Product Realization Minor - ARCHIVE

University Park, College of Engineering (PRODR)

PROFESSOR TIMOTHY W. SIMPSON, in charge

This interdisciplinary minor is designed for students in all engineering disciplines who are interested in engineering practice in integrated design and manufacturing. The program culminates with a one- or two-semester project involving the design and manufacture of a new product. The purpose of the minor is to offer students state-of-the-art practice in integrated product/process design and manufacturing. Students completing the minor should: (1) understand the interaction of design and manufacturing through practical examples, (2) be familiar with the entrepreneurial skills needed to transfer a new product from initial idea to market, (3) understand the technical and management aspects of concurrent engineering and total quality management, and (4) have hands-on experience in designing and manufacturing a product, organizing and managing the effort, and interacting with the customer. A grade of C or better is required for all courses in the minor.
