Manufacturing Engineering- Bachelor of Science in Engineering
For information, contact the Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 56 Garland Hall, 513-529-0710.
This program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
The primary mission of the Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering Department is to prepare high quality graduates to meet the emerging needs of society and industry. Manufacturing engineering deals with the design of products and the corresponding processing machinery. It requires the ability to plan the practices of manufacturing; to research and develop tools, processes, instruments, equipment, and control strategies; and to integrate facilities and systems to produce quality products 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 sophisticated. Examples of new manufacturing technologies being applied to increase productivity, improve quality, and reduce costs include computer-aided engineering/design/manufacturing, robotics and automation, lean and agile process management, six sigma statistical process control, and additive manufacturing.
Creating appropriate engineering solutions to the current problems facing industry and society often involves complex social, political, environmental and economic issues. The department provides graduates with an in-depth education in mathematics, science, engineering, and design, with a focus on manufacturing processes, methods and materials, as well as requiring a broad education in computing, economics, and the liberal arts. The department is committed to excellence in undergraduate education: student learning, classroom effectiveness, assessment, engineering design, professional ethics, student advising and opportunities for leadership.
Graduates typically work as manufacturing engineers in areas such as product and process design, quality control, computer-aided manufacturing, plant-facilities engineering, and operations management. After gaining industrial experience, graduates often move into organizational management positions. Graduates are also prepared to 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.
Program Educational Objectives
Graduates of Miami's Manufacturing Engineering program are expected to attain or achieve the following Program Educational Objectives within a few years of graduation:
- Development in their chosen profession and/or progress toward an advanced degree
- The trust and respect of others as effective and ethical team members
- A reputation as a source of innovative solutions to complex problems
- Positions of leadership in an organization and/or on teams.
The Student Outcomes, from ABET Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) criteria, prepare Manufacturing Engineering graduates to attain the Program Educational Objectives.
EAC A: An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
EAC B: An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
EAC C: An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability.
EAC D: An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams.
EAC E: An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
EAC F: An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
EAC G: An ability to communicate effectively.
EAC H: The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
EAC I: A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning.
EAC J: A knowledge of contemporary issues.
EAC K: An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
Manufacturing Engineering Program Criteria
The Manufacturing Engineering curriculum also provides graduates with:
MFG L: An ability to design manufacturing processes.
MFG M: An ability to design products and the corresponding processing machinery.
MFG N: An ability to create competitive advantage by manufacturing planning, strategy, and control.
MFG O: An ability to analyze, synthesize, and control manufacturing operations using statistical methods.
MFG P: An ability to make technical inferences about a manufacturing process by measuring process variables.
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.
