Advanced Manufacturing, as the core component of enterprise systems, encompasses effective and efficient integration and synthesis of automation technologies, human resources, and decision-making models that facilitate design, planning, scheduling, and control of production of goods and provision of services. Enterprise Engineering is defined as the body of knowledge, principles, and practices having to do with the analysis, design, implementation and operation of an enterprise.

The MS in AMEE is truly an interdisciplinary program founded on the strong collaboration of the Departments of Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Information Systems and Technology Management, Management Science and Statistics, and Computer Science and the Center for Advanced Manufacturing and Lean Systems (CAMLS). Graduate students are exposed to research problems through interaction with the industry members of CAMLS and its state-of-the-art laboratory facilities.
