Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by Program Type

The Computer Aided Engineering program at Eastern Michigan University places a strong emphasis on preparing engineers with competent backgrounds in the engineering principles and utilizing the computer-based tools and techniques for all engineering functions and processes.

The curriculum is designed to train the individual to apply knowledge in mechanical engineering, engineering analysis, product design, automated manufacturing, CAD/CAM/CAE, and renewable energy engineering systems using computer aided engineering tools. To facilitate this, students in the program will be exposed to the nature of engineering environment through courses related to engineering design and analysis principles, and renewable energy engineering applications.

The program offers graduate work leading to the Master of Sciences degree in Computer Aided Engineering (MS/CAE). The M.S. program has three tracks: Design and Analysis, Renewable Energy, and Thesis. The thesis track is intended for students who are research-oriented. The other two non-thesis tracks do not involve research although students are encouraged to include capstone projects in their courses.
