BS - Industrial Technology, Concentration in Manufacturing Systems
The Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology with a concentration in Manufacturing Systems is designed to prepare students for technical and management careers in business and industry. Manufacturing Systems prepares you for a career in manufacturing design and management with a special focus on green operations and sustainable manufacturing. You will gain knowledge, skills, and practical experiences in innovative manufacturing processes and management, green product design, computer integrated manufacturing, sustainable manufacturing practices, robotics and control systems, and computer aided manufacturing.
This dynamic and expanding field applies computer design tools and other advanced technologies to the solving of problems in manufacturing systems, computer aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM), and computer integrated manufacturing (CIM). A new, strong emphasis on green design practices and sustainable operations will add to your basic and advanced industrial manufacturing design knowledge. Graduates of the BSIT in Manufacturing Systems will be able to:
1. Use skills in the planning, design, and implementation of sustainable manufacturing processes.
2. Implement Green Design solutions to industrial and consumer product design challenges.
3. Use understanding of the product life cycle and the management of product manufacturing to direct sustainable operations in industry and business.
4. Design and plan sustainable and green industrial facilities in conformance with LEEDS and other environmental standards.
5. Select and operate computer numerical control and other machines for the production of consumer and commercial products.
6. Use knowledge of the uses, advantages, and disadvantages of current and evolving manufacturing techniques including laser machining, electrical discharge machining, water jet and abrasive water jet machining, and rapid prototyping in modern production systems.
7. Select, analyze and use polymers, composites and other materials in the design of manufactured products.
8. Apply the theory and methods of computer-integrated manufacturing (CIM), including the computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) interface to industrial problems and settings.
9. Use the principles of production scheduling and planning in the management of the industrial environment.
10. Use robots and mechatronics for sustainable operations in a modern CIM environment.
11. Apply the latest methods for materials and production management including Just-in-Time (JIT), Materials Resource Planning (MRP), and Lean Manufacturing.
12. Integrate green design, sustainable manufacturing, and recyclable/reusable materials into the design and development of new products.
13. Apply the principles of Lean Manufacturing to manufacturing and soft systems.
14. Apply OSHA and NIOSH principles to facilities design and management.
