Primary tabs

Atlanta (September 24, 2015) – Georgia Tech Professional Education has partnered with the Georgia Tech Renewable Bioproducts Institute (RBI) and the Georgia Tech College of Engineering to offer a professional master’s degree in manufacturing leadership (PMML), the first of its kind in Georgia. The degree program is designed to prepare leaders for companies and organizations in the manufacturing industry of the 21st century.

The professional master’s program was developed in response to President Barack Obama’s Advanced Manufacturing Partnership’s (AMP) recommendation, made in its July 2012 report entitled, “Report to the President on Capturing Domestic Competitive Advantage in Advanced Manufacturing.” The AMP recommends that research universities “establish new masters-level professional degrees in manufacturing leadership” that provide “a comprehensive overview of manufacturing as well as technological and operational perspectives” to meet the nationally accepted trends for advancing manufacturing education.
