What is Management & Engineering for Manufacturing (MEM)?

The Management & Engineering for Manufacturing (MEM) major is an independent academic major that is part of both the College of Engineering and the School of Business. During their time here, MEM students gain critical business and engineering skills, learn how to design solutions, and become effective team leaders. At graduation, they are part of an elite cohort with two tassels hanging from their cap, leaving with a B.S. degree conferred by both schools, total enterprise vision, and well-rounded knowledge of production in manufacturing and the service industries.
