**Bachelor of
Manufacturing Engineering
**The manufacturing engineering
program at UDM was developed in cooperation with its university, industrial and
organizational partners, as part of the National Science Foundation supported
Greenfield Coalition. It is centered on the integration of experiential and
academic activities which it is able to offer through the Center for Advanced
Technologies at Focus:HOPE (CAT).

Instruction is provided through a
coach/tutor paradigm with instructional materials developed and produced by
faculty from the five partner universities. The instructional materials have
been developed in modular format which are packaged to constitute courses
(knowledge areas) which in turn satisfy the curricular objectives of educating
‘manufacturing engineers for the 21st century’. The integration of this
academic work with experiential manufacturing activities creates the necessary
set of competencies defined by the Coalition for that 21st Century
Manufacturing Engineer.
