For decades, the Manufacturing Engineering Technology program has been devoted to providing an experience-driven education for students. In 2019, the MET program transitioned to the new Manufacturing Engineering (MFGEN) program. In MFGEN, students don’t just learn about manufacturing processes in the classroom, they gain valuable hands-on training in welding, casting, injection molding, automation, and more. New courses in smart manufacturing, design for manufacture and assembly, data analysis, and manufacturing systems simulation, along with the program’s new automation, quality, and additive manufacturing laboratories add to the existing CNC, plastics & composites, manual machining, welding, casting, and friction stir joining facilities to ensure students are prepared to tackle today’s issues.
