The Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering offers the following curricula:

Bachelor of Science in Engineering (Industrial and Entrepreneurial)
Bachelor of Science (Engineering Graphics and Design Technology)
Bachelor of Science (Engineering Management Technology)
Bachelor of Science (Manufacturing Engineering Technology).

Graduates from these programs are employed in a wide variety of positions in both manufacturing and service industries. A minor in manufacturing is available to those students majoring in the Haworth College of Business.

Cooperative Education

Students may elect the cooperative plan of education. In this plan, the student alternates a semester of study on campus with a semester of compensated industrial experience. Students may work in their area of study, gaining valuable professional experience.

Academic Advising

Students should contact the Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering departmental advisor as early as possible. The advisor is available to assist in individual program planning, recommend electives appropriate to a student’s educational objectives, discuss employment opportunities, and help resolve academic problems. Substitutions and transfer credit must be approved by the advisor, curriculum committee, and department chair. The advisor is located in Room E-102 CEAS (269) 276-3260. Because of prerequisites and limited offering times, students must consult with an academic advisor for proper course sequence.

Technology Curricula

“Engineering Technology” is the profession in which knowledge of the applied mathematical and natural sciences gained by higher education, experience centered on practice, and competence developed in a specific field is devoted to application of engineering principles and the implementation of technological advances for the benefit of humanity through its focus on product improvement, manufacturing, and automation of technological processes and operation functions.
