Mechanical Engineering

A masters is the first level of graduate coursework and can be obtained after you receive a bachelor’s degree. Earning a masters usually requires two years of full-time study, which amounts to 36 to 54 semester credits.

 

A wide range of knowledge as well as an assortment of methods and skills are necessary in mechanical engineering. This subject is diverse because it is the foundation of designing and manufacturing everything from small individual parts and devices to large systems.

The United States of America is a large country in Northern America, often known as the "USA", the "US", the "United States", "America", or simply "the States". It also gathers over 310 million people which is the world's third largest population. It includes densely populated cities with sprawling suburbs, and vast, uninhabited and naturally beautiful areas at the same time.

Program Mission

The master’s of manufacturing engineering program at Bradley University provides students with professional robust design and continuous improvement principles. The program gives students the ability to improve integrated systems, optimize manufacturing processes, adopt state-of-the-art materials, and produce superior quality products at minimal cost. By working closely with both constituencies and students, the department combines theoretical learning with hands-on application to keep students – and the organizations they benefit – globally competitive in today’s economy.

Role of Manufacturing Engineers Manufacturing engineers (MfE) are the intermediaries between consumers and the production floor. As the key personnel who understand the relationship between the Voices of the Customer (VOC) and the Voices of the Products (VOP), their leadership and management skills are critical in determining optimal processes, minimal production costs, superior products and customer satisfaction. Further, MfEs enhance production by eliminating waste; establishing standardized operations; creating safe, green working environments; and providing training and development to the workforce....
