Manufacturing Engineering Technology provides a modern and challenging program to prepare students to work with sophisticated and changing technology in a global marketplace. Students gain skills to organize workforce, materials, and equipment as well as to design, construct, operate, and maintain technical engineering projects. Manufacturing Engineering Technology majors also develop problem solving and critical thinking skills through a solid base in business management principles.
At WIU, two areas of specialization are offered in Manufacturing Engineering Technology. In Automation and Robotics, students are prepared to use engineering solutions such as electronics, automation, and fluid power systems. Students who specialize in Manufacturing Design and Production study material science as engineering solutions through the use of CAD/CAM and CNC machining.
