Manufacturing Engineering Industry Sponsored Projects
During their senior year, Manufacturing Engineering students design and implement a project of their choosing. Students present their projects to their peers, faculty, and project sponsors at the end of spring quarter. Projects are often in collaboration with companies in industry. A successful Engineering program combines what is learned in the classroom and experienced in the lab with real-world manufacturing and design problems.
It is essential to sponsor projects that focus on one or more of the four pillars of manufacturing engineering body of knowledge defined by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME). These pillars are materials and manufacturing processes, product tooling and assembly engineering, manufacturing systems and operations, and manufacturing competitiveness. It is crucial that we continue to offer challenging and suitable projects to our seniors in order to provide them with the practical experience in manufacturing engineering in addition to valuable experience in project management, technical writing, synthesizing many different concepts from their education, working on a team and individually, and communicating with suppliers and customers.
