The master of science program in manufacturing and mechanical systems integration is a multidisciplinary degree offered by the department of manufacturing and mechanical engineering technology and packaging science, in collaboration with the E. Philip Saunders College of Business, the Kate Gleason College of Engineering, and the B. Thomas Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences.
This program is designed for individuals who wish to achieve competence in the effective integration of the computing, manufacturing, design, quality, and management functions found in many manufacturing enterprises. Students take a set of common core courses and then select a concentration in automated manufacturing, electronics packaging, management, product design, quality, or software development.
Admission to the MS degree in manufacturing and mechanical systems integration requires:
- a bachelor’s degree (or equivalent) from an accredited academic institution in the field of engineering, engineering technology, computing, or business. Students with degrees in other disciplines will be considered on an individual basis.
- A minimum grade point average of 3.0 is required. Students with a grade point average below 3.0 will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and may be admitted on a probationary basis. These students will have to secure a B or better average in the first three graduate courses to be considered for full admission.
- College-level coursework in computer programming, and probability and statistics.
- Two professional recommendations.
- Transcripts from previous college attendance.
- A clearly written, one-page statement of purpose in addition to the graduate application form.
International applicants are required to submit scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) and the Graduate Record Exam (GRE). A minimum score of 550 (paper-based), 213 (computer-based), or 79-80 (Internet-based) on the TOEFL is required. A score of 1,200 (V&Q) and an analytical writing score of 3.5 or higher are required on the GRE. Applicants with low GRE scores may be admitted conditionally; they may be required to take additional English language tests and, if required, English language courses along with a reduced MS program course load.
