Department of Manufacturing Engineering
The Master of Science in Applied Engineering (MSAE) degree program offered on the Statesboro Campus of Georgia Southern integrates state-of-the-art technology and interdisciplinary and conceptual science with hands-on, operational skills preparation. Graduates gain valuable knowledge and are placed in a unique position to make an immediate impact on their career and their employers. The undergraduate Manufacturing Engineering program was launched in the fall semester 2015. With a projected program rollout over four years, the first program graduates are expected in spring semester 2019. Graduate level courses in the areas of Lean and Six Sigma, Additive Manufacturing, NanoManufacturing, and Packaging will be offered as the rollout process progresses. These graduate courses are applicable as electives in MSAE concentrations as determined in consultation with the major advisor. MSAE concentrations are Electrical and Electronic Systems, Energy Science, Engineering Management, Information Technology, or Mechatronics. Thesis or Non-thesis tracks are available within the program. Research conducted through the thesis or independent study project provides opportunity for individualized in-depth study within the concentration.
