Graduate Programs: Manufacturing Group

The Manufacturing Processes and Systems focus group concentrates engineering efforts in solving industrial and manufacturing problems. Example problems include:

  • planning and modeling the manufacturing system,
  • forecasting industrial needs for materials,
  • determining the best ways to transport goods to customers,
  • developing processes for products,
  • forming a basic understanding of metal forming and cutting,
  • designing assembly systems, and
  • improving the environmental impacts of industry.

A key aspect of this program is the blend of practical plant expertise with the benefits of computational technologies including computer-aided design and manufacturing. Processes are understood from a hands-on perspective and expanded through theoretical defining models. Engineering materials are studied throughout their life cycle from raw material acquisition, product creation and usage, to remanufacturing, recycling and final material disposal. Key expertise within this group include:

  • internationally recognized faculty in computer-aided design and manufacturing engineering,
  • facilities planning and modeling and environmentally conscious design and manufacturing,
  • rapid prototyping,
  • system optimization,
  • artificial intelligence,
  • process engineering,
  • grinding and abrasives engineering,
  • facilities planning and modeling and
  • environmentally conscious design and manufacturing.
