Requirements listed here are in addition to those stated in the Degree Requirements section of the Graduate Bulletin.
The 30-credit Master of Engineering (MEng) or Master of Science (MS) in Additive Manufacturing and Design (AMD) degree programs offers graduate students the analytical and practical skills required to digitally design, develop, engineer, analyze, numerically model, optimize, fabricate, and inspect new components and subassemblies using appropriate additive manufacturing and digital design technologies.
All AMD students will be required to enroll in five core courses that cover additive manufacturing processes, materials for additive manufacturing, the engineering and scientific foundations of additive manufacturing, design for additive manufacturing, and a hands-on laboratory experience in additive manufacturing.
In addition to the core courses, students will be required to enroll in electives (8 credits) that include design, materials, manufacturing, technical writing, technical presentations, and supply chain, along with enrolling in a seminar course (1 credit, not counted toward the degree). To meet the degree requirements, MEng students will also be required to complete a culminating project that leads to a paper and MS students will be required to complete either a paper or thesis.
Tuition and Fees
Tuition and fees for students vary by residency status and number of credits. The Tuition and College Cost Estimator provides an estimate of the tuition, fees and essential costs associated with attending Penn State (University Park or World Campus) as a graduate student.
At this time the program does not provide departmental assistantships or fellowships. Citizens and permanent residents with demonstrated financial need may apply for loans, work-study, and need-based grants by submitting a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Educational loans are available through the Office of Student Aid. For more details about graduate student loan options, please visit the Office of Student Aid.
