The Manufacturing minor is intended to provide our current undergraduates the skills and knowledge for successful careers in manufacturing systems and processes, and their practical applications ranging from manufacturing processes to other industries such as robotics, automotive and aerospace. Students will be exposed to applications of cyber-physical systems, robotics, and automated manufacturing as well as automotive and aerospace industries.  Some of the skills required to pursue employment opportunities, which may be imparted through the manufacturing minor, include, but are not limited to, industrial safety practices and procedures; control of manufacturing processes; flexible manufacturing systems; process planning and optimization; robotic and automated manufacturing; and computer-integrated manufacturing/CAD/CAM integration.
