Manufacturing Engineering Technology, Bio-Manufacturing Option (Bachelor of Science, B.S.)

Manufacturing Engineering Technology is the profession in which an understanding and application of a broad range of technologies is necessary for production and control of manufacturing processes. Manufacturing includes methods of production of industrial commodities and consumer products. The manufacturing professional must be able to plan, design, and implement sequence of operations using current technologies to produce products at competitive prices. Four-year B.S. degree graduates qualify for jobs related to production, productivity improvement, and process design. They also qualify for supervisory and managerial positions in plant engineering.

The Bio-Manufacturing option in the B.S. MET program is created to meet the ever-growing demand of highly educated workforce by the bio-production and research companies in the animal health corridor. B.S. degree graduates in bio-manufacturing qualify for jobs related to bio-production, packaging, maintenance, design, and lab scale-up work.

Program Educational Objectives (BS MET)

  1. Possess the general knowledge of manufacturing industry such as concepts, terminologies, basic and standard problem-solving techniques.
  2. Demonstrate the ability to analyze and implement production systems in a manufacturing setting.
  3. Function effectively in a group environment in the industrial workplace through demonstration of technical and communication skills.
  4. Understand professional, ethical, and social responsibilities.
  5. Possess basic knowledge in organic chemistry, cell biology and microbiology
  6. Familiarize with GMP, as well as governmental regulations related with bio-production.

Students who choose this bachelor degree program will have no more than 6 years from admission or subsequent declaration to meet the requirements listed below. If certification, accreditation or statutory requirements change and additional requirements become effective during this time, the new requirements take precedence.
