Manufacturing Engineering (certificate)

Excellence in three-dimensional design and production, especially knowledge of quality CAD, CAM, CNC machining, and robotics, remains critical as industries strive to reduce labor costs, increase productivity and profitability, tighten performance standards, and improve quality. 

This four-course, graduate-level certificate Manufacturing Engineering certificate program educates students in the latest technologies through a hands-on, industry-based curriculum taught by Tufts' renowned faculty in mechanical engineering, and contributes to the formation of future leaders in manufacturing engineering.

Certificate students may interact with emerging technologies to design, build and test at the Mechanical Engineering Department's Bray Lab.
