The Bachelor of Science in Manufacturing and Design Engineering (MaDE) is the Segal Design Institute’s undergraduate program that culminates in a Bachelor of Science degree from Northwestern University’s McCormick School of Engineering. The program focuses on three key areas: Process and product design Manufacturing systems Manufacturing management Program Duration and Requirements Northwestern's academic year operates on a three-quarter system. Students complete 12 courses per year, typically taking four courses per quarter. To obtain the bachelor of science degree, a total of 48 courses is required. Additional curricular areas required for the MaDE program include: Mathematics basic sciences basic engineering social sciences and humanities Manufacturing and design core curriculum (10 courses) A design project (two courses) Technical electives Unrestricted electives Program Educational Objectives The program's educational objectives are to produce graduates who: Are capable of carrying out the wide range of activities inherent in the design and manufacture of world-class products, including product design, materials selection, manufacturing processes and systems design, and product validation Are able to remain abreast of and effectively use advanced manufacturing and design technology as it evolves, including CAD/CAM/CAE and state-of-the-art manufacturing machinery, tools, and equipment Are able to integrate different manufacturing processes into an effective system for producing goods that can compete in the world market. This includes production scheduling, inventory management, information systems, and system simulation Are able to participate in or lead user-centered design projects in the workplace, drawing upon realistic design project experiences and effectively using the design process to convert client wants and needs into design requirements Can effectively work in multidisciplinary teams Are skilled in written and oral presentation of their ideas, particularly in the technologies that are essential in the workplace. Possess a sense of responsibility to their profession and a desire for lifelong learning so that they can effectively adapt to changing demands in their work environment and perform tasks outside their field of expertise Are able to assume top managerial and leadership roles in the manufacturing environment Are aware of contemporary global, societal, ethical, and professional issues in the practice of engineering.
