Smart 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.
Manufacturing continues to remain one of the leading contributors to the national GDP, and the growth and innovation within nearly all sectors of manufacturing can be attributed to data driven solutions. Smart manufacturing uses data generation and evaluation at various scales to help make informed decisions from control of specific equipment to the operation of an entire factory. Smart or intelligent manufacturing technologies being applied to increase productivity, improve quality, and reduce costs include digital engineering/design/manufacturing, robotics and automation, real-time data analytics, lean and agile process management, six sigma statistical process control, and additive manufacturing. Smarter, automated and more flexible companies need academically qualified and skilled manufacturing engineers.
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 smart or digital manufacturing processes, data analytics, predictive maintenance, system engineering, digital twins, 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 development and design, quality control, advanced manufacturing, lean manufacturing, systems design and integrator, process and plant-facilities design, project management, and industrial engineering. 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.

The Student Outcomes, from ABET Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) criteria, prepare graduates of the Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering programs to attain the Program Educational Objectives.
- EAC (1) An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
- EAC (2) An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration to public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
- EAC (3) An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
- EAC (4) An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities
- EAC (5) An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
- EAC (6) An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze, and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
- EAC (7) An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
Smart Manufacturing Engineering Program Criteria
The Smart Manufacturing Engineering curriculum also provides graduates with:
MFG 1: An ability to design manufacturing processes.
MFG 2: An ability to design products and the corresponding processing machinery.
MFG 3: An ability to create competitive advantage by manufacturing planning, strategy, and control.
MFG 4: An ability to analyze, synthesize, and control manufacturing operations using statistical methods.
MFG 5: 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.
Credit/No Credit Policy
All courses in chemistry, physics, biology, mathematics, statistics and those in the College of Engineering and Computing (CPB, CSE, ECE, MME, CEC, EGM) that are used to fulfill requirements of the major, must be taken for a grade.
DOUBLE MAJORS: Students with two majors in the College of Engineering and Computing must take a minimum of 15 different/additional credit hours in their second major beyond the requirements of their first major.
