Automated Manufacturing Engineering
Automated Manufacturing Engineering (AMF) is a multidisciplinary field. It integrates knowledge from areas of:
- Mechanical engineering
- Electronics engineering
Following courses in fundamental engineering knowledge, you'll learn how to apply sound scientific principles to solve practical problems in industry in the area of manufacturing engineering.
This concentration places an emphasis on the application of computer systems to modern manufacturing by means of such topics as:
- Computer-aided design (CAD)
- Hydraulics and pneumatics systems (H&P)
- Programmable logic controllers (PLC)
- Computer-aided manufacturing (CAM)
- Computer integrated manufacturing (CIM)
As in other engineering programs, the educational objectives of the Bachelor of Science degree program in automated manufacturing engineering are as follows:
- Domain Knowledge: Graduates will be able to apply their in-depth understanding of mechanical or manufacturing systems within the constraints of performance specification, budget, and scheduling.
- Professional Practice: Graduates will develop their engineering design, problem-solving and communication skills, and aptitude for innovation, as they work on multi-disciplinary teams.
- Lifelong Learning: Graduates will become experts in their chosen fields, members of their professional societies, and broaden their professional knowledge with formal and/or informal continuing education.
- Engineering Citizenship: Graduates will practice the ethics of their profession, consistent with a sense of social.
The Automated Manufacturing Engineering curriculum is constructed to include abundant experiential learning. This is accomplished through the integration of laboratory experiences within the framework of the theoretical courses in the basic curriculum, and by making use of well-equipped laboratories and computing facilities. Concentrations in manufacturing engineering, control systems, and automation engineering are available in this program, with a focus on robotics and automation, feedback and product and process design, and manufacturing systems. A team-based senior project completes the technical education.
