Master's in Integrated Product Development
The Master of Engineering Degree in Integrated Product Development program is offered exclusively to Picatinny Arensal employees.
The Integrated Product Development program is an integrated Master of Engineering degree program. The core courses emphasize the design, manufacture, implementation, and life-cycle issues of engineering systems. The remaining courses provide a disciplinary focus. The program embraces and balances qualitative, as well as quantitative, aspects and utilizes state-of-the-art tools and methodologies. It aims to educate students in problem-solving methodologies, modeling, analysis, simulation, and technical management. The program trains engineers in relevant software applications and in productive deployment and integration in the workplace.
Integrated Product Development Degree Requirements
All students in this program must complete ten courses (30 credits), comprised of four core courses and up to six elective courses selected from one of the four engineering tracks listed below. The student, with the approval of the graduate program director, may design customized tracks. Up to six elective credits may be taken in lieu of the course credits toward a project relevant to the selected track.
Integrated Product Development I
Integrated Product Development II
Modeling and Simulation
Product Management of Complex Systems
TRACKS OF STUDY
Students then choose from one of the following four engineering tracks:
This technology track provides an interdisciplinary graduate education in Armament Engineering. The program emphasizes systems engineering of military weapons from concept through development and field use. Technical disciplines in the design and manufacture of explosives, modeling and simulation of the interior and exterior ballistics, rocket and missile design, guidance and control, modern research instrumentation, and testing procedures are emphasized.
Interior Ballistics and Design for Projection
Theory and Performance of Propellants and Explosives I
Theory and Performance of Propellants and Explosives II
Choice of one
This track integrates product design, materials processing, and manufacturing expertise with modern computer software technology. The program is specifically concerned with product design for manufacturing, manufacturing systems analysis and development, robotics and control, and the integration of the various phases and activities associated with turning a concept into a deliverable product. Different manufacturing processes are introduced, and the design and control of these processes are discussed. Of particular interest are the development and implementation of models to predict the effects of design and manufacturing choices on system performance, producibility, and economics.
Quality in Life Sciences Manufacturing
Optimization in Mechanical Engineering
Introduction to Robotics
Introduction to Modern Control Engineering
Computer-Intergrated Design and Manfacturing
Analysis and Design of Composites
Design of Production Systems
Electrical and Computer Engineering
The track in Electrical and Computer Engineering emphasizes the major themes intrinsic to design, manufacture, and implementation of electronic systems, as well as the transmission of signals and information in a digital format, emergent hardware principles, software integration, and data manipulation algorithms. Mathematical principles underlie all aspects of engineered systems, and a solid background in such principles is emphasized. Today’s systems also reflect an integration of several means of manipulating signals, ranging from traditional analog filters to advanced digital signal processing techniques. The three courses that are common to Electrical and Computer Engineering emphasize the above. The remaining three courses can be either in Electrical Engineering, which emphasizes core principles guiding the design, manufacture, and implementation of today’s diverse set of electronic systems, or in Computer Engineering, which provides a background in the principles and practices related to data/information systems design and implementation.
Logical Design of Digital Systems I
Physical Design of Wireless Systems
Probability and Stochastic Processes I
Analytical Methods in Electrical Engineering
Linear Systems Theory
Systems Reliability and Design
This program focuses on issues that arise in the design and implementation of specific components or sub-assemblies of a complex system, rather than on the engineering of the overall system itself. Included is the diverse set of engineering skills that must be applied in the design and development of a complex system.
Fundamentals of Systems Engineering
System Supportability and Logistic
Design for System Reliability, Maintainability, and Supportability
System Architecture and Design
