

BSME/MEME

SHARED-CREDIT UNDERGRADUATE/GRADUATE DEGREE PROGRAMS

The Manufacturing Engineering Program has a shared-credit undergraduate/graduate degree program (BSME/MEME degrees) with the Department of Mechanical Engineering. A shared-credit undergraduate/graduate degree program (such as 3+2, 4+1, etc.) provides an accelerated path to earning both a baccalaureate and master's degree. Both the baccalaureate and master's degree requirements are completed in a program-defined number of years by means of shared course work.

See UNM Catalog for further details.

During the Senior Year, 1st semester, the BSME/MEME candidate takes a ME Tech Elective that relates to the Computers in Manufacturing (CIM) or Mechanical Manufacturing (MEM) Concentrations. During the Senior Year, 2nd semester, the BSME/MEME candidate takes ME-586 Design for Manufacturing as one ME Tech Elective, and takes STAT-570 Industrial Statistics (replaces ME-583 Statistics for Improving Product Quality) as a second ME Tech Elective, and takes ECE-440 Computer Networks as a Technical Elective.

The net effect of the above plan is to allow 4 graduate-level courses (12 hrs) to be taken in the Senior Year (Yr 4). That leaves 1 class to be taken during the Summer (MGT-506), 3 classes for Fall (Yr 5/1) and 3 classes for Spring (Yr 5/2). There is no internship requirement. However, applicants might consider a paid internship during the first summer of the program. The Project or Thesis should be started during the Fall Semester (Yr 5/1) and completed by Spring Semester (Yr 5/2).
