For decades, the Manufacturing Engineering program at Brigham Young University has been devoted to providing an experience-driven education for students. Students don’t just learn about manufacturing processes in the classroom, they gain valuable hands-on training in welding, casting, injection molding, automation, and more.


With the Manufacturing Engineering Technology program’s growth, the new Manufacturing Engineering program at Brigham Young University is dedicated to maintaining this focus on experiential learning. New courses in smart manufacturing, design for manufacture and assembly, and manufacturing systems simulation, along with the program’s new automation, quality, and additive manufacturing laboratories will add to the existing CNC, plastics & composites, manual machining, welding, casting, and friction stir joining facilities to ensure students are prepared to tackle today’s issues.

Program Requirements: 

  • Credit hours: a minimum of 30 hours, six of which are thesis hours.  The remaining 24 hours are coursework, half of which must be offered by Manufacturing Engineering.
  • Of the 24 hours of coursework required, 21 credit hours must be at 500+ level, with 3 credits at the 400+ level upon approval by graduate committee.
  • Students from programs other than manufacturing engineering or from a non-ABET accredited program may be admitted provisionally, but may be required to take additional undergraduate courses during the first year.  Applicants will work with their potential graduate committee chair (advisor) to determine exactly which courses will be required.  These courses are prerequisites and will NOT count toward the MS degree.
  • Program of study: each student must submit a study list of approved courses during the first semester.
  • Prospectus: each student must submit a written prospectus during the second semester.
  • Biannual Evaluations: each student’s progress will be evaluated twice a year, in January and May. Satisfactory progress must be maintained in order to remain in the program.

Programme Structure


  • Residency: work toward the MS must be completed under the direction of a graduate faculty advisor while the student is in residence at BYU for at least two consecutive semesters of 6 or more hours of registration. “In residence” is defined as living and conducting research in the general vicinity of the university, where the student has ready access to research facilities and consultation with the faculty.
  • Graduate Seminar: all MS students are required to attend 8 graduate seminars each semester, for two semesters. The seminars include presentations by industry experts, faculty members, graduate students and invited guests.
  • Thesis: a written thesis describing original research must be completed and approved.  A maximum of six thesis credits (MFGEN 699R) may count toward the MS.
