Manufacturing Engineering Technology

Manufacturing engineering technology (MfgET) is a multi-disciplinary field that integrates knowledge from areas of study such as science, math, computers, mechanical engineering, electronics engineering, management and economics. MfgET is a profession that gives you the expertise to develop tools, processes, machines and equipment to make quality products at a reasonable cost. The profession also involves working with and coordination of people from several other fields. In addition to providing a strong background in the fundamentals of manufacturing engineering technology, the program places an emphasis in the application of computer systems to modern manufacturing. This includes topics such as robotics, computer-aided design (CAD), programmable logic controllers (PLC), and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM). The classes and labs in the curriculum average about 15 students and are taught by faculty who are dedicated to undergraduate teaching excellence. Students pursuing the B.S. degree in manufacturing at LSSU have the option to minor in robotics technology. LSSU is one of only a few universities in the U.S. to offer the robotics specialization in the ETAC of ABET-accredited manufacturing engineering technology B.S. degree. LSSU is home to one of the best robotics educational facilities in North America, and recently listed among in the 20 Colleges with Really Cool Robots on Campus by the blog at Our MfgET graduates have had 100 percent job placement with competitive starting salaries. A scientific “high technology” basis in the field of manufacturing engineering technology is evolving. The MfgET program is designed to place LSSU graduates at the leading edge of this evolution.

A minor in Robotics Technology is a perfect compliment to this degree.

Mechatronics engineering technologists use a combination of mechanical, electrical, computer, software, and robotics skills to work with technologies such as automated and computer-integrated manufacturing systems, industrial robots, mobile robots, smart sensors, actuators, and control systems.  Mechatronics students will gain valuable experience working with industry-standard equipment including industrial robots, PLCs, vision systems, conveying systems, simulation software, CNC and manual machining centers, end-of-arm tooling, and sensors. Students will learn the application of artificial intelligence, Industry 4.0 principles, industrial control systems, and cyber-physical systems and security.

New classes for the program include:

  • CSCI 265 – Intro to Artificial Intelligence
    Description:   An introduction to the techniques and tools used in artificial intelligence and machine intelligence, including problem solving, search, knowledge representation, logic, and inference. Prerequisites: CSCI121 or EGNR265 and MATH111 or equivalent test score. (3,0) 3
  • EGRS 235 – Industry 4.0
    Description:   An introduction to Industry 4.0 concepts and supporting technology. Students will learn the philosophy of Industry 4.0, the application of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), and the integration of workcell sensors for digital data collection for the purpose of analytics and predictive actions. Prerequisites: MATH131, EGEE125, (EGET110 or EGEE210), (EGNR140 or CSCI105 or EGNR265 or some programming background). (3,2) 4
  • EGRS 325 – Industrial Control Systems
    Description:   An introduction to the equipment and techniques commonly used in industrial control & automation systems. Topics include technical and safety standards, electrical diagrams, control panel design and wiring, pneumatic systems, and motor drives. Prerequisite: EGET110 or EGEE210. (2,3) 3
  • EGRS 375 – Cyber-Physical Sys & Security
    Description:   An introduction to cyber-physical systems. Students will learn digital storage of sensory data, cloud (edge) computing, threat analysis and data protection at the hardware level, security designs applicable for industrial environments, and the application of various intelligent algorithms for data analytics. Prerequisites: MATH207 or MATH308, EGNR265 or CSCI201, CSCI265, Pre or Co-requisite EGRS235. (3,0) 3
