Equip yourself to equip industry

The study of manufacturing engineering at USI takes you to the forefront of industry and the production of goods that benefit society. You learn to apply engineering principles in the design of products and processes, equipping yourself for a rewarding career in almost any manufacturing enterprise you choose.

Manufacturing engineering requires advanced math skills in calculus and differential equations. Oral and written communication skills are crucial, too. See all course requirements for USI's baccalaureate degree in manufacturing engineering.

For an engineering-related study of manufacturing that is less math-intensive, consider advanced manufacturing or industrial supervision. Both emphasize hands-on skills in the practical application of machines and systems.

The first and only baccalaureate degree program for manufacturing engineering in Indiana—and one of only 25 in the U.S.

Put your hands to work outside the classroom.

Your participation in student chapters of professional engineering societies prepares you to make the leap from classroom to career.

  • A team competition sponsored by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (IEEE) lets you get real-world experience in the design, construction and performance of robotics. In 2017, USI’s student engineers brought home a championship trophy.

  • SAE Baja challenges you to design and assemble a commercially feasible prototype for an all-terrain vehicle—and put it to the test against competitors.

  • In the Solar Splash, you and fellow students build a solar-powered electric boat and compete in a regatta with teams from across North America.

Engineering faculty encourage your best - and support you in and outside the classroom.

You are taught by engineering professors (not by assistants) in the classroom and laboratory. Many come from successful careers in industry—an added advantage for you to learn from their practical know-how.

Smaller classes (typically 24 students or fewer) and an open-door policy make it easy for you to interact with instructors. Meet our engineering faculty.
