INDUSTRIAL AND MANUFACTURING ENGINEERING PROGRAM (IME)

Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering Program (IME)

The Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering (IME) program is concerned with the design, improvement, and installation of integrated systems of people, materials, information, equipment, energy and money. Those systems include products, manufacturing processes, production systems, service systems and government units and agencies.

The IME program includes two interconnected majors in Industrial Engineering and Manufacturing Engineering. Industrial Engineering concentrates on designing, installing, and improving procedures and systems for effective and efficient operation of enterprises in production, service and government systems. Manufacturing engineers transform raw materials, parts and subassemblies into intermediate and final products and systems. Manufacturing Engineering involves designing processes to make high-quality, functional and economical products; developing facilities for efficient production systems; and utilizing advanced manufacturing technologies. Industrial and Manufacturing engineers work closely together in designing, planning and using state-of-the-art technologies in the production of the highest quality products while assuring a competitive level of productivity and competitive cost.

The IME curriculum provides a broad foundation in all engineering disciplines and in depth exposure to the current ideas, models, and methods of industrial engineering as well as manufacturing processes with emphasis on machining and product development. It also includes the important component of humanities and social sciences to help students understand the societal implications of their work.

This program is the choice of people with the aptitude and interest for careers that blend technology and people, and for those who see themselves as entrepreneurs and leaders in their future communities.
