Financial Aid

ASU has many financial aid options. Almost everyone, regardless of income, can qualify for some form of financial aid. In fact, more than 70 percent of all ASU students receive some form of financial assistance every year.

* This is a priority deadline. Applications received after this date may still be considered.

Manufacturing Engineering, MS Tech

Manufacturing engineering draws upon two distinct bodies of knowledge, manufacturing processes (e.g., how materials are altered in either shape or properties) and the processes of manufacturing (e.g., manufacturing systems and management). This combination of topics is embedded in the MS in Manufacturing Engineering program and students can follow their interests by developing deeper expertise in either manufacturing processes or the processes of manufacturing. The degree provides advanced technical content to help students prepare for career transitions and improve company competitiveness. The program consists of a core set of courses designed to provide all students with advanced knowledge of manufacturing fundamentals and an introduction to systems engineering. The expertise developed in the core curriculum supports student focus areas building on existing unit faculty strengths, including automation, additive and subtractive manufacturing processes (including CNC machining), modeling and simulation, electronics manufacturing, and manufacturing management. A thesis, applied project or capstone course option is offered. Each of these options is designed to engage students with real-world applications of manufacturing engineering at an advanced level.

Admission Requirements 

Applicants must meet the following admission requirements:

  • Minimum of an earned U.S. bachelor's degree or higher from a regionally accredited institution or the equivalent of a U.S. bachelor's degree from an international institution that is officially recognized by that country in engineering, physical sciences, mathematics or a similar field.
  • The applicant must have maintained a “B” (3.00 on a 4.00 scale) grade point average (GPA) in the last 60 semester hours or 90-quarter hours of undergraduate coursework.
  • If the applicant does not meet the minimum GPA requirements, the application may still be considered. In certain cases, demonstrated aptitude through professional experience or additional post-baccalaureate education will be considered.
  • An online Graduate Admissions application
  • Official transcript from each college or university attended
  • Official GRE general exam scores
  • Submit a professional resume and personal statement as part of the online admissions application
  • Meet the English proficiency requirements, as defined by the Graduate Education office
  • Application deadlines: Fall – April 1, Spring – November 1
