The University of New Mexico Offers a Manufacturing Engineering Program and Research Opportunities in Albuquerque

The University of New Mexico (UNM) is the largest university in the state. Established in 1889, it is situated on 600 acres in the center of metropolitan Albuquerque. UNM is a Hispanic-service doctoral and research university. The resources of the university and its proximity to Sandia National Laboratories, Phillips Air Force Laboratory, Los Alamos National Laboratory, and numerous high-tech start-up and manufacturing companies provide an excellent environment for advanced studies and research.

Albuquerque has a metropolitan population of more than 780,000. With its unique blend of three cultures - Native American, Hispanic, and Anglo - the university is able to offer a wide variety of cultural and artistic events. Albuquerque is a mile above sea level and overlooks the Rio Grande. It abuts the Sandia Mountains, which tower to about 10,678 feet. New Mexico, nicknamed "Land of Enchantment," offers opportunities for cycling, boating, golfing, hiking, hunting, fishing, ballooning, rafting, mountain climbing, hand gliding, and skiing.

Prospective applicants should contact either the University of New Mexico's Manufacturing Engineering Program in Albuquerque or respective departments directly for curriculum information and application forms and instructions. The GRE General Test is required for admission to the Master of Engineering in Manufacturing Engineering (M.E.M.E.) program, the M.S. in manufacturing degree program, and the M.E.M.E./M.B.A. dual-degree program.

Master's Programs in Engineering and Manufacturing and a Dual-Degree M.B.A. Program Are Offered by UNM

The Manufacturing Engineering Program at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque is a multidisciplinary graduate-level program within the School of Engineering. The Manufacturing Engineering Program offers a Master of Engineering in Manufacturing Engineering (M.E.M.E.) through all School of Engineering departments except the Civil Engineering Department. The M.E.M.E. degree requires 33 credit hours. In addition, a 37-credit-hour Master of Science degree with a manufacturing concentration (M.S./Mfg.) is offered via the Mechanical Engineering Department. Students in the programs must complete a three-month industrial internship in a manufacturing setting in order to complete the M.E.M.E. and M.S./Mfg. degrees. Although a research thesis is an option, Manufacturing Engineering Program students typically elect to do a manufacturing project with industry.

The University of Mexico M.E.M.E. degree supports tracks in computer-integrated manufacturing (CIM), mechanical equipment manufacturing (MEM), and semiconductor and electronics manufacturing (SEM). The Manufacturing Engineering Program has a core curriculum that utilizes two M.B.A.-level courses provided by UNM's Anderson Schools of Management that cover manufacturing organization and management and microeconomics for managers. The SEM track has a special core that covers semiconductor process design, microelectronics design and processing, and factory design and operations. Several courses supported by the Manufacturing Engineering Program are offered to regional companies and federal laboratory sites via instructional television.

The university's Manufacturing Engineering Program and Anderson Schools of Management also offer a 60-hour dual-degree program leading to both the M.E.M.E. and M.B.A. degrees. An industrial internship and project are integral parts of the program.

Financial Aid and Research Facilities for Manufacturing and Engineering Programs at the University of New Mexico

The Manufacturing Engineering Program at the University of New Mexico is housed in the Manufacturing Training and Technology Center (MTTC), located at the university's Science and Technology Park in Albuquerque. This 56,000-square-foot facility supports teaching and training, research and development, start-up companies, and manufacturing prototyping. The MTTC houses offices, labs, a classroom, prototyping bays, CAD rooms, and a 6,200-square-foot microelectronics/microsystems clean room.

The Manufacturing Engineering Program has computer workstations, robot hardware and control software, CAD/CAM packages, factory simulators, dynamic systems modeling software, and extensive semiconductor and MEMS processing equipment.

The university's Manufacturing Engineering Program has a limited number of industrial fellowships for qualified students. The MEP and associated faculty members also conduct research projects in a number of areas, for which research assistantships and tuition support are sometimes available. The Manufacturing Engineering Program also assists students in seeking industrial support for internships, co-ops, and projects.
