Manufacturing Engineering- Bachelor of Science in Engineering

For information, contact the Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 56 Engineering Building (513-529-0710).

This program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (EAC/ABET, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012, telephone (410) 347-7700, http://www.abet.org/).

The primary mission of the department is to provide quality graduates to meet societal and industrial needs. Manufacturing engineering deals with product and process design. It requires the ability to plan the practices of manufacturing; to research and develop tools, manufacturing processes, machines and equipment, control strategies; and to integrate the facilities and systems so that quality products can be produced at a competitive cost.

Industry has a pressing need for academically qualified manufacturing engineers due to the fact that today’s products and the technology to manufacture them have become increasingly more sophisticated. Examples of new manufacturing technologies being applied to increase productivity, improve quality, and reduce costs include computer-aided design, robotics, statistical process control, and computer-integrated manufacturing systems.

Contemporary society’s and industry’s problems are not only technical, but also social and economic. The department provides graduates with in-depth education in mathematics, science, engineering science, manufacturing processes and methods, and engineering design, as well as requiring a broad education in computing, business, and liberal arts. The department is committed to excellence in undergraduate education: student learning, classroom effectiveness, assessment, engineering design and ethics integration, opportunities for leadership and student advising.

Graduates typically work as manufacturing engineers in areas such as product and process design, quality control, computer-aided manufacturing, and plant-facilities engineering. After having gained industrial experience in the above areas, graduates can move into technical management positions. Graduates may also continue their education at the graduate level. Graduating seniors are encouraged to take the Fundamentals of Engineering examination, which is the first of two examinations that lead to becoming a licensed professional engineer.

Educational Objectives

The following are the educational objectives for the Manufacturing Engineers. These are achieved and measured 2-5 years after the students graduate. The program develops students who:

  • solve problems by applying the knowledge required for manufacturing engineers.
  • solve engineering problems by applying mathematics, basic sciences, and engineering science.
  • solve engineering problems by applying engineering design.
  • verbally communicate effectively information related to their work.
  • write effectively information related to their work.
  • serve as an effective team member.
  • serve as an effective team leader.
  • serve on multidisciplinary teams.
  • integrate and utilize fundamental knowledge in computing, business, and liberal arts in their job.
  • know and practice ethical responsibility as outlined by the Engineering Code of Ethics.
  • engage in continuous learning and intellectual growth.

Departmental Honors

If you excel in your studies, you may qualify for the University Honors Program or the program for Honors in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering. As a senior in these programs, you will have the opportunity to work closely with the faculty on research projects of interest.

Credit/No Credit Policy

All required engineering courses and all prerequisite and co-requisite courses must be taken for a grade.
