Management and Engineering for Manufacturing (MEM)

The Management & Engineering for Manufacturing (MEM) major is an unique academic program that belongs to both the School of Engineering and the School of Business, who jointly award a BS degree.

UConn’s Management and Engineering for Manufacturing (MEM) Program is built upon a simple philosophy: to be effective, technological innovations in manufacturing must be applied to a streamlined and simplified operating environment. Through their studies and internships in the MEM Program, students develop a thorough understanding of the interrelationships among the different areas of a manufacturing enterprise. An integrated education provides a competitive advantage in the manufacturing arena, in which applications of subject matter from business and engineering are equally important.

Students who major in MEM are eligible to apply to the Accelerated Master of Science in Business Analytics and Project Management (MSBAPM) Program.

The Management and Engineering for Manufacturing (MEM) major is available to students at the Storrs Campus.
