Bachelor of Science in Manufacturing & Design Engineering (MaDE)
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 MaDE program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
Students in the MaDE program constantly explore new pathways in manufacturing and design engineering. They develop the ability to integrate various design and manufacturing processes into an effective system for delivering value to the end user and/or marketplace.

All McCormick engineering students begin with the Engineering First® program: a two-quarter sequence that includes Design Thinking and Communication (DTC) and a four-quarter sequence of Engineering Analysis. This knowledge builds a solid foundation for any career in design, product development, or manufacturing.
Objectives & Outcomes
MaDE students learn and participate in all aspects of product realization, from product design to manufacturing technologies and operations. The program focuses on three key areas:
- Process and product design
- Manufacturing systems
- Manufacturing management
