Program Description

The Program – Smart Manufacturing Option

The Smart Manufacturing option will equip graduates with key skills in both instrumentation and controls engineering and information technology. Students will learn to install, operate, troubleshoot, and maintain automated systems. These systems will make use of networks of advanced sensors, data analytics, and information and communication technologies to improve manufacturing productivity. After completing the program, students will be able to build careers in areas such as electrical and electronics engineering and instrumentation and controls engineering.

Your Degree

Two-semester full-time schedule; a mixture of basic mathematics, science, and communications classes; program can be completed on a part-time basis.

NEW Program Features

  • New Smart Manufacturing lab equipped with:
    • Amatrol fluid flow process control trainers
    • Allen Bradley programmable logic controller (PLC) troubleshooting learning systems
    • Industrial-scale robotics equipment (Yaskawa and FANUC)
  • Program developed using funding from a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant. Industry partners supporting the grant include Festo, POET Biorefining, OhioHealth, RobotWorx, Custom Glass, Liqui-Box, Wilson Bohannon Lock Company, and Whirlpool.
  • Mixture of Engineering Technology and Information Technology courses (i.e. Cyber Security and Networking in Manufacturing) taught by faculty from both Departments.
  • Opportunities for students to sit for industry-recognized certifications related to Smart Automation at the end of the program – please check back for updated information.

Capstone Project and Internship

The program includes a capstone course that will allow students to work in teams on a project, developed in collaboration with Engineering faculty and industry partners, to solve a problem. The project will draw on skills from earlier course work in the program, including installing and operating various types of sensors and actuating devices as well and controlling a process using PLCs. The capstone course will provide valuable hands-on experience and give students a competitive advantage when securing an internship or full-time employment.

Students will also complete an internship that integrates academic skills with workplace experience.  Students in Engineering Technologies can earn college credit, make valuable professional contacts, and link their classroom studies to real-world workplace challenges.
