BS in Manufacturing Engineering Technology
The present shortage of qualified manufacturing engineers and technologists is between 50,000 and 100,000 people—and the need is increasing. It is also estimated that between 20,000 and 30,000 new jobs are created in manufacturing engineering every year. Industrial productivity and technological innovations are driving this demand. The manufacturing engineering technology program prepares students to meet the demand for personnel well-versed in the new manufacturing technologies, which include computer-aided design, computer numerical control, microprocessor controls, robotics, computer-aided manufacturing, flexible manufacturing systems, assembly automation, computer-integrated manufacturing, and electronics manufacturing.
The goal of the manufacturing engineering technology program is to prepare individuals for professional employment in the fields of product design, development, and manufacturing. The program is designed to provide the skills necessary for applying emerging manufacturing technologies. A cooperative education program enhances these skills by allowing students to gain valuable experience working in the manufacturing industries. Throughout the academic program, a significant amount of hands-on laboratory experience in manufacturing is provided. The BS in Manufacturing Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), http://www.abet.org .
