The application of flexible manufacturing systems (FMS) to the totally automated factory requires technicians who can function in the world of robots, computerized numerical controlled (CNC) machines, computer-aided drafting and design (CADD), automated warehousing systems, and the total flexible manufacturing network. Manufacturing Engineering Technology is designed specifically to prepare students for technician-level employment in the fields of robotics, automated systems and associated areas under the broad umbrella of flexible manufacturing systems. The curriculum combines course offerings from the Electronic Engineering Technology and Mechanical Technology programs and includes four FMS technical courses while maintaining the same general studies and related studies currently required by those majors.

Program Learning Outcomes

Upon completion, the student will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate the ability to employ effective written, oral and visual communication in a technical environment by collecting, analyzing, and summarizing information and trends.
  2. Demonstrate an appreciation of the benefits that cultural diversity brings to a multidisciplinary team.
  3. Apply their knowledge of statics, strength of materials and material science in the design and analysis of mechanical components and systems to assure their structural integrity.
  4. Apply their knowledge of AutoCAD, Inventor and Solidworks in the design and documentation of mechanical components and systems.
  5. Apply their knowledge of hydraulics and pneumatics in the design of mechanical systems.
