Title of Motion: Request from the College of Technology and Innovation– School of Engineering– for the establishment of an undergraduate degree- BS in Manufacturing Engineering
Action Requested: The Curriculum and Academic Programs Committee recommends University Senate approval of a proposal submitted by the College of Technology and Innovation – School of Engineering - for the establishment of an undergraduate degree – BS in Manufacturing Engineering
Rationale: This program being proposed is an evolution of the existing, and long standing, BS in Manufacturing Engineering Technology degree within the College of Technology and Innovation (CTI). This successful program, the only BS degree with manufacturing in its title in the state, provides the CTI with a strong foundation for the new program with its outstanding laboratories, faculty and alumni base in many of the manufacturing operations within the metropolitan area and region.
The new program will produce graduates who are prepared for employment in a variety of types of manufacturing environments.
