Overview

Manufacturing Engineering Technology (MfgET) is a profession that gives you the expertise to develop tools, processes, machines and equipment to make quality products at a reasonable cost. The profession also involves working with and coordinating people from several other fields.

In addition to providing a strong background in the fundamentals of manufacturing engineering technology, the program places an emphasis on the application of computer systems to modern manufacturing technologies. This includes topics such as robotics, computer-aided design (CAD), programmable logic controllers (PLC), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM),and simulation of manufacturing systems. The classes and labs in the curriculum average about 12 students and are taught by faculty who are dedicated to undergraduate teaching excellence.
