Our BS degree program in Manufacturing Systems Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology http://www.abet.org/), while the BS degree program in Engineering Management is fairly new and will seek accreditation soon). The programs are designed to provide the graduate a sound manufacturing systems engineering and engineering management education to better prepare them for the professional practice of the respective engineering field.
The department has a strong advisement, mentoring and tutoring system to better facilitate the success and prompt graduation of the students. Our senior design courses insure that the graduates experience real engineering and management projects. The Student Chapter (No. S327) of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME http://www.sme.org/) is very active and attends local, regional, and national competitions.
