BS in Product Design and Manufacturing Engineering

Sequence of Courses

The BS in Product Design and Manufacturing Engineering (BSPDM) program requires the completion of 128 credit hours for graduation, minus hours commensurate with advanced placement credit. Students may select 12 credit hours of technical electives to emphasize the study of advanced engineering concepts and topics in other engineering disciplines that impact design and processing. Selection of appropriate courses allows students to tailor their studies to fit their individual interests and needs. Students’ programs of study are determined in consultation with their faculty advisors.

Specific requirements for the product design and manufacturing engineering program are given below.
