This 21 credit interdisciplinary minor is designed for any engineering student who is interested in state-of-the-art practice in integrated product/process design and manufacturing. The program culminattes with a one- or two-semester project involving the design and manufacture of a new product.
The purpose of the minor is to offer students state-of-the-art practice in integrated product/process design and manufacturing. Students completing the minor should:
- Understand the interaction of design and manufacturing through practical examples;
- Be familiar with the entrepreneurial skills needed to transfer a new product from initial idea to market;
- Understand the technical and management aspects of concurrent engineering and total quality management; and
- Have hands-on experience in designing and manufacturing a product, organizing and managing the effort, and interacting with the customer.
